This season sees a new collection of sweatshirts and jogging bottoms added to the British Vintage Boxing range. All of our new sweats are made from a premium Jaspe marl brush back sweat fabric. Jaspe marls are made by dying a number of yarns then twisting them together before knitting to give a unique vintage appearance.
Introducing the Bombardier crewneck sweatshirt – an ode to the great boxer ‘Bombardier’ Billy Wells, British and British Empire champion between 1911-1919. This latest sweatshirt has been given a raglan sleeve, side panel, stitched eye-lets, two- tone ribs and contrast top-stitching - newly added authentic features – inspired by old school sweatshirts, couched within a modern cut for an optimum fit.
To create our Navy and Khaki colours we have over-dyed the grey Jaspe marl retaining the texture of the marl. This collection has a mix of graphics, embroideries and sewn on patches. On the sleeve we have added a BVB regal crown monogram logo, which throughout history has been traditionally representative of power, honour, glory and triumph.
The Bombardier jogging bottom like the sweatshirt is another contemporary take on a classic staple, we have added a ribbed cuff inspired by heritage sweat pant detailing whilst still retaining a modern feel in silhouette. Eye-lets below the pocket add a further subtle nod to the past.
