Welcome to the 5&A Dime soap box. 

World Cup x Game of Thrones

Jason Huggins

The first of my favorites, the House Stark kit. Should be long sleeve though, it's cold in the North.

Y'all know we're big Game of Thrones fans here at the shop. Since the fourth season ended we've been desperately looking for something to fill the void left in our lives. We may have found the answer in the world's favorite sport. Some of us down here on the block are big football (aka soccer) fans. Jay, Robert (HDQTRS) and Jordan (Product Etc.) played when they were younger. The rest of us, like most of the world, have caught World Cup fever and this takes both our interests to another level. Two things we really like, brought together by one guy's creativity.

Mash-ups, collaborations and logo-flipping are commonplace in today's Streetwear and Urban fashion. With sports and sports apparel being a big part of the culture, you see athletic fabrics, cuts and ideas brought forth in a lot of branding and design as well. In my opinion, the best mash-ups and collabs bring together aspects of different worlds and make them fit together in one. Two t-shirt companies throwing their designs/logos together is cool, but it's more interesting when the subjects come from different worlds and mesh into one, bringing their respective ideas/themes/cultures together.

That's exactly what Fashion Designer Nerea Palacios did when she re-imagined Nike's popular World Cup kits as if the World Cup was played in Westeros, aka the fictional world of Game of Thrones. Palacios conceptualized jerseys based off of the family houses and popular characters of the story/show, down to their house colors and mottos. Check out the images below and let us know which kit setup is your favorite!

The sometimes loved, but often hated, House Lannister. The unique collar and gold details around the shoulder make this kit look very regal. Tywin would be proud.

House Baratheon - I'm really digging the antler details around the collar.

Stannis gets his own kit with his Stag of Baratheon enclosed in the fiery heart of the Red God.

House Tyrell - The fading stripes and sublimated vine effects are cool. They show off the Tyrell motto of "Growing Strong" well.

House Martell - The sublimated sun and the collar of this kit look as if they were made IN Dorne. Maybe if Oberyn was sporting this he wouldn't have gotten his head smashed in by The Mountain.

House Tully - The house colors and "wave" effect of this kit work well with Catelyn Stark's homeland and family.

House Arryn - Lysa Arryn's crazy ass would've looked good flying out of the moon door in this.

House Bolton - Roose and Ramsay Bolton would probably enjoy skinning dudes in these. I don't know how they'd take to the pink though.

Another favorite, the Targaryen kit is killer! The gradient chevron down the chest with the sublimated scales makes this jersey look intimidating. The Targaryen colors of black and red don't look too bad either.

The White Walkers kit is perfect for covering up all those chunks of rotting and/or missing flesh. The white teamed with the shades of blue looks awesome. The double chevron making the "W" shape on the chest is sweet too.

The Night's Watch - Another favorite, the murdered out Night's Watch kit is badass! The sublimated feather looking artwork that makes the chevron shape on the chest is a sweet nod to the Night's Watch nickname of "Crows". Jon Snow may know nothing, but he and the Crows would look impressive battling it out in these.
