Luxury Sports Apparel: The authentic professional, throwback sports jerseys and warm-up suits that pop up on professional athletes, film and music stars worldwide all have one thing in common. Whether it is MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL, the Negro League, or college sports, those retro-replica sports threads are likely to be coming from the gurus of throwbacks, the Mitchell & Ness.

Adding to their offerings, Mitchell & Ness recently introduced its own signature line of athletic sportswear. The M&N collection includes hoodies, shirts, shorts, t-shirts, warm-up pants and tops. Each piece offers the same quality standards that have made the firm one of the most touted manufacturers of licensed, vintage team sportswear worldwide.

The company, which began in 1904, produced the first uniform worn by the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles in 1933, and entered the MLB in 1938, manufacturing the uniform of the Philadelphia Athletics baseball team. By the 1950s, Mitchell & Ness produced sports uniforms for all levels of athletic competition.

Today it makes the official uniform for Jon Bon Jovi's Arena Football League entry, the Philadelphia Soul. Its exclusively licensed lines include Turn Back the Clock (MLB), Throwback Collection of the NFL, Vintage Hockey, NBA Hardwood Classics, Cooperstown Collection, Negro League apparel, and college sports.

Mitchell & Ness has a legion of fans beyond "Bling World," as hardcore sports fans seeking authentic replicas of their favorite teams also have uncovered the retro M&N collections. Since 2001, sales have increased tenfold. The firm has been featured on HBO's Real Sports, Time and People Magazines and NBC's Nightly News.

A list of licensed retailers and online shopping options are available at M&N's colorful website.
