LONDON, ENGLAND, October 25, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Major League Baseball jerseys are picking up popularity at a rapid rate, for a number of reasons. Aside from the growing number of US sports fans on European shores, baseball jerseys offer their wearers an American chic which translates itself easily into the modern day wardrobe. Soccer jerseys have been and gone as a fashion item; now is the time for the baseball jersey - often a lighter and more comfortable fit - to take centre stage, as the modern man uses them to add a sporty element to his wardrobe.
As with many trends, celebrities seem to be the tastemakers in this rise of the MLB jerseys, and there have been many recent examples of well-known figures strutting their stuff in the franchise uniform of their choice.
He's one of the most talented film stars to grace Hollywood in recent years, a female heart throb, and is also a massive Red Sox fan: Boston's own Matt Damon is no stranger to an MLB jersey, and can often be seen proudly sporting the colours of his home city, typically opting for the home version (https://www.majesticathletic.eu/en/replica/boston-red-sox-replica-jersey-home) of the uniform.
The rapper Ludacris, also known as Christopher Bridges, has been known to wear the baggier version of the Miami Marlins jersey, proving that baseball has what it takes to compete with basketball on the 'street' front. Miami will forever be recognised as a beach side city, so wearing their jersey can give a nod that you are a chilled out character with a sunny disposition.
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis
In October last year, moments before Game 4 of the MLB NLCS featuring the Chicago Cubs and the Los Angeles Dodgers, Ashton Kutcher and wife Mila Kunis walked on field to announce the starting lineup for the Dodgers.
While Kutcher has been known to sport Cubs gear, the 38-year-old repped for the home team, as he and Kunis, who is pregnant with the couple's second child, matched head to toe in Dodgers attire (https://www.majesticathletic.eu/en/replica/los-angeles-dodgers-replica-jersey-home).
Sticking with the rap game, Wiz Khalifa, one of the most successful artists in recent years, has been spotted wearing the distinctive black and yellow of the Pittsburgh Pirates (https://www.majesticathletic.eu/en/category/3352/pittsburgh-pirates). Stateside, rappers are fiercely proud of the area which they come from, and baseball jerseys allow them to don their city colours with pride - whether or not they are big fans of baseball!
He might be a legendary basketball player, but Allen Iverson can occasionally be seen showing his loyalty to the Baltimore Orioles (https://www.majesticathletic.eu/en/category/3359/baltimore-orioles) by wearing the classic home jersey. It's typical of sports stars to show their passion for other games, and Iverson certainly cannot be accused of shying away from displaying his allegiance.
A huge influencer with Twitter-using millennials, Kim Kardashian has been spotted 'reppin' her home team the LA Dodgers, opting for the women's classic home jersey (https://www.majesticathletic.eu/en/los-angeles-dodgers-women-s-replica-jersey-home). Kardashian proves that women baseball jerseys can provide a desirable sporty look, even for aspiring fasionistas - and the guys certainly don't appear likely to be complaining!
Trendy and versatile
The range of shapes and styles which are offered by the jersey collections of the various MLB teams means a number of different looks are possible. Go for a slightly larger size than normal and you can get a loose fit which is perfect with baggy jeans, the jersey being unbuttoned and worn over another type of garment.
Buttoned up, MLB jerseys offer a much smarter style and can be worn as a slim-fitting item. This can be ideal for the classic style home jerseys in cream or white, which many of the franchises wear.
Baseball may be a summer sport, but you wouldn't know it given the number of people who now like to wear a baggy baseball jersey over a jumper, hoodie or even coat. It's a cool look which many of today's style icons have been seen exhibiting, and being able to rock baseball jerseys in the winter makes them a garment for all seasons.
Then there is the variety of T-shirts and other types of official garment which are different from the classic game uniform. These also make for great casual options which allow you to give your ensemble an American or sporty twist, without having to go into full on 'game mode'.
Whether or not you know your bunts from your double plays, you don't have to be a baseball connoisseur to get the fashion benefit of a baseball jersey.
Just pick the American city which appeals most to your character - whether you've been there or not. It could be the cosmopolitan New York, the free living Californian vibe of San Francisco, or the independent streak of Texas - whatever your mind frame, there is an MLB jersey which is suitable for you!
Majestic Athletic has come a long way from it's initial conception in 1976. What started life as a knitwear company producing baseball jersey's for local college teams in Tampa, has now become a multi-million dollar global brand, supplying customers all over the world.
