Varsity jackets have been making somewhat of a revival the last few years. This is something I personally enjoy because it makes me a little nostalgic. One, because I remember my parents having them (similar to this but with black sleeves) and two, sports weren’t really my thing so I never actually got to own a real varsity jacket. Instead, I got to wear a super uncomfortable cheerleading uniform with orthopedic-looking gym shoes…and those, my friends, were great times.
So getting back on track…
Alongside things like capes, knee-high boots and white wide-leg pants, varsity jackets are something that’s always in the back of my mind but I never really executed in my wardrobe. After seeing this photo on Le 21ème from this past September, this perfect-transition-to-spring item is on my mind once again.
What I especially love about varsity jackets is that they’re great for both men and women. If you’re a guy looking to splurge on this type of outerwear, please buy this one from Saint Laurent…and let me borrow it. I thank you in advance.
So if varsity jackets happen to be on your mind as well, then it’s time you get your fix.
