The Story

Billy Sullivan Jr., a Boston businessman with a strong sports promotional background, secured an American Football League franchise on November 22, 1959. In keeping with the New England heritage, the nickname "Patriots" was selected by a panel of Boston sportswriters in a contest to name the team. The Boston team was involved in two significant "firsts" in 1960. The Patriots defeated the Buffalo Bills in the first AFL pre-season game on July 30. On September 9, the Patriots lost to the Denver Broncos 13-10 in the first-ever AFL regular-season game.

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.
