Georgia football head coach Kirby Smart wore a sweatshirt in his Monday press conference that has officially taken the internet by storm. What started as a harmless tweet about how stylish Smart looked turned into an all-out hunt to find where he got this sweatshirt.
This sweatshirt has a vintage look to it, but there was something about it that was flawless. It was clean and different, which immediately made it desirable. The tweet gained traction, and everyone wanted to know where Smart got this sweatshirt. I had no clue that this harmless screenshot of his press conference would turn into the entire Georgia fan base trying to find a sweatshirt that doesn’t seem to exist.
Where did Smart get this hot ticket item? Is it new? Is it truly a vintage piece that is not available? These are the questions we have. Nike, Georgia fans need this sweatshirt, and it’s time to make it happen.
Georgia football head coach Kirby Smart has the most desired fashion piece
After an extensive shirt and letting down so many people who also wanted to buy the sweatshirt, it was evident — it did not exist on the main merchandise websites. The University of Georgia bookstore didn’t have it. Fanatics had similar items, but it was not this desired sweatshirt. Red Zone and Alumni Hall didn’t have the item. Everywhere I looked, I got more disappointed. When I finally accepted it wasn’t an option, someone posted a link with what looked like this epic clothing item.
As the day went on, others tweeted about this sweatshirt, and someone found a website that allegedly had the infamous item on it. However, was it truly the item we all want, or is it fake? I put my Sherlock Holmes hat on and dug deep into the site that seemed to be the only place it existed.
It was fake because this company printed the “Georgia football and Nike swoosh ” on a Gideon sweatshirt. Who does that and tricks Georgia fans? Who knows, but that site is not the place to buy it. Don’t succumb to the pressure to get this fake printed Nike sweatshirt.
We knew it was fake because it had options for t-shirts, tank tops, and all the clothing items of the same design. It was not the item wanted. Instead, it was a bad imitation. There is no way that Smart would wear a fake Nike sweatshirt, and because of that, it makes the item that much more desirable. Does he really have a custom item that only he will ever have, or is this hitting the shelves soon?
What would make this even funnier is that this sweatshirt came out years ago before vintage sweatshirts were cool, and they discontinued it. Even if it is special, the amount of desire it got, Nike should make some things happen because it would sell out in a day. Leave it up to Smart to be a fashion icon and trendsetter.
This simple sweatshirt is the most desired item in Athens outside of winning back-to-back national championships. Who knows, the Dawg Nation may have just begun the campaign to get this item on the market, and we hope it happens so we can be one of the first to buy and look as cool as Smart did wearing it in his press conference.
