Fall Trend | The Varsity Jacket
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.

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!
