Russell Athletic, that vintage all-American sportswear pioneer, recently launched in South Africa and those of you who have travelled to the US will no doubt be familiar with the brand…they pretty much invented the hoodie and sweatshirt over a hundred years ago. During the 1960’s, the ‘Athletic’ division was the largest marketer and manufacturer of athletic apparel and uniforms in the US. Well now Russell Athletic have brought their on-and-off the field apparel to South Africa and to celebrate they are giving away a day worth R20 000 to one lucky person and 3 of his/her mates. I also have a bonus giveaway for you Life is Savage readers below.
