Grindr Launches "Grindr Varsity," Fashion Line Benefiting Non-profit Athlete Ally

Grindr Launches "Grindr Varsity," Fashion Line Benefiting Non-profit Athlete Ally

You knew it was coming. Earlier this year designer J. W. Anderson streamed his personal line’s FW16 fashion runway show exclusively on Grindr before releasing it to the world.

Today Grindr launched its Varsity Collection, a locker room themed collection for purchase on the Grindr Store. You have to love the double entendre in the description of the line, “Clothing and accessories for the guy who likes to break a sweat...and always makes it to the finish line.”

Of course it includes Tops and Bottoms, but also Outerwear, Swimwear, and Accessories (gym bag, bandanas, and “prick” pins to identify yourself along various roles). The clothing is a collaboration with Print All Over Me, which has designed pieces that incorporate references to queer pop-culture and ancient Greek motifs.

The best part though is that all proceeds benefit Athlete Ally, a non-profit dedicated to fighting homophobia and transphobia in sports. Seems rather ironic though that this collection is launched a day after the controversy and scandal surrounding a writer’s recent attempt to “report on” sexual activities of gay athletes at the Olympics in Rio vis-a-vie hook-up apps (OutWard - Slate).

HOW TO MEASURE

Kinkster NYC Sizing Chart

The best way to determine size is to measure one of your favorite fitting shirts first and comparing to our approximated size charts.

WIDTH: The body width is measured by laying the shirt flat on it's back, keeping it free from wrinkles, and measuring from one arm pit to the other arm pit.

LENGTH: The body length is measured from neck seam to the bottom of the T-shirt.

APPROXIMATE CHEST: Measure under arms around the fullest part of the chest. Be sure to keep tape level across back and comfortably loose.
