LEMKUS FW 2019 Collection
This year Lemkus introduced their first ever Winter collection, consisting of four pieces. The collection was inspired by the heritage of Jack Lemkus, in relation to sport and the vintage era. Before the store became the cornerstone for sneakers, it was known as a respectable sports store. By introducing this unisex collection they are paying homage to the store's history and culture.
The collection includes a Hoodie, Sweater and Tees. Featured in our editiroial is the Crimson "University" sweater, highlighted by LEMKUS appearing in bold white and underneath appears the MCMXXXV which translates to 1935, the year in which JACK LEMKUS store was established.
