Gear 101: How POINT 3 Is Made

Not unlike a consistent jumper or crazy handles, making The World's Best Basketball gear is a process that takes time, practice, attention to detail and above all else, a whole lotta hard work!  To help you understand what goes into making a POINT 3 garment, here's the first installment of Gear 101: How POINT 3 Is Made...

Step 1 - INSPIRATION

No journey is complete without a goal.  To design The World's Best Basketball garments, we need inspiration - which always starts with the ballplayer...out on the court, working hard and expecting their gear to work even harder.  But beyond that, we try to pair our guarantee of functional performance with unique design elements to offer our customers the most technologically advanced basketball apparel available.

It's thick, detailed and complicated - but that's why we're The World's Best...

OK, that's today's lesson.  Stay tuned for our next POINT 3 Behind the Brand where we'll move to Gear 201 - cutting, sewing, checking for quality, then checking again.  And once you get that right, we'll accept your application as our design intern...
