The Legacy Of The adidas California T-Shirt Lives On
Simple styles like the adidas California T-shirt have been about for decades bringing with it a whole legacy of 3 stripes nostalgia.
There aren’t many brands that can claim to have lived through different era’s, different styles of music and different subcultures. Not to mention a simple t-shirt. Originally released in the late 70’s when sportswear was sweeping the nation and punk had become mainstream the classic adidas style became an instant hit. Still a popular style in the 80’s the California really made its mark during the Britpop heydays of the 90’s as seen on the likes of the Gallagher brothers and Blur’s Damon Albarn. 90’s Britpop has become a haven for all things 3 stripes and the California’s legacy lives on with the popular 3 stripes classic now bigger than ever before.
