Champion featured on Shane Dawson latest conspiracy video

Shane Dawson’s latest conspiracy video featured the brand Champion.

It highlighted how the brand had risen recently to become a boutique brand despite been sold in discount stores like target for years.

I thought it made an interesting watch as to the power of marketing and influencers, many popular YouTuber wear the brand and have no doubt contributed to it success.

I think a similar thing has happen with Fila, which has regained popularity and a high price tag.

Don’t want to link the video due to bad language but simply search

Champion has comeback thanks to Japan. Until recently the Champion brand in Japan was licensed to Goldwin who made quality products bearing the Champion logo, whilst in the west it was owned by Hanes (Sara Lee before them) who were content to just make budget sportswear.

Hanes bought Champion of Japan and runs it the same way as Goldwin did, that leads to the tiers of quality available.
As Champion Japan used to be good, it lead to collabs with brands like BAPE and speciality lines and stores like Champion Heritage Times. These pieces end up being popular in Japan and people into streetwear and fashion get inspired from the Japanese pieces and then people not so much in to fashion are influenced by those people.

Yeah noticed The North Face is stocked now in more fashion retailers like Footasylum, J D Sports as well as Outdoor stores.

Interesting to see how brands evolve, your insight in to champion was helpful and of interest to me.
