Members of the Australian community should by now be familiar with Saint Side. An echoing name in the scene the crew which was originally established in the North West Melbourne suburb of St. Albans have built their solid reputation through outstanding products, strong sense of community and unparalleled shopping experience through both their Melbourne CBD Boutique (2/11-15 McKillop St, Melbourne VIC 3000) and St. Albans Workshop (22 John St, Melbourne VIC 3021).
Recently, Saint Side have been keeping up with the constantly expanding demand for Saint Side merchandise with an array of winter garments to keep you warm and dry during these colder months. After the success of their MA-1 and Rangeman Jacket they’ve released 2 jerseys paying homage to local AFL clubs the Footscray Bulldogs and Richmond Tigers and transferred it all onto a hockey styled mesh jersey. They’ve gone all out with the detail and rebranding on these and we’re big fans. Don’t expect these to last long, available now for an easy $120 HERE.
Mark from Saint Side has always been a big supporter of us here at THEXCHNG and had the following to say about the release;
We wanted a Jersey mash up. Taking vintage logos from Footscray Bulldogs, and Richmond Tigers, and then pairing them with teams like the New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins. The idea was to make it wearable daily, or to wear over a hoody to the game, something that you won’t take off when going for a drink later, hence the ‘Saint Side’ headline rather than Bulldogs or Tigers. They’re a micro mesh jersey, huge front patch, number patches on each arm and large on rear, heaps of embroidery including the Saint Side Starter logo rip on the rear neck, with printed size tag and ‘player name’ on the hip.
