Are we the only ones seeing double in K-Pop lately?
There’s no doubt that idols tend to recycle the same items and looks, but this summer, we’ve definitely seen more than just one of our K-Pop favorites rocking the same exact item – a vintage Adidas-inspired track jacket with stripes along the sleeves. We decided to do a little investigating to find out exactly where they’re all getting this item from – and it was a lot easier than we thought it’d be!
The trendy item is the NERDY NY Track Jacket, a part of Korean independent brand NERDY’s S/S 2017 line, which is inspired by the street fashion of old school New York City.

The track jacket is made out of 100% moisture-wicking polyester and can be worn as a separate or paired with matching NY track pants sweatpants, as seen on our K-Pop boyfriend Roy Kim. Doesn’t he look comfortable?
Korean hip-hop trendsetter Zico also rocked the purple and gold jacket in his “Artist” music video last month.

However, the NERDY NY Track Jacket also comes in a black/green scheme, which has been almost as equally a hit as the original. Both WINNER’s Kang SeungYoon and Dok2 were both recently seen on Instagram rocking the jacket – both with the matching sweatpants and separately.
Our favorite part about this throwback look is that it looks just as effortlessly cool on our K-Pop ladies! Sandara Park and Sulli also have been spotted rocking the original purple and gold NY Track Jacket on social media.
IU was also seen wearing the purple and gold style on a recent episode of “Hyori’s Bed And Breakfast,” the oversized cut of the hoodie giving it a cute and somewhat unintentional ‘boyfriend’ look.
