This the Adidas Canal+ RTL sweater in the white, black and gold color. Adidas was founded in 1948 by Adolf "Adi" Dassler in Germany after him and his brother Rudolf (founder of Puma) split up their athletic footwear business. Adidas since has become the largest manufacturer of sportswear in Europe and second, only to Nike, in the world. These crewnecks were very popular in the 1980's but Adidas has seized making these types of designs. Be sure to add this piece to your vintage collection.
