Varsity jackets span quite a wide range of different types. We used to call them just baseball jackets, but we have since learned that this description is a bit narrow to say at least. There are varsity jackets for so many different types of disciplines, not even all athletic. All of them though radiate a positive energetic vibe that takes us back to the good old America of the 1950s when people drove good looking cars, drank soda pops in drive in theaters and in general seemed to be living the American Dream. The fact that all the varsity jackets feature at least a bit of color, and some a lot, makes them stand out. They can be paired with a simple t-shirt and jeans for the sporty jock look, but also with chinos and a shirt for a more preppy look. And when worn by girls they are amazing too. So all in all it is obvious why we like them so much and good ones are hard to find.
We were really pleased to find our first ever vintage piece made by the amazing Dehen knitting company from Portland. This company doesn't cut any corners when it comes to quality in materials and construction. This varsity jacket is a real testimony to that. A thick wool body and dito leather sleeves are just one of the tokens of the Dehen quality. This jacket features an amazing wool patch on the back too. All in an exceptional piece that we really like a lot.
