Description
A dark gray hooded sweatshirt with full-length sleeves and a kangaroo patch pocket worn by Bishop John Richard Bryant to the Easter Prayer Breakfast at the White House on April 4, 2012. The word "NIKE" above the Nike brand swoosh logo is printed in off-white across the front chest of the sweat shirt. The hood of the shirt has a matching dark gray braided cloth tape strung through it so it can be pulled tight around the face, with knots tied at the end of each side of the cord and metal aglets on the tips. The waist and the cuffs of each sleeve are made from a dark gray ribbed knit for a tighter fit than the body and sleeves. A manufacturer's label is sewn at the interior center back neck. An additional tag with style, fiber content, and care information is sewn at the interior proper left side seam near the hem.
