In the hands of iconic Philadelphia sports apparel brand Mitchell & Ness, the NBA’s 75th season is getting flossy. This not only means numerous celebrations throughout the season, but we also get to see new, metallic versions of Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, and other legendary NBA player jerseys.

Throughout the 2021-2022 NBA regular season and the NBA Playoffs, Mitchell & Ness will be releasing a massive clothing collection. The first drop will be plunged in nostalgia, silver, platinum, gold, and rose gold uniforms in futuristic iridescent finishes. With apparel drops throughout the NBA’s diamond season, this is only the start for the classic gear creator this season.

“As we celebrate the NBA’s 75th Anniversary season, our collaboration with Mitchell & Ness helps bring the game’s history to life and pays tribute to NBA players past and present,” NBA global partnership senior vice president Lisa Piken Koper said in a statement. “Fueled by nostalgia, the collection serves as a reminder of the iconic players and teams who have laid the foundation for the NBA.”

The metallic-hued swingman collection enshrines basketball’s most iconic players in the era that they played. An ode to the NBA’s 25th anniversary, for example, the silver collection will include the greatest players from the league’s 1946 inception. In 1996, the NBA celebrated its golden anniversary with the 50 Greatest Players of All-Time. Hence, many of these fabled stars’ uniforms will appear in the gold and rose gold swingman collection. And the platinum collection will sport the league’s most influential modern players.

“We’re going all-out to celebrate 75 years of excellence for one of our greatest partners,” Mitchell & Ness CEO Kevin Wulff said in a statement. “It is an honor to be able to play an integral role in reciting the NBA’s history through product, as well as looking into the future with sustainable materials and distinctive designs.”

This green focus launches a new company initiative, Consciously Classic, which focuses on integrating renewable and eco-friendly materials in Mitchell & Ness textiles.

In addition, the NBA All-Star game’s 2022 return to Cleveland, Ohio in February will bring the sport’s most star-studded weekend to the Forest City for the first time in twenty-five years. Celebrating these round ball ties to the community, Mitchell & Ness collaborated with influential local boutiques across the U.S. for its Hometown series. This includes Bodega in Boston and Los Angeles, Major in Washington DC, Lapstone & Hammer in Philadelphia, MODA3 in Milwaukee, and Xhibition in Cleveland. Collections will be launching throughout 2022 exclusively at partner retailers, Mitchell & Ness flagship locations in Philadelphia, and the company’s website.

Keep an eye on your calendars — 75th Anniversary jerseys, jackets, shorts, headwear, hoodies, tees, and more will begin releasing online on December. 23. And Mitchell & Ness will celebrate the 71st installment of the NBA All-Star game with product drops throughout February. Prices range from $32 to $400 at

Mitchell & Ness teamed up with Miller Lite on throwback gear to help you look like your dad
We love this Mitchell & Ness collection for Miller Lite
mitchell and ness miller lite athletic wear collaboration x  amp club collection full suit 3


It seems everyone loves the '80s, and honestly, what's not to love? The simpler times, the yuppies, MTV, and, of course, the fashion. Mitchell & Ness Nostalgia Co., a renowned seller of historically accurate vintage sports apparel, is capitalizing on that throwback trend with another partnership with Miller Lite. Together, they have launched a limited-edition collection that "gives a fresh take on the nostalgia of the original Athletic Club line" that originated in that decade. That's right! Now you can own vintage-inspired crew necks, sweatpants, t-shirts, windbreakers, and hats that will take you all the way back to that classic '80s vibe.
What's in the collection?
Pieces from the collection range from $35 to $100, according to a press release,  made with "premium fabrics, providing high-quality pieces that are built to last." This includes a classic crewneck sweatshirt that is unisex and comes with ribbed side panels for maximum stretch, ribbing at the cuffs for a truly '80s look, and the Miller Lite Athletic Club emblem on the front for $80. Also in the collection are the snapback hat in navy ($35), a navy windbreaker (because you can't have a throwback line without a windbreaker) for $100, sweats, and a 100% polyester unisex satin navy jacket ($95) to cap off the look. It can't get much more '80s than this.

This incredible chronograph watch just debuted, and you’re going to love it
This luxury watch from Bravur is a stunner
Bravur La Crosa Rosa III

If you're a fan of luxury watches, you may want to take a deep breath before you continue. Bravur, the Swedish watchmaker and cycling enthusiast, just dropped their newest model, The La Corsa Rosa model III, and it's as stunning as you'd come to expect from the manufacturer. The founders, with all their watches, pay homage to The Grand Tour—La Corsa Rosa (nickname for Giro d’Italia), La Grande Boucle (referring to the Tour de France), and La Vuelta (or Vuelta a España)—three of the biggest, most historic bike races in the world. Each watch is hand built in Båstad, Sweden, and the detail and style are nothing short of perfection.

The La Corsa Rosa model III
The new model was inspired by the Giro d'Italia, which is the first Grand Tour of the year. It has a case diameter of 38.2 mm, both beautiful and weighted thoughtfully. The case, made from 316L stainless steel, has been treated with a matte black ceramic coating. The sandwich dial has gorgeous pink accents, an homage to the leader's jersey of the race. Additionally, the tricolor on the sub-dial is a reference to the blue climber's jersey and the purple sprinter's jersey, worn by the rider with the most points in the mountains and sprinters classification.
