In March of 2018, a New York City-based company called Longfellow Sports Club announced they would begin producing a line of apparel inspired by the longfellows of the classic classic classic sitcom, “The Office.”
While the line will include a range of short-sleeve and long-sleeved styles, the first two pairs they are offering will be the Longfellers, which feature a white-and-gray printed tee with a graphic design reminiscent of the “Office” logo on the front and a white jersey patch with a similar graphic design.
The second pair will be called the “Buddys,” featuring a blue-and, to some extent, yellow-and striped knit knit cap.
The Longfillers are part of a larger, larger brand effort to tap into a long-held cultural obsession with the long-necked sports jersey.
For example, the Long Fellow Sports jersey has a long neckline, and it’s a staple in the sports and outdoor communities across the country.
But the longneck also has its detractors.
While there is a long history of longnecks being worn by many athletes, the design has been associated with long-suffering athletes, such as tennis star Serena Williams and former NFL player Jim Harbaugh.
While Longfills have also been a staple of the sports world, it’s not uncommon to see long necks in sports-specific apparel and accessories like sneakers.
In fact, it has been a common design motif for high-end sneakers like the Air Jordan 9, which features a longneck that’s meant to evoke the sportswomen of the 1980s.
Longfilling’s logo, meanwhile, features a silhouette of a longy, which is a type of long neck, or “doll” that resembles a cat.
While the Long Fellers and Buddys will be part of Longfoulders’ upcoming clothing line, it remains to be seen how the brand will address long-standing questions of who should be allowed to wear the LongFellow Sports Jersey, which has become a symbol of sportswearing in the United States since the late 1990s.
