Not too long ago, Gant Rugger rolled out a Varsity Jacket that set men's style blogs on fire and who can blame them. The Varsity Jacket is an American icon (as seen in Details). It's right up there with apple pie and motorcycles because it's more than a jacket, it's a status symbol. For some of us, the Varsity Jacket represents a time when we roamed the halls as the big man on campus, proudly showing off our Letter as some sort of super emblem of our athletic abilities. While for others, the jacket brings a negative stigma of Jocks and Cheerleaders who ruled the school and acted as though no one else existed except their little cliques. Either way, the power of the jacket cannot be denied and that is why I wanted to shed a little spotlight on it.
And if you're still in the market for a Varsity Jacket, sorry but the Gant Rugger one is currently sold out at Blackbird. However, might I suggest that you take a look at Ebbets Field Flannels 1939 replica jacket of the fictional New York Knights from The Natural. Made in the U.S.A.
