Like the previous releases from the Rollers line of products, the new spats show 93 Brand's gratitude to the forefathers of BJJ with a clever Ramones-inspired seal. The black and white graphics are 100% sublimated, guaranteed to resist fading and peeling despite countless hours on the mats and in the washing machine. The crisp white seal and "ROLLERS" type provide a nice contrast against the subtly textured photo background.
"Rollers" commemorates four of the grandfathers of ground-fighting, without whom we would not have the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu we know today. From the top, we've got: Count Maeda, who brought the original art to Brazil; Carlos and Helio, who fine-tuned the intricacies of the guard and Vale Tudo; and Oswaldo Fadda, who brought BJJ to the poorer areas of Brazil and encouraged the inclusion of footlocks.
These four gentlemen are largely responsible for the foundation of BJJ. Their names replace those of the four Ramones, who laid groundwork themselves for the punk genre.
93 Brand's premium spats format includes a simple and effective compression cut, consisting of 82/18 poly/lycra panels that are secured with low-profile, ultra-strong flatlock stitching. The wide Jacquard band is nice and flexible while still hugging your waist to ensure a steady and secure hold. Smooth stretch fabric covers the interior and the upper edge of the waistband so that even if you put on a few pounds during the holidays, the softened upper edge will keep the spats from digging into your skin. Equipped with an internal drawstring for easy adjustment.
