Oregon Ducks’ Spring Game Uniforms Honor The Troops


the University of Oregon. Better known as the Ducks, The University of Oregon took to the field on Saturday for their annual Spring Football Game, once again wearing uniforms that honor the men and women who serve our country.

For the past four years, Nike and the University of Oregon have partnered to create a custom-designed uniform for the team’s final Spring scrimmage. This year, both the home and away uniforms have unique details including new nameplates, insignias and patches that tell stories of support and honor. Following the scrimmage, Oregon football players will present their specially made jerseys to approximately 100 uniformed men and women representing all branches of the military.

Innovations include Nike Chain Maille Mesh technology, which is incorporated into the back and under the arms for exceptional ventilation and durability. Nike Flywire technology is integrated into the neckline for reduced weight and better lockdown fit over pads; increased sleeve articulation provides better range of motion; and all-over four-way stretch fabrication provides a streamlined shrink-wrap fit.

Noot Seear Coveteured


Model/ actress/ and brand ambassador for Frends, Noot Seear is photographed from inside her home for an interview with The Coveteur. The intimate photographs highlight Noot’s nonchalant style and reveal her fixation with all things vintage; two key design elements that Mage took into account when creating the aesthetic for Frends’ newly launched women’s collection. See the entire photo gallery, here. ” The idea of the women’s line was to look like jewelry so they would be functional but also stylish ‘fashion headphones’. My inspiration comes from my experience of working for years in the fashion industry, from my love of music, my interaction with my friends that are artists, and my desire for a pair of cool headphones because I was frustrated with the options out there.” “I met [snowboarder] Keir Dillon one night at a dinner where we had mutual friends. We really hit it off and when he told me about this idea of making his own headphones. The
