If you’re reading this, the Russell Athletic hoodie probably needs little introduction. Okay, we might be a projecting a bit. For context: Russell Athletic is an elder statesman of sorts in the sportswear world, not only because the brand has been around for over a century, but because it literally invented the sweatshirt. Around a century ago, Mr. Athletic—Russell, to his friends—concocted the first hoodie as a comfier alternative to the woolen jerseys football players wore on the field. The newfangled cotton sweatshirt became a massive hit, solidifying Russell Athletic as the godfather of athletic clothing in the process.
If you knew all that and remain woefully unimpressed with our grasp of menswear arcana, we’ve got another bit of intel you might appreciate: thanks to Prime Day, said Russell Athletic hoodie—in pullover, crewneck, and zip-up form—is available for way less than usual on Amazon.
In the 120-plus years it’s been around, Russell has long since outgrown its association with the football field and the locker room. These days, vintage fiends pay hundreds for its sun-faded hoodies, which designers are wont to use as a kind of blueprint for their own high-end iterations.
At right around $25, Russell’s most popular Dri-Power fleece sweats were already an insane value proposition—with a healthy 35% discount, the offer becomes damn-near criminal. Factoring in the dough you’ll save, we won’t blame you for taking that moolah and putting it towards another colorway. Fashion math—it never fails!
