Russell Athletic has a rich legacy in producing sweatshirts for schools, colleges and the American pro sports world ever since inventing the world’s first sweatshirt back in the 1930s. It was produced in Pro Cotton - a fabric exclusive to the brand. Despite imitations, it has never been beaten for comfort and performance.

For Autumn/Winter 2018, Russell Athletic celebrates this milestone with the re-launch of sweatshirts in Pro Cotton.

This premium collection has been constructed using authentic, original Pro Cotton, a fabric made up of 80% Cotton, together with a mix of finer combed yarns for superior comfort. Luxurious to touch, substantial to wear and with a bulky ‘handmade’ feel, these Pro Cotton sweatshirts feature an easy going, ergonomic cut and vintage details such as a neat crew neck with a classic ribbed V patch and bold embroidered logo.

This new Pro Cotton line incorporates the fabric’s tried and tested DNA into a modern silhouette, resulting in the ultimate sweatshirt for fall and winter days.
