Back in 2018 BAPE linked up with Mitchell & Ness for a stunning NBA Collection. Now the two imprints are back at it, this time around taking their talents to the baseball diamond. The two brands have paired up once again to showcase a new MLB capsule collection. The capsule takes a stylish look at four Major League Baseball teams, offering a streetwear approach to their classic apparel. The range features the New York Yankees and the Los Angeles Angels from the American League, and the New York Mets and Los Angeles Dodgers from the National League.
The cities were selected as a celebration of the city’s BAPE store communities. The range comes comprised of logo-heavy varsity jackets, baseball jerseys, and a T-shirt. The pieces feature an all-over BAPE print, which finds the team emblems placed as either chest or centered designs. The Mets, Dodgers, and Angels varsity jackets land with additional BAPE insignias on the back. There is also a standalone Yankees edition that only utilizes the BAPE head on the right chest.
However, the Yankees, Mets and Dodgers button down baseball jerseys and the singular Angels v-neck T-shirt feature BAPE’s founding year, using ‘93 as its jersey number. This eye-catching collection is a fitting way to end the MLB season, a great way to showcase your squad as the playoffs get into full swing. The BAPE x Mitchell & Ness MLB collection was pre-released this weekend, though it will be found globally at A BATHING APE locations, US.BAPE.COM, and BAPE.COM on October 5th.
Take a closer look at the bold new collection in the images below and pick up your favorite pieces asap. Keep it locked here to The Culture Curators for more style and streetwear coming soon.
