When Griff Tannen and his crew are about to mess Marty's day up with the “Kirk Gibson Jr. Slugger 2000” bat over the water in 2015's Courthouse Square, you can get a really clear peek at Griff's black mesh T-shirt.

Of course designers like Nasir Mazhar and Dsquared2 have incorporated mesh into their catwalk collections, but the rise of sportswear plays its own unique role as well. As tech fabrics and athletically-driven materials affect the way designers craft their collections and cater to their audience, lighter materials like, well, mesh have crossed over from Parisian maisons to VFILES.
