Katy, Texas-based retailer Academy Sports + Outdoors is launching a new collection of private label apparel featuring retro, throwback designs ahead of summer.

The retailer’s first-ever retro collection features is billed as “a tribute to the summers of the 90s,” and includes graphic-print tanks, cropped shirts, boat shorts, a bucket hat, duffel bag and more, all featuring shades of red, white and blue. Non-apparel items in the new collection include a classic Igloo Playmate cooler, webbed lawn chairs, bean bag toss and more.
