CFDA has teamed up (HA-HA! Get it?) with the Amazin' Mets to release a line of designer team apparel. While we can hope that this will expand to other teams - and be higher quality than the VS Pink gear - nothing has been confirmed. Designers of the apparel include leading menswear gurus like Billy Reid, Yigal Azrouël, and Loomstate.
I have never in my life worn a piece of Mets apparel - save for the night that I took my nieces, bro and sis-in-law to the Mets game in late May and I put on my giveaway Mets hat for ten seconds for a family photo (sorry, I never did get those adorable pics up...yet...) - but I am really, really digging this unisex Mr. Met t-shirt by Shipley & Hamos.
While I'm sure the t-shirt would be appreciated around my Astoria hood, I'm also pretty sure it would get my ass beat in 203 at Yankee Stadium, so I will probably save my $95 for some jewelry or, I don't know, rent.
Who knows, maybe Mets fans will need this $125 hoodie at Citi come October (Image/edition01)
