412 x 47’ Brand x Black Fives (M.A.A.) June/2015
We had the opportunity to collaborate with the Black Fives and 47Brand alongside the likes of Hall of Fame and other independent retailer heavyweights to represent Pittsburgh. Namely, The Monticello Athletic Association.
Being involved and watching this multi-city, coast to coast collaboration take shape will not be forgotten. We came into the game being inspired by Jeff Staple. 9 years later, we still are. Jeff: thank you for choosing us as one of your creative partners for this collaborative collection.
Stalwarts of sports apparel ’47 have teamed up with non-profit organization Black Fives Foundation for a debut collection that commemorates and honors basketball’s early African-American pioneers. An array of headwear, apparel and pennants, emblazoned with historically accurate logos and designs of the original Black Five Era teams, celebrates the integration of African Americans into the previously divided National Basketball Association in 1950. Both enterprises are synonymous with the history of American sport and believe that this debut collection will not only combine history and fashion to express an untold story, but also speak to a youthful audience about an important genre of basketball history. The collection leaves room for future expansion into the realms of accessories and vintage jerseys, but for now check out the first drop above and find out more over at ’47′s Instagram.
We had an end goal of our team's multi-sport star, Cumberland Posey, to be introduced in both the Baseball (Homestead Grays) and the Basketball Hall of Fame. This feat recently came to fruition in March/2016.
