This weekend saw the opening of Todd Snyder’s first stand-alone shop in the way of a collaboration with Champion dubbed “City Gym.” Along with their debut sportswear collection, the pop-up retail space is stocked with some of Snyder’s favorite sporting goods.

Reclaimed steel lockers and cubbies are lined with watches/bicycles from Detroit’s Shinola, Ebbets Field felted ball caps, Hoosier bats and Leather Head balls. In addition to an exclusive assortment of goods curated by Kaufmann Mercantile, ranging from pocket-size titanium tools to hand-stitched Japanese notebooks.

Todd Snyder and Champion Take Us to the Gym

Todd Snyder

Todd Snyder has been the guy to know lately.

Exhibit A: May’s footwear collaboration with SeaVees, where the man selflessly helped us start the summer off on the right foot.

And now, exhibit B: Snyder’s exclusive new sportswear line with Champion, available online starting today.

Designing the collection in conjunction with Champion’s own design team, Snyder’s goal was to bring modern tailoring to the brand’s classic 1950s gym-issued items. And, well, he seems to have hit that goal spot-on, promptly transporting us back to undergrad with a whole range of team-color-accented, vintage-inspired sweats. Or maybe it’s prep school we’re remembering? Either way, there’s a distinct memory of us going to town on a speed bag in something just like the collection’s signature pocket sweatshirt, and we’re pretty excited for the opportunity to run that back.
