Sports meets fashion in an iconic lifestyle collision with the debut of quarterback Russell Wilson’s 3Brand Collection. Fans can be the first to sport the star’s new style while expanding the prospects of youth. 

On Thursday, Aug. 18, athletics gear retailer Lids announced that the Seattle Seahawks quarterback and Super Bowl XLVIII champion Wilson is realizing a life ambition with the new brand.

“I have always dreamed of having my own hat line at Lids. Being able to keep your dreams alive, never giving up and living life with a, ‘Why not you?’ attitude is what the 3Brand signifies.” Wilson said in a statement. “I can’t wait to see everyone wearing them.”

This isn’t the first time that Wilson and his partners launched threads with designs on making a difference by bringing out the best in men. Good Man Brand’s sharp blazers, streamlined sneakers and more feature the motto, “Lead. Inspire. Live.” 

The caps feature Wilson’s signature number ‘3’ logo, stylized and available in three different colored hats. This exclusive collection is one of three drops by Russell Wilson and 3Brand this year. The first drop includes three distinct colorways available in a flat-brimmed, snapback silhouette: black/white, white/black, and black/red. Additional colorways will launch in the coming months.  

“This collection not only offers our customers a way to express the important message of never giving up on dreams but also provide(s) them with a sense of excitement while wearing these caps,” Lawrence Berger, chairman of FanzzLids Holdings, said in a statement. 

In addition to the stylish snapbacks, 5% of sales proceeds will be donated to the Why Not You Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting poverty through education and empowering youth to lead with a, “Why not?” attitude. (Good Man Brand also donates 3% of sales proceeds to the group.) The foundation’s mission is to equip today’s youth with opportunities and skills to become tomorrow’s leaders, achieved through equal education access for all students, as well children’s health and food security initiatives. 

The announcement follows a year that saw Lids add 70 stores during the pandemic and cement an international expansion agreement with the NBA. Lids remains the largest headwear retailer in North America, with over 28 million units sold annually across over 1,200 locations. 

Retailing for $39.99, the premiere collection is available in select Lids locations throughout the country and at Be on the lookout later this year for drops two and three of the exclusive 3Brand and Lids collaboration.

Brooks challenges Vuori with new Luxe Apparel Collection men’s clothing (and women’s clothing!) line
Workout clothing is now more fashionable than ever
Two people walking on the street in Luxe

There has always been a separation between fashion and function, style and getting the job done. When it came to gym clothes, men were often used to simply throwing on a ratty old t-shirt and the same basketball shorts we have always worn. The world is ever-evolving, and the fitness world is beginning to get stylish. Brands are becoming more focused on style and comfort, closing the gap between fashion and function. Vuori has long been the pioneer of the stylish comfort game. But now they have a new competitive adversary on the market.

Brooks has been a mainstay in footwear since the early 1900s when they made bathing shoes. That's right, shoes made to be worn in the rivers, oceans, and anywhere the tender footed wanted to go. They developed shoes across many industries before they took aim at the one that held their passion: running. Decades later, they are one of the leading authorities in all things running, with some of the best shoes money can buy. Their next step is the release of the Luxe Collection, a combination of men's clothing and women's clothing that is just as good on the run as on the couch.

Ditch the blues and grays: This men’s fashion expert wants you to add more color to your wardrobe
Embrace a new color and revitalize your closet and your life
Max Israel of Y.Chroma

When men are young, we try out brighter colors portraying our youth. But as we age, the colors begin to dull, and we tend to drift toward safer neutrals like blue, gray, brown, and the always exciting black and white. Now, don't get us wrong, we love a great blue that is rich and striking or a dark outfit that gives us the evening black-tie look. But when your entire wardrobe looks dull and lifeless, it is time to liven it up with a color palette that draws attention, brings out your inner playfulness, and stands out from the crowd.

That can be challenging for a middle-aged man who has spent his entire life subduing his appearance with dark neutrals. But help is on the way; we got a chance to sit down with Max Israel, founder of Y.Chroma, a menswear brand out of Lisbon that is endeavoring to help men release their inner light with the kind of color that they've been missing out on their entire lives. Let him help you figure out the best way to liven up your closet and life.
