Designer baseball duds, for a cause
Beer, hot dogs and a gorgeous summer night under the lights: What’s not to love about America’s pastime? Well, sometimes finding something appropriate (and cute) to wear to the game.
Sure, you could pull out the shapeless stadium T-shirt, but it’s obviously not the most body flattering--or remotely interesting--option. Now Mets fans will have the advantage in the chic-spectator department, thanks to an exciting new capsule collection: CFDA for the Mets.
The Council of Fashion Designers of America has partnered with the team on a limited-edition line of merchandise to celebrate both groups’ 50th anniversaries (and benefit their nonprofit educational, social and athletic initiatives). A vintage-looking mascot baseball tee from Shipley & Halmos ($95), a slim track jacket from Billy Reid ($125) and striped tanks from Loomstate ($60) are among the products featured in the deal, but we call dibs on the distressed henley from Yigal Azrouël ($95).
On sale today, all items will be available at Citi Field and on Edition01.com. Although, it does beg the question: Who’s up for a Yankees makeover?
