Developing good mechanics all begins at the balance point. This is probably one of the most poorly misunderstood aspects of the mechanics. Some pitching “experts” teach pitchers to reach a balance point at the peak of their leg lift. This is technique is absolutely detrimental to velocity, and no high velocity MLB pitcher reaches this so-called point of balance in their delivery. Professional pitchers are balanced throughout their delivery, but most importantly, they are moving towards the plate at each state of their mechanics. The traditional balance point idea is that pitchers should be perpendicular with their weight shifted over the drive leg. This technique is an absolute velocity killer.
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.
