Fall Trend | The Varsity Jacket

October 15, 2009


The varsity jacket is a well established classic. We can all agree on that, but somehow it seems to me it’s particularly right for right now. That’s the way it goes with trends – it doesn’t have to be new to be in mode– it only needs a fresh perspective. Now, as it is with any trend, things come in many shapes and sizes (some are rad, some just bad); here are two of my favorite examples, each on an opposite side of the scale.

Continued after the jump


The first (above), aka the minimalist, by Japanese brand Over The Stripes (available from oki-ni), is a reinterpretation of the classic with a modern, silky twist. The second (top), representing the maximalist creed, is by NY based Streetwear label Supreme. Featuring 24 oz. melton wool body with leather arms and plenty of patches – it’s a classic gone rogue, but who doesn’t love a rebel? So, more or less – anyway you win!
