UK brand Soap-Box are known for going that extra mile to turn a product into something special, and their latest release showcases that perfectly. Soap-Box return with two beautiful leather and wool stadium jackets, adding something different to their usual line-up of T-shirts and sweatshirts.
Modeled on the sort of jacket you’re more likely to find in an American college or baseball stadium, the varsity or stadium jacket has become a staple item in any streetwear head’s wardrobe. UK streetwear would be nothing were it not for the blueprints laid out by the US brands past and present, and I must admit, it’s rare that I see a piece like this executed so well on this side of the Atlantic. The Soap-Box Stadium Jacket showcases American inspiration with a British twist – an Italian melton wool body and sleeves, with leather detailing seen on both the elbow patches and around the pockets. Each jacket is individually numbered out of 25 and finished with an embroidered Soap-Box logo on the left breast. It manages to be both detailed yet simple at the same time, with the subtlety of the Navy/Black and Grey/Navy (with touches of deep green) colourways highlighting this perfectly. I’m a massive fan of both colours and it’s great to see a UK brand pulling off such a well designed piece. My only issue is deciding which one I like more.
The Soap-Box Stadium jackets will be available from this Friday (October 8th) from the Soap-Box Online Store. Lifestyle images and detailed product shots follow below.
