King Apparel drop a brand new product just before Christmas with the MVP, a black, Melton Wool varsity jacket with diamond quilted interior lining. The images also give a sneak peak of a super exclusive King product coming in 2011, the Black Label Starter snapback.
The clean looking varsity features tonal chenille lettering and white raglan piping on the chest. The MVP also features black leather trimmed pockets and black/white ribbing on the collar/cuffs/waist. Limited to just 200 pieces, the jacket is one of the better attempts at the classic American varsity I’ve seen this season – simplicity is key, and it works well with a plain white tee and chinos as shown. The ‘King’ Starter snapback is a play on the Los Angeles Kings NHL team hat, popularised by N.W.A and a streetwear standard in its own right. Look out for more news on it, and the Starter Black Label project soon, in which King is the only UK brand to feature.
The MVP Varsity Jacket is available now, online from King Apparel for £85.
