Facts: Founded by former tennis player and coach Carla Hilbig, Down the Line Sportswear specializes in fashionable tennis and fitness apparel for women, but also offers men’s and juniors tees and tank tops. The hoodie comes in three colors—black, white and black camo—and is available in sizes S-XL. Comprised of 60 percent cotton and 40 percent polyester, the form-fitting hoodie does not lose its shape after repeated wearings and is machine washable (cold water wash). The Burnout Hoodie is part of DTL’s “Bad to the Bone” line, applying the skull and crossed racquets symbol to graphic t-shirts, skirts and hoodies.
Impressions: If the Oakland Raiders sponsored a women's tennis team, they might well wear DTL gear. Combat the autumn chill with the customizable style. For an extra $10, you can add a rhinestone design to the front left side of the hoodie, bringing a bit of toxic tennis edginess (skull and crossed racquets), passion (heart and crossed racquets), or iconic imagery (ball and crossed racquets; crossed racquets only) to make the design your own. The hoodie is lightweight, feels soft to the skin, and can add a distinctive touch of fierceness or playfulness to your standard on-court attire.
