1 Garb, 3 Looks: Varsity Jacket

The fall sports season is in full swing and to commemorate those nights sitting courtside at basketball games or huddled under blankets at football games. I thought I would pay homage to the varsity jacket. The varsity jacket in a cultural sense ascribes a certain level of accomplishment, prestige and advertises to the world that you now belong to an elite group of athletes.

As it tends to happen… the fashion world takes cues from the youth subculture and appropriates it to fit into the realm a fashion good. What the fashion-inspired varsity jacket might lack in athletic cenotaph, it makes up for it with style. On the runway the varsity jacket has been featured in exaggerated shapes, clean lines and a mixture of fabrics.

Take a look at how we turned the varsity garb into 3 looks you can wear at your homecoming dance, at work or the weekend.
