The Wind Up | S20


OUR FIRST CHAPTER IS LOOSELY BASED OFF THE NEGRO LEAGUES FROM THE 1928'S TO THE 1948'S, FOR YEARS I WANTED TO TELL THIS BASEBALL STORY FROM A FRESH PERSPECTIVE. IT WAS LESS ABOUT THE SPORT AND MORE ABOUT THE SPIRIT OF DETERMINATION, LET NOTHING GET IN YOUR WAY, I FOCUSED ON THEIR TRAVELING GAMES CALLED BARNSTORMING. DAY OR NIGHT THESE TEAMS WOULD TRAVEL ACROSS HOSTILE BACK ROADS IN AMERICA .... JUST TO PLAY, HOW DO WE CAPTURE THAT NOBLE GRIT?


I STARTED WITH A DEEP DIVE INTO FABRICS AND GARMENT FIT TO TELL THE STORY.


OUR RIP-STOP IS LIGHT WEIGHT, BUT DURABLE, WE MERGED THE RIP STOP WITH A COMBED COTTON JERSEY WITH A SLIGHT STRETCH, I WAS VERY INSPIRED BY THE STYLE OF THEIR UNIFORMS, BUT I ALSO LOOKED AT THEIR STYLE OFF THE FIELD, THIS WORKED EXTREMELY WELL CREATING THE RIGHT FIT FOR OUR CUT TROUSER.IT GIVES YOU A RANGE OF MOTION WITH A REFINED FIT.
