For those who may not know, the original Packer store was located in Yonkers, NY and proudly served the community there since 1907 before moving across the bridge into New Jersey in the mid 2000’s. Always one to embrace our heritage, the Ashburton Ave neighborhood that we used to call home made for the perfect backdrop to showcase our latest project. And who better to model it than one of the shop’s most loyal longtime customers in Yonkers’ own, Jadakiss, who has been a friend of the store since childhood.
The Mitchell & Ness Packer Varsity P Warm Up Jacket pays homage to our New York roots and an undying love for NYC basketball with a classic athletic look in an unmistakably New York color scheme. Built off of the iconic 1996-97 NY Knicks authentic nylon warm-up, the Packer version features a felt Varsity P logo on the chest with embroidered branding on the sleeve and a felt “League Champs” basketball patch on the right arm.
Look for the jacket to release 12 noon EST on Tuesday, April 26th, in-store at both shop locations and online at PackerShoes.com for a retail price of $150.
