Officially licensed retro NFL sweaters by Junk Food Clothing caught our eye this morning. We have been talking about the throwback varsity trend for quite some time now and this is a perfect example of how to convey understated team sports nostalgia. Only issued for East Coast and Midwestern teams thus far, the sweaters are 100% acrylic (we were hoping for a merino blend), inspired by NFL team sweaters designed by Cliff Engle in the 1980s. In trend talk, that translates to — an authentic interpretation — our favorite design catchphrase. We will be highlighting a few more of our top team sports picks over the next few weeks, stay tuned.
