The Story

In 1953, the city of Baltimore was awarded a new National Football League franchise. The team was nicknamed the Colts, the second pro football club to bear that name in a seven-year period. In 1954, Weeb Ewbank was named the Colts' head coach and he began a steady building program that put his team over .500 for the first time in 1957. The Colts didn't have another losing season for the next 14 years. Powered by a sensational young quarterback, Johnny Unitas, and a strong supporting cast that included such future Pro Football Hall of Famers as Artie Donovan, Gino Marchetti, Raymond Berry, Lenny Moore and Jim Parker, the Colts won NFL championships in both 1958 and 1959 and again in 1968 before making the move to Indianapolis.

Made to be incredibly soft, we crafted these bad boys from a plush poly-cotton blend, including a soft-as-butter "sponge" fleece lining - making it perfect for your commute from bar to couch on those crisp fall Sundays. We finished it off with all the details of a classic hoodie: ribbed cuffs and waistband, kangaroo hand pocket, and white chord drawstring. It's sure to quickly become your go-to essential.
