Mitchell & Ness has undoubtedly been a staple in streetwear culture for decades, being the perfect connector between Sport and Fashion
The History of Mitchell & Ness
In 1904, Frank P. Mitchell, a former wrestling and tennis champ, partnered with , Charles M. Ness, to form a sporting goods store in Philadelphia.
While they initially specialized items a person needed to play sports—like rackets and clubs—by 1925 they found themselves in the business of outfitting local high school, college, and semi-professional teams with uniforms.
Eight years later, the company received their first big break when they were selected by the newly formed Philadelphia Eagles to be their outfitter.
After penetrating the NFL market, Mitchell & Ness continued their success in the professional realm by expanding into major league baseball, providing the uniforms for the Philadelphia Athletics in 1938 and the Philadelphia Phillies.
One of their first big breaks was when Big Boi, from legendary rap group OutKast was featured wearing an Atlanta Braves Mitchell & Ness Jersey, in their video clip “Skew it on the Bar-B".
Since that big break in 1998, Mitchell & Ness has become a staple in rap culture fashion, with the likes of Roddy Rich, DaBaby, Lil Mosey, Blueface, Lil Pump, Trippie Redd all rocking the iconic Mitchell & Ness jersey.
