This season, adidas Spezial takes inspiration from the look and the lineage of the British Soul scenes. There is a thread that runs from the Northern Soul phenomenon of the 1970s through the early House/Jazz Fusion of the 80s through Acid Jazz in the 90s that has left an unshakable imprint and legacy. The 70s saw London’s ‘Soul boys’ setting their own style agenda whilst working-class youths in the north were requesting rare, fast-tempo soul records in the clubs and dancehalls of Wigan and Blackpool. The adidas Pleckgate Track Jacket takes a silhouette made famous in the stands and infuses it with a carefree attitude. A stand-up collar and a bonded zip bring tailored style to your casual look.
