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.
This is easily one of the best varsity jackets we have had period. The detail, the colors, the quality, the age... all make this into a totally unique piece. It is reversible with a black and orange wool side as well as the 'negative' of this but than made from silk. There is a super nice chain stitched eagle on both (!) sides of the jacket and even the pockets are trimmed with two colors on both sides. We have not yet found who or what the eagles are. The jacket was made in New Jersey and the four of clover like 'flower' reminds us somewhat of a fire department emblem. All in all a stunning piece of archival quality.
