Hot on the heels of the Made In USA "C-Note" collab with Concepts, New Balance has announced that it will be launching an entire apparel collection for men and women—produced domestically. Based on the popularity of the 990 sneaker, the collection will highlight signature features from New Balance's archive of kicks like "heavy-gauge topstitching and waffle half-moon[s] with mounted label[s]" according to WWD.
In addition to being produced in the U.S., the materials that that makeup the fleece pullover, polyester-twill jacket, and graphic tees are being sourced domestically as well. Didn't get your fix at the American Field pop-up shop? Here's your chance to keep it local. The collection debuts online and in-stores on November 1.
