KENTUCKY HOOPS COACH JOHN CALIPARI LAUNCHES “REFUSE TO LOSE” CLOTHING LINE

Athlete clothing lines are numerous, as current and former pros from a variety of sports have ventured into the fashion world. They’ve transitioned from the field, the court and the ice, to the design room, becoming famous for their style in addition to their sport. The latest sports figure to try his hand at fashion design can typically be found on the sidelines instead. University of Kentucky hoops coach, John Calipari, has launched a clothing range of his own. Calipari first announced his new apparel collection via twitter:

 

 

Calipari partnered with ST Brands on the line, which has been dubbed “Refuse to Lose.” The collection features short sleeve tees, long sleeve tees and polos, with additional styles to come. Thus far, the casual clothing is offered in black, white, gray and Kentucky blue hues. Prices range from $19.99 to $29.99.

According to CoachCal.com:

Coach Cal’s line is designed for athletes, businessmen and -women, and fans everywhere. Made with a blended material that quickly wicks away sweat, everything in the Coach John Calipari Refuse to Lose Signature Series is geared towards comfort and breathability under high-performance use.

Each section of clothing is constructed with four water-directing channels to wick away sweat. A power capillary effect ensures rapid absorption of sweat for quick drying. Thanks to the cross-sectional structure, the area of fiber in direct contact with the skin is relatively small, making the fabric dry, lightweight and smooth to the touch.

 One of the driving forces behind the clothing line is to raise money for charity. Partial proceeds from all sales will go the John Calipari Foundation.

The Coach John Calipari Refuse to Lose Signature Series is currently available here. The gear is also available in select retailers around the Lexington area, including Walmart, Kroger, the University of Kentucky Book Store, Kennedy Book Store and Rupp Arena. Check it out below:

Cal Men’s Tone on Tone T-Shirt ($19.99)

Cal Women’s Short Sleeve V-Neck W/ Contrast Stitch ($19.99)

Cal Men’s Short Sleeve Polo W/ Contrast Stitch ($24.99)
