roughly every 4 years i get inspired again by my sporting roots & i go on the hunt for (mostly australian) official olympic wear. 1 of many welcomed discoveries was this olympic line of 80's sweats by adidas. classic kicks nyc brought this pic to my attention which featured the standout among the line plus 2 i had never seen in the last 2 on top left. (check the union jack-ish 2nd from end!) now the sapporo '72 is pretty sick but wearing white sweats is asking for trouble. which is your fave?
stockholm 1956/helsinki 1952 olympic sweatshirt
made in taiwan circa 1980's
(28" pit to pit, 27" collar to waist)
now the standout to me was always this fresh black stockholm/helsinki number. the rest of the line are suitable winter olympiad & i assumed stockholm also to be until my stockholm homes protested his city never to have hosted said games. well the equestrian events started today in london however in 56 the melbourne games could not host the equine schedule due to quarantine issues, & as such were held in sweden some months earlier.
so i stock(holm)ed up on several of this adi heat b4 some rapper wore it in some video blah blah blah. so here we are in large & in superb condition. there is minimal fraying to the embroidered rings & no other flaws. they do characteristically fit wide & short however so see if you measure up to the heights of this.
