The limited edition collection includes three pieces of headwear: a wool hat, a reflective, reversible bucket hat and a classic 9FIFTY cap. It also includes a long-sleeved t-shirt, and a varsity jacket featuring Moodymann’s signature, his KDJ Records logo and the iconic Detroit Tigers old English ‘D’.

As Moodymann says, “using the Detroit trademark English ‘D’ was the most important element to me. I always want to support my city. I keep Detroit dust under my feet no matter where I‘m standing.”

The collection is accompanied by a short film, featuring some important figures from the Detroit music scene, including regular collaborator Amp Fiddler, and Mike Banks of Underground Resistance. The film also features an interview with Gilles Peterson, and sees Moodymann visit Archer Record Pressing plant in Detroit.
