NAVI Launches a Limited-Edition Collection
Ukrainian CS:GO professional player Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev has been named Best player of 2021, according to HLTV rankings. For two years in a row, s1mple held the second spot but climbed to the top in this year's classification. To celebrate the occasion, the Ukrainian esports organization Natus Vincere, for which s1mple is contracted, released a limited-edition merchandise collection called “S1MPLE THINGS”.
The collection consists of three items that have been autographed by the Gamer of the year himself. It consists of oversized T-shirts, and oversized hoodies, as well as gaming sleaves. Although these items are only available in a single color and design pattern, they should still be enough to satisfy those wanting to purchase them as performance wear increasingly plays an important part in pro gaming.
What Can You Get?
The clothes themselves come in a white base and black pattern design. The sleeves have s1mple's autograph on them and are available in two sizes: Small/Medium and Large/Extra Large. They currently cost about $22.50 with a varied shipping fee being applied according to the place they are shipped to.
The t-shirts follow a similar white background and black autograph design pattern as the sleeves. According to the item’s description in Navi’s official shop, the product is made from 70% cotton, 20% polyester, 5% microfiber, and 5% elastane. A single t-shirt is currently priced at $50.75.
Lastly, the hoodies also follow the same design patterns as the t-shirts and sleeves. They are available in three sizes: Extra Small, Small/Medium, and Large/Extra Large, and are made from 70% cotton and 30% polyester. A single hoodie will set you back just slightly above $100, excluding shipping.
S1mple’s ascension to the top of HLTV’s ranking was not quick and easy. For the last two years, he always came at second place, just after Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut, who won the title in 2019 and 2020. Time will tell if he can retain his title in 2022.
