That's because Russell grew up together with the States. To legitimize the role of streetwear into the urban world, Russell briefly changed few elements of its production line.

A perfect example stands in Pro Cotton, Russell's latest collection based on a material that goes beyond the simple jersey. It's 80% made of cotton, intertwined with fine yarns to improve wearability, while the crossed weave make it tougher. It feels like you're wearing a handmade crewneck, flaunting a modern cut and extremely smooth. The vintage sweatshirts featured in this collection are finished off by few remarkable details, like the chest logo embroidered down the front. Do you like a hoodie with a story to tell?
