Le Coq Sportif ● Padded ACF Fiorentina zipper jacket


I grew up as a hip hop fan, where everything “non skateboarding” related to sports was Yankees and Dodgers. At a point in my adult age I realized that these were all projections of a far away culture and no matter how many caps I wore with LA or NY embroidered, I remained what I am: an Italian. This didn’t change much my looks but my perspective. I can look with a different eye at a brilliant item like this one that my friend Shaki T is wearing.

This Le Coq Sportif Padded ACF Fiorentina zipper jacket belongs to the part of the collection dedicated to Florence football team, being this brand its official sponsor. A mid season jacket or a padded zipper fleece? I can’t really tell but one thing is sure: its no frills style has my approval. The timeless blend of heather grey and black is just the starting point to discover the details of this garment. You have the purple logo of the team on the shoulder to match its satin interior, which is smooth and pleasant to touch. A little ribbon that reminds the other one that we saw on that other item by this brand, the Joupro sweat, is close to the pocket. The difference is that here the French flag gets the purple remake for obvious reasons. Another finesse is that stripes are only on collar and cuffs but not on the hem.
