Christmas Gift Suggestion: Nike Sports Wear – Grand Slam Polo & Gym Hoody

November 23, 2011

I just sent an email blast to our team regarding this season’s Kris Kringle. We also drawn the names of our “baby”, and I am glad to pick a “baby girl”. Admit that it is hard to buy gifts for men. It is perfect timing that Nike gives us reason to smile and enjoy shopping. Check out this new classic yet stylish pieces from Nike Sports Wear.

Grand Slam Polo SRP: Php 1,795

Being the alpha athlete doesn’t mean that your A-game is always about flash, sometimes you want to dial it back while still staying sharp. The Grand Slam Polo is your go-to shirt. Comfort, versatile and cut to fit, the Grand Slam Polo is made from premium pique cotton in sharp tailoring and features an engineered flat-rib vented collar with open-hole knit, clean-finished seams in both slim and standard-fit options, the 

Grand Slam Polo embodies the male trendsetter who wants a classic, comfortable, and 

polished top with iconic Nike style. This cotton polo is available in a variety of colors to match every mood and outfit.

Graphic AW77 Gym FZ Hoody SRP: Php 3,795

One of the most iconic and trusted designs, the Graphic AW77 Gym FZ Hoody is the latest take on the legend, a trusted companion designed to keep you warm, is durable and ready for adventure.

Fully lined, the Graphic AW77 Gym FZ Hoody features a double-layer scuba hood with 

a drawcord for a customized fit and a classic hoody style. The superior French terry 

fabric, a blend of cotton and polyester, is soft and cozy yet tough as nails with a fit that 

holds its shape from the hood and body to cuffs and waistband for a snug, comfortable 

fit. The graphic screenprint at the chest is done in water-based rubber with a clear gloss 

mesh pattern for a modern look and feel. For ease of wear, the full front zipper affords 

easy access to slip on the hoody while the kangaroo pocket provides ample storage and 

modern style.

The origins of this classic dates back to 1977 when Nike’s third employee and Athletics West track club founder created the hoody as a sturdy option for his elite runners to cope in inclement weather: a sturdy sweatshirt with a double-layered hood to keep the rain and cold out. The modern version remixes the classic with a bold look. The print on the chest is inspired by the athletic look of mesh for additional athletic style.

Interesting style and history, yeah? I adore that orange hoody above. Are your Christmas gift list complete? How about your wish list?
