On June 22, 1938, Joe Louis demolished Max Schmeling in their second meeting. As the heavyweight champ, the Brown Bomber already was a superhero to African-Americans. But fighting Hitler’s darling during a time of mounting tensions between the US and Nazi Germany, Louis shouldered the hope of the entire nation, later recalling:
"I knew I had to get Schmeling good. I had my own personal reasons and the whole damned country was depending on me.” 70,000 fans crowded Yankee Stadium to witness Louis avenge his earlier loss and the crowd got what they came to see as Schmeling recounted on his way to the hospital after the fight:
"As we drove through Harlem, there were noisy, dancing crowds. Bands had left the nightclubs and bars and were playing and dancing on the sidewalks and streets. The whole area was filled with celebration, noise, and saxophones, continuously punctuated by the calling of Joe Louis' name.”

I ordered this and their Gray Bruce Lee sweater. Both fit like a glove. Very satisfied with how it feels and how I look
Its rare you find a garment with such street style and elegance that is made with incredible materials. Soft but strong and the cut is snug but comfortable. I hope they slip me a pormo code for a Frazier hoody I am wearing this one out daily!
