adidas Originals by Originals: David Beckham & J. Bond
adidas has put more and more effort into Originals since it started really pumping its heritage. Now it seems that Originals also means original people (collaborations), as well as everyday gear. The David Beckham Originals line by J.Bond of Undefeated launched in 2010 and has continued to grow and impress since then, offering a full line of clean and understated, quality garments and shoes that would fit nicely into any Gentleman’s wardrobe. Although, truth be told, they’re rubbish for playing sports in.
We recently examined the current offering, and while not everything appealed (the footwear), much of it did (the clothing). The one thing that you notice with all the pieces is the quality of construction and the choice of materials.
We walked away with this Knit Wool Sweater, and although we had to pluck the subtle but oddly placed adidas Originals label off the front right pocket, the garment itself is top quality. Beyond the fit and the button/zip combo, the highlight is that it’s lined with thin cotton, meaning you can wear it with a t-shirt and not irritate your skin.
Well done Becks, nice gear, now if we could just find a collaboration that involved four parties.
