Mitchell & Ness: A Conversation with Peter Capolino, Owner

March 16, 2010

Head over to The Reference Council and read there great in depth feature and interview with Peter Capolino, owner of legendary American sportswear brand Mitchell & Ness based in Philadelphia. Here’s an excerpt below!

“As a nostalgia company, Mitchell & Ness has never been, strictly speaking, about fashion. It has been an expression of one man’s passion for sports, his commitment to sporting history, and an obsession with producing garments the best way possible.

That man is Peter Capolino. He grew up in Mitchell & Ness, following his fathers footsteps, and later transfered his love of sports to a celebration the game of baseball through reproduction jerseys.

These are shirts that remind us of national values. They also explain moments completely devoid of humility. For instance, in 1920 the Cleveland Indians captured the World Series. What did they do in 1921? Just waltzed on to the field everyday of the season with “World Champions” emblazoned on their uniforms.”
