The history of the varsity jackets goes back to 1865. At that time, the best baseball players at Harvard University were honoured with jackets embroidered with an "H". If a player slackened in his performance, he had to give it back. It didn't take long for this type of jacket to become a symbol of dedication, diligence and loyalty.
Freedom looks damn good!
Today, this type of jacket is considered the embodiment of the "American way of life". This puts it in line with names like Fender, Harley Davidson, Corvette and Ford Mustang. The list of prominent personalities who donned such jackets is endless. James Dean also wore them in "For They Know Not What They Do", as did John Travolta in "Grease". Rock stars and rappers wear them as well as country singers.
Contrary to the movie titles above, they know exactly what they are doing: varsity jackets are absolutely comfortable! If you like sweatshirts, you'll love these jackets! Apart from that, they are absolutely easy to clean. Dirt on the jacket? Put it in the washing machine! Lastly, they're pretty darn durable. Clint Eastwood wears varsity jackets. Any questions?
Show me your (varsity) jacket and I'll tell you who you fancy!
The days when these jackets only bore the logos of sports teams are long gone. No matter whose fan you are, the chances of finding the right varsity jackets are excellent. Of course, there are also neutral ones. But honestly, who can resist "Deadpool"? Especially when it's a woman wearing a Harley Quinn jacket ... Sorry, Mr. J., but there it is.
"One for the money, two for the show"
The varsity jackets belongs to rockabilly like pomade and the Gretsch guitar. If you like it particularly cool, jump into skinny jeans and cowboy boots. Bands like the Baseballs don't leave home without this jacket. Combined with sneakers, the original idea comes into play: sport, sport and more sport!
With the matching jeans and Chucks on your feet, you again look very "high school like". In addition to the models for men, there are also great designs for women, whether gentle princess, Amazon or "Harley Quinn". In combination with leggings or tight jeans, a really cool outfit is created. Especially sexy is the combination with hot pants. But casual clothes also go perfectly with it. Female film stars in particular offer a lot of inspiration here. Whether you prefer it casual or "too hot to handle" is up to you. That's how it should be.
