Sixers release new 'Brotherly Love' merchandise

The Sixers' new 'Brotherly Love' merchandise capsule pays homage to Philadelphia history as part of the team's 2023 season City Edition theme.

Coinciding with this year's "City of Brotherly Love" city edition uniforms, the Sixers are releasing a merchandise collection that pays homage to Philly's richest basketball tradition. Like last season with their "Spectrum" merchandise, this is part of the franchise's "76 Originals" capsule.

Take a look at this minimalist "Brotherly Love" hoodie:

I dig the little "76" logo added above the cuff. 

Once decreed the "sweatpants capital of the world," Philadelphia loves its athleisure looks. These joggers are tailor-made for a Wawa run:

Sometimes, simplicity just gets the job done. 

The collection is available from SixersShop.com and at the Wells Fargo Center during Sixers games. The sweatshirts will run fans $119.99 while the joggers are being sold for $109.99, among other items. 

This capsule, again, plays up the franchise's "City of Brotherly Love" ethos with "76" branding throwing it back to the bicentennial era for Philadelphia and the team itself, too. The "City of Brotherly Love" uniforms caught some flack on social media, which I understand in the aftermath of last season's instant classic "Spectrum" set, but I'm a fan!

Here's how I'd rank the Sixers' City Edition sets:

  1. "Spectrum"
  2. "Parchment" from 2018
  3. "Creed" and "Rocky" grey 
  4. "City of Brotherly Love"
  5. "Parchment" from 2020
  6. "Boathouse Row" (just awful)

Another look at the merch:

I wouldn't hate it if someone got me those black joggers for a holiday gift. Just throwing it out there!
