BOSTON, July 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — ’47, a privately held, premium sports lifestyle brand, announces the arrival of their newest licensed apparel and headwear line – ’47 FORWARD.

’47 FORWARD provides the best fit, feel, and function for the active fan and is offered in an array of silhouette options including; tanks, tees, sweatshirts, zip-ups, sweat pants and capris. The Stamina ’47 CLEAN UP cap rounds out the assortment.

Apparel pieces are made from a soft cotton blend fabric that is engineered with moisture-wicking technology that naturally minimizes odor, and are finished with flat seams for comfort and increased strength. Tops were created with rotated shoulder and side seams to provide an anatomically correct fit, and allow for an increased range of motion. Zippered pockets, thumbholes, internal headphone routing, adjustable pant cuffs, amongst others are design highlights of ’47 FORWARD.

“We aimed to create a line to specifically fit the lifestyle of active fans, pieces that not only looked great, but pieces that would keep up with the busy and diverse lives of our consumers. From walking your dog to riding your bike around town, these pieces allow for comfortable movement across a multitude of activities.”
