This past weekend, Aimé Leon Dore hosted a basketball tournament in Harlem dubbed Thank You Mike, an outdoor 3×3 single-elimination bracket style competition. (The "Mike" in question here is one Michael Jordan, whose cultural influence has loomed large for Aimé Leon Dore.) The event was an old-school pick-up ball game, synonymous with the sort of nostalgic NYC culture that drives the brand. In conjunction with the tournament, Aimé Leon Dore has launched the Thank You Mike capsule collection, featuring graphic tees, hoodies and a water-repellent windbreaker. The goods are available now at aimeleondore.com, as well as the Aimé Leon Dore Concept Shop on 179 Mott St. in NYC.
A nod to the GOAT
