It all started with an idea, we wanted something to wear to Grizzlies games that would really show the pride we have for the team. First we took measurements, picked fabric, and finalized the design. Then we got to work.
First the fur was cut and stitched together making the base of the coat.
Then the old fur was removed from the bear face and replaced with the matching blue fur from the coat.
Everything was covered except the eyes, nose and mouth.
A little fur styling and a bit of a trim was needed to make it more bear-face-like. The head was then attached to the coat base and made to be worn as a hood.
Then a lining was attached in a nice light blue that matched the team’s color scheme. A little finishing here, a little finishing there, and done!
We hope that the coat is enjoyed not only by the customer who ordered it but by the whole fan base for The Memphis Grizzlies. Please keep an eye out on Fox Sports South and ESPN for the Grizz Bear Coat on the side lines at any Memphis Grizzlies game in the FedEx Forum.
