The destroyer jacket… what more need we say? And with Lebron as their inspiration for this piece, it is a definite winner in our eyes.
Crafted from 100% recycled wool, the garment features classic varsity jacket styling accented with 3 special insignias that refers back to the the King himself: “Vivat Rex,” or long live the king, is embroidered on the inside of the placket, LeBron’s Lion 6 logo makes an appearance on the left sleeve, and “Virescit Vulnere Virtus” is inscribed on the tag at the lower left body, which translates to “Courage becomes greater through the wound.”
Nice, clean, simple, and more importantly, effective use of color and embroidery through the jacket. Definite stand out piece this Holiday season and if you’re a fan of The King, this is a definite must have in your collection. The LBJ Destroyer Jacket is available at all NSW accounts and Nike stores worldwide.
