The Iconic Jersey: Baseball x Fashion explores the baseball jersey as an entry point into 170 years of baseball uniforms. Featuring over thirty-five historic and contemporary jerseys and baseball-inspired fashion, this catalogue traces the development, experimentation, and dissemination of the iconic American-style baseball shirt in the sport, on the runway, and in everyday life. This groundbreaking volume—the first solely devoted to the baseball jersey in an artistic context—examines wider sociological issues: why do we care about so much about sports attire, and what do such clothes mean to us and the wider world?
