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

Doxa’s Sub 200T watch is a new, smaller version of the Classic 300 design
Doxa introduces smaller version of Sub 300
Doxa Sub 200T series

Doxa watches aren't exactly the word on the tip of anyone's tongue when they think of their favorite brands; however, they have developed their own community, and some might dub them a cult following. The brand recently unveiled its latest Doxa watch, the Sub 200T which has sent a lightning strike through the hearts of fans, as it's unmistakably more compact than the iconic 300T and 600T models. The lack of smaller options has always been a common complaint among fans of the brand, and with consumer behavior veering more and more in this direction, it's no surprise that the latest iteration is just 39mm. The iconic design of the Classic 300 has been shrunk down to something more compact, sleek, and contemporary.
The new Doxa Sub 200T has a color for every taste

On top of that, the kaleidoscope of color options available from Doxa watches will surely satisfy every taste, from those who like bright and sporty models to those who prefer something a little more classic and subdued. The dial features a sunray-finished design with a luminous sunburst effect, and it comes with two strap options: a stainless steel bracelet with a "beads of rice" design and an FKM rubber strap that comes with folding clasps and ratcheting wetsuit extensions.

Hublot Big Bang in Glacier Blue

The newest addition to the Hublot MP-11 collection is a formidable presence, measuring a whopping 45mm in diameter and 14.4mm in thickness, so you'll need some major confidence if you want to sport this beast on your wrist. The inaugural Sapphire Big Bang was introduced in 2016 and since then the brand has delighted fans with an array of color iterations, from other sapphire colors to purple and orange. Now, Glacier Blue has been introduced, just in time to keep you cool this summer (in attitude, not temperature, unfortunately.)
Hublot: The Big Bang MP-11 in Glacier Blue

This Big Bang MP-11 features a 14-day power reserve, which is achieved through seven series-coupled barrels arranged in a horizontal configuration, and all of that can be viewed by the wearer. The truly vibrant Glacier Blue (seriously, the blue is so bright you'll feel like you're about to start seeing your breath) is made with a fresh chemical composition but still shares the same properties as sapphire: luminous, and able to withstand scratches.
Technical specifications
This Hublot watch will leave you completely mesmerized for several hours before you even think about the technical specifications, though there are some exceptional details to go over. Inside this MP-11 is the HUB9011 Manufacture manual-winding skeleton power reserve movement. As we mentioned above, there are seven series-coupled barrels, but they've been arranged in a coaxial and vertical configuration so the watch is able to maintain a super slim profile of just 10.9mm. All tied together like a bow on top is the blue transparent structured rubber strap with a titanium deployant buckle clasp.
