While poking around the hipster haven, American Outfitters, recently (don’t judge me, I was whiling away time between appointments) I spotted this little gem.
A jersey by clothing brand, Stüssy.
And maybe it’s because I have been around BMX so long, but my internal dialogue when I saw this was…”That sure does remind me of something…wait a minute…those classic GHP jerseys!”
Have I told you I’m a BMX nerd?
It’s not so much the colors they use (they’re totally different), it’s the typeface/graphic on the front.
Check out this jersey for comparison sake.
Or check out this version, which I believe is the original iteration, back when Greg Hill first launched GHP.
That being said, Stussy has participated in a number of cool, retro-inspired BMX collabs over the years.
Most notably (at least to the readers of this fair website) is the Stussy & W-Base How I Roll 26-inch cruiser.
I’m intrigued to see if this is the start of even more retro-inspired BMX creations from Stussy.
I’m going to keep on the lookout.
