People are quick to forget that blazers were once called a ‘sports jacket’ and now the sports luxe trend has arrived, designers such as Lanvin have adapted accordingly. Lanvin have used lightweight materials, with shortened styles in order to create a jacket that seamlessly fits into sports luxe. It is a smart, yet contemporary look, but take sports luxe towards luxury. That is not to say that you can’t look smart with a hoodie, or a baseball jacket, as many others will take the comfort route. Use the hoodie, or jumper from any collection of mens tracksuits and take advantage of the fitted style, as sports luxe is a huge experiment. Casual can still look smart, so take advantage of the different brands and styles that you have. Look at brands such as Good For Nothing, Gibson London, Topman and many more to see a variety of casual and smart jackets. These are only the foundations of a sports luxe outfit, so once you have these fundamentals you can adapt it in any which way you’d like.
Sweatpants or Joggers, No matter what you call them, they are one of these foundations of a sports luxe outfit. It can be entirely casual, or it can be a pair of joggers that have been modified to have a huge resemblance to trousers. Designers have now began using lightweight and fitted materials to mirror trouser images in order to take them away from traditional cuffed designs. If joggers, or sweatpants aren’t your cup of tea, then you can use casual pairs of slim jeans, as the whole sports luxe trend is based on comfort and luxury. There are a host of different styles you could use for joggers, as high-street brands such as Topman, River Island have created a various number of fitted sweat pant styles. Experiment with them, as you will not entirely comfortable unless you find something that truly suits you.
If you are able to locate your off-speed consistently, then this is a great opportunity to throw a changeup, slider, or curveball. By doing so, this will keep the batter off-balance and guessing. 0-1 changeups are excellent because the batter thinks you are throwing a meat fastball, but instead its 6-10 mph slower and sharply breaking downward. The result? The batter will probably swing over the top of the ball or will be way out in front of the pitch. You can have a similar result by throwing a sharp breaking slider or cutter that starts down the middle of the plate, and breaks away toward the outer half.
