Beloved fictional soccer coach Ted Lasso has finally returned for a third season of his eponymous Apple TV+ hit, and we’re happy to report that he’s still rocking his signature look: thick mustache, pristinely combed hair, a sick pair of aviators, and, of course, some AFC Richmond merch. When he’s not rocking the team’s merch, though, he’s wearing something we want even more: the perfect sweatshirt.
The Midweight Pocket Sweatshirt by Todd Snyder and Champion is clearly a piece befitting a sports manager, fictional or not. And it should be, too—unlike the designer sweaters that Jamie Tartt wears or the impossibly black-on-black ensembles that Roy Kent puts together, Coach Lasso’s sweatshirt is a staple piece, a basic to be worn time and time again, on or off the field. Plus—it’s under $100. What did you expect? Lasso is a man of the people!
With a slightly tailored fit, this sweatshirt is just a bit classier than a typical style, with French terry giving it a soft, cozy feel. Plus, it comes in an array of colors, from green and blue and yellow to neutral gray and black—all with a chest pocket detail that’s both functional and fashionable, a step up from the average sweatshirt.

This season, Coach Lasso has sported a few different colors of the Midweight Pocket Sweatshirt, pairing it with an AFC Richmond puffer there, or a button-up shirt underneath it there. He wears it to the airport and to the pub and to his office (where, as we all know, personal style is not lacking within the team). Lasso, while still vying to prove himself as a soccer coach, has more than proved himself as an effortlessly chic style king in our books.
