No one on earth needs Dodgers’ collab with Off-White

Los Angeles Dodgers fans with thousands of dollars of disposable income should probably be lining up for All-Star Game ticket strips and postseason opportunities. They should not get distracted by MLB’s latest bright, shiny object: hats and jerseys with gigantic holes in them!

This leap of logic should go without saying, but apparently, after MLB and clothing brand Off-White revealed their latest collaboration on Thursday afternoon, it has to be vocalized.

MLB broke the internet in a bad way — not with, like, a Ronald Acuña Jr. bat flip, but rather with a torn-apart designer jersey that the author of this piece is far too lame to understand.

Is it art? Maybe! Should it be worn, and should you eat a hot dog at a ballgame while wearing it? Probably not, unless you’re good enough with dripping mustard to navigate it mid-air through the hole as it dribbles off your bun.

Clearly, the target audience is not me. Maybe it’s you! If so, get your $1,030 ready and start refreshing that website.

Dodgers’ Off-White collab with MLB is something horrendous

The hats are — and I mean this honestly — a freakin’ bargain. $260! For 3/4 of a hat! Might as well be free. And look, I’m just like you! I’ve paid $630 for a hoodie a couple times in my day. I chose a $630 hoodie over an engagement ring two years ago and never looked back — and, by the way, the bride-to-be looked beautiful in that hoodie. No complaints.

I’ve just … grown up since then. And I don’t want to see you fine Dodgers Way readers make the same mistake.

Or, then again, there’s always the alternate path:

There’s so much incredible Dodgers gear already on the market. Los Angelinos are lucky enough to live in a city that’s beyond marketable, leading to a number of fresh and exciting jersey options. They’re always in the spotlight, so there’s always playoff gear to buy. There are always new superstars to rep.

You don’t need these, which prove once again that MLB always picks the wrong “cutting edge” when given the chance.
