Hamilton and Hare, the men’s underwear brand (and now leisurewear brand) inspired by the original boxing short have collaborated with boxing legend Joe Calzaghe- the man who retired with the longest continual time as world champion of any active fighter.
The capsule sportswear collection which will debut end of April 2016 and be available from Selfridges, the Hamilton and Hare website and the brands’ new flagship store at Chiltern Street in London.
With boxing at the core of the brand, partnering with Joe Calzaghe is a wise choice for Hamilton and Hare with the Welshman almost embodying their masculine aesthetic and clean design. This, the brands’ first brand collaboration sees Calzaghe’s story weaved into the products by referencing his superstitions in the ring with their designs and his ‘black only’ uniform being the lead colour.
Each item is made using premium natural cotton and ‘Spacer’ fabric with double faced construction featuring two layers of premium cotton jersey sweat fabric and a grid interlock between the two to create an air bubble which regulates temperature; cooler when active, balancing temperature during recovery and providing warmth when inactive in leisure time. It also prevents creasing and ensures a ‘new look’ finish before and after a workout.
Prices for the new collection start at £50 with key pieces: Sleeveless Sweat £125, Mid Zip Hooded Sweat £175, Box Sweat Short £125 and Workout Overlock Tee £50. Our thoughts; invest now- Hamilton and Hare and have created a comfy yet stylish leisurewear collection to be worn at the gym or equally as casualwear in an evening or during a lazy weekend.
