For those of you dying to find an acceptable venue to rock your high school varsity jacket, and re-live the memories from the “glory days” – your chance is now. Brands like True Religion and Madewell are showing versions with leather and updated patches, giving the style a modernized appeal. Retro details, like the striped woven collar and contrasting pocket binding, make the outerwear a stand out piece achieving success in both function and style categories. Above all, our favorite reason to jump on board with this trend is the fact you don’t actually have to play a sport, or root for a spirited mascot, in order to wear it. However, if you consider “Surviving Rush Hour in Downtown” a sport, we made the Varsity team a long time ago.
