Ahead of our exclusive drop with Eric Emanuel, launching on November 22 at 12 PM, we sat down with the designer to get his story. Starting in upstate city of Syracuse, NY, Emanuel's story spans from his early work in hand-producing customized jerseys to his current main successes—including multiple sneaker collaborations and full-on operation in New York City's garment district. From his work with Allen Iverson and Reebok, to his commitment to the simplicity of the iconic basketball short, it's clear that the best is yet to come for Emanuel's eponymous label.
