    We'll see.

    The real Starter was a New Haven company started by a Southern Connecticut athlete that produced great quality product for more than a decade before going public and getting in over its head in the early '90s. Now it's just another brand in the G-III Apparel Group, which also has licenses with Calvin Klein, Sean John , Kenneth Cole , Cole Haan , Guess?, Jones New York, Jessica Simpson , Vince Camuto , Ivanka Trump , Nine West, Ellen Tracy , Tommy Hilfiger , Kensie, Mac & Jac, Levi's and Dockers, according to the press release.

    Shell of its former self is my guess. Too bad.

    I'll trade you a Kelly Bundy doll for that Sixers jacket.

    Still have mine of the other major sports team in Charlotte. Too bad it doesn't get chilly enough where I have the opportunity to wear it much. Very, very warm ...

    Every time I see someone still wearing one (egad!) I remember the line, why do you want to be a member of club that you are the Only Member of?

    Before his morphing into Darth Hoodie, Mumbles was quite stylish.

    This is what he does for Starter. He continues to show his loyalty - you know, because the NFL will fine you for wearing the wrong brand, even coaches - by sawing the sleeves off of gray Reebok and Nike hoodies.
