The Varsity influence has clearly spread beyond the jacket itself, popping up in this month’s Converse Japan release, and now in this sweatshirt from BBC/Ice Cream. Starting with a streetwear staple, the full-zip hoodie, Ice Cream adds a striped ribbing at the hem, shoulders, and cuffs. The overall effect is a great hybrid look, with the casual street appeal of a hoodie combined with a vintage athletic feel. The piece is finished with a wild Ice Cream Tiger applique at the chest, and on the reverse, both of which are in keeping with the vintage sports apparel theme. Definitely an interesting option for a hooded sweatshirt. Check out the reverse after the jump. The Tiger Full Zip Hoodie releases December 8th, via: BBC/Ice Cream Japan.
