    I’m from the united states and I have a couple Champion sweatshirts, pairs of athletic shorts and moisture wicking shirts (all really good stuff), and didn’t know they made underwear… so i’m not sure where you got your information about what they’re known for over here…

    Yeah I live in America too and I have a couple of Champion basketball jerseys, I had no clue they made underwear either.

  3. Todd says:

    Yeah…never encountered a woman wearing champion panties and can’t say I’ve ever had a pair myself, maybe a sweatshirt or two, nice sweatpants as well. But regardless, nice kit, the logo looks trash though.

    I find it hilarious that an English Premier League team will wear a Champion shirt. Maybe next year Wigan can strike a deal with L.A. Gear.
