Colin Ramsey: ‘Early in the summer of 1988, I found a dark blue Champion sweatshirt in the gutter in front of my rented house on Martha’s Vineyard. I picked it up, and, seeing it was in decent shape, took it inside and washed it. I wore it frequently the rest of that summer, and still wear it occasionally, even today. Nevertheless, I wouldn’t buy my clothing at Walgreens.’
