The clothier behind the OVO/Raptors jersey/jacket, Michael Nguyen recently revealed the details on the jacket to The Star.
The fabric for the jersey reportedly comes from a French mill by Toronto's Garrison Bespoke. It was reported that the jersey was one of the first examples of "jersey" cloth from 1927.

The diamonds embedded on the jacket are reportedly lab-grown and carbon-neutral. Nguyen reveals "This is truly a 1 of 1 piece" he told the star.
He continued "Both the jersey inside, which Drake himself helped design, and this very special piece of cloth. And the diamonds, of course".
