Meet Chester Williams

Jump into our comfy boys’ hoodie today!

Our cozy boys’ hoodie was named after Chester Williams who was famously dubbed ‘The Black Pearl.’  During the 1995 Rugby World Cup games, Chester was the only black player on the Springbok Team from South Africa.  He became the poster boy (literally) of the end of apartheid in South Africa; his face was plastered on the sides of planes and on billboards.  Many South African children idolized him which eventually helped bring an end to the racial injustice in South Africa.  If you are curious about Chester and the rest of the Springboks, watch Invictus.
