No matter how devoted you are to your team and your lucky gear, there’s always room to give your fan gear a little bit of an upgrade. Thankfully, the fashion gurus at The Elder Statesman have teamed with the NBA to create a selection of sweaters, scarves, pom beanies, watchman caps, and T-shirts for men and women that’ll make your gameday (and everyday) wardrobe championship-ready.
Direct from the mind of The Elder Statesman founder Greg Chait, the objective was to create something that allowed fans to show love to their favorite teams, while still feeling classic and elegant. But these sweaters aren’t just for supporting your team, they’ll have you looking like you came directly from a courtside celebrity row.
Made from unbelievably soft cashmere wool, there’s more than a slight chance that these sweaters are going to earn minutes whether it’s gameday or not. The collection features the New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers, Golden State Warriors, Brooklyn Nets, Cleveland Cavaliers and Chicago Bulls (along with a few other teams not featured above)—so you can feel comfortable sliding these knits into your closet’s starting five this season.
Getting your hands on these sweaters isn’t as hard as scoring NBA Finals tickets, but that doesn’t mean they’re not exclusive. Releasing initially in partnership with luxury retailer Barneys New York, these sweaters are available at Barneys flagship locations in Beverly Hills, Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Seattle, New York and online. Shortly thereafter, the knits will trickle out through The Elder Statesman’s own online shopping channels.
Whether you’re aiming to look like you’ve stepped out of your favorite arena’s suite or simply want to rep your squad in a high-class way, these sweaters are sure to posterize your style rivals. Pick up these knits at Barneys New York stores today.
