Roots just rereleased their OVO x Calgary ’88 Jacket
Happy belated, Bob Marley! It was the reggae icon’s bday on February 6, but Roots is keeping the party going with a re-release of its OVO x Roots x Calgary Varsity Jacket. Sound like a bizarre collab? Well, it kinda is. That being said, Drake’s OVO Brand is no stranger to collaborations with Canadian winter-wear heavy hitters, so we can say that we aren’t too surprised but we are very excited.
Last year’s drop was focused on the 30th anniversary of the 1988 Calgary Olympics and this bad boy hasn’t veered too far from that aesthetic. If you recognize the coat, you might just be remembering the late, great John Candy rocking it in Cool Runnings while coach of the infamous Jamaican bobsled team, hence the green and yellow colour scheme.
Unfortunately, the jacket is running at around $700 retail, so you might have to crack open the freshly started 2019 piggy bank to get your hands on one.
You can grab the OVO x Roots x Vintage 1988 Calgary Jacket at the Roots location in Chinook Centre, so pick one up and elevate your style game, Calgary!
