When Nike announced the inaugural Jack Purcell collection, I was nonplussed to say the least. I figured there would be some Purcells with some new colors and materials. Bingo there. We all know they’re classic shoes and awesome for warm weather. But Converse really came through in spades with one item in particular: The Jack Purcell Habitat Stripes Hoodie.
Sure, it looks like a pajama shirt with a hood attached. There’s more to it though. The pinstripes are a throwback to classic Americana workwear. You know, when men were men, smoked Lucky Strikes at the age of 12 and worked 20 hour shifts at factories. Super dope. The hoodie would work well with a henley, some well worn denim and beat to shit workboots for that industrial-worker-that-cleans-up-nice feel. Now if I could only get some damn pricing information on it.
