Legendary streetwear brand Chalk Line serves up some vintage Fanimation jackets that will bring back memories or create new ones.
Chalk Line is a streetwear company who initially rose to prominence during the mid 90’s. The company’s signature item is what is known as the Fanimation jacket featuring imagery of individual athletes and entertainment icons. These vintage pieces are still sought after and collected to this day worldwide. Historically, there have been licensing agreements with the following organizations; NBA, MLB, NHL, NFL, NCAA, Warner Bro’s, Disney, NASCAR, USA Olympics, and DC Comics. Recently Chalk Line reached an agreement with the NFL Players Association (NFLPA) and they have released some new Fanimation jackets featuring many of the biggest names in the NFL.
Ric Flair aka The Nature Boy was infamous for his flamboyant yet fierce intros and this Ric Flair Black & Blue Retro Entrance Jacket pays homage to one of the most prolific wrestlers of our time with details and colors that were reminiscent of his magnificent ringside robe patterns. It’s kind of significant that Chalk Line chose Ric as a Fanimation subject because just like The Nature Boy, this brand has shown it’s fully capable of a comeback.
