And the sportswear giant is bringing the retro look from the screen to store shelves in a duo of collections. The Hawkins High Pack, which drops on June 27, pays a nod to the series’ school. The design incorporates green and orange color schemes and a Tiger mascot into a spirited mix of sweatsuits and matching sneakers. The collection retails from $65-$120.
