Champion, the iconic athletic brand that's been around since 1919, has gotten a new lease on life thanks to Todd Snyder. Made up of classic pieces inspired by the company's long history, the Todd Snyder x Champion Sportswear Collection includes a number of classic essentials — everything from sweatshirts ($130-$175), hoodies ($175-$195), and T-shirts ($60-$95) to thermals ($98), cardigans ($115-$195), sweatpants ($150), and shorts ($115) — all of which is so versatile, it looks just as at home on the street as it does in the gym. Every piece in the collection sports an authentic 1950's Champion label with "T.SNYDER" stenciled in the back of each garment. Vintage sportswear doesn't get any better than this.

Making t-shirts is hard work — first you need a great design, then you need to learn how to screen print, and we haven't even gotten to the whole selling part. The good people at Cotton Bureau T-Shirts ($20) have taken the trouble out of making and selling a great shirt, letting designers focus on what they're good at — designing. The concept is simple. Designers submit a design and it has two weeks to generate 25 sales. If it does so, it gets sold — if not, it doesn't. The shirts are printed in limited runs, so the odds of one of your buddies showing up in the same one are pretty slim.
