Random Acts Of Vintage {CUA Men's Basketball}


Since it's invention in 1891 by Dr. James Naismith , an instructor at the YMCA (shown above with the 1899 University of Kansas basketball team), basketball has been a popular pass time in our culture.  First played at YMCA's across the country, it fast became popular at colleges and universities as well.

I had the opportunity to attend a game this weekend at the Catholic University of America in Washington DC, and it was there that I spotted this random act of vintage. 

It seems that someone discovered a supply of warm up uniforms from the 1970's in storage, had them cleaned, and now the entire team wears them onto the court of every home game. 





Such a fun way to pay tribute to an earlier team!

I'll be keeping my eyes open for other random acts of vintage while I'm out and about.  As wearing vintage is more popular than ever before, it would be a fun feature here on the blog!

I hope that your weekend was wonderful, friends, and that the upcoming week is a happy and productive one.

xoxo, Anita

  2. How fun, looks like you had a great weekend!
    That is wonderful, both for the fact that someone designed a uniform that looks like a cross between prison stripes and candy cane, and that the team is willing to wear them. Very cool.

  3. What brilliant outfits. I much prefer vintage sportswear to the logo-emblazoned lycra monstrosities around today. Watching modern cricket hurts my eyes! x
