I was under the impression that they were called varsity jackets? Still, such a cool look. I love the longer style in the last picture; I haven’t seen one like that before, but it bet it’s much more flattering!
I am fascinated that this very American style jacket has recently become a hit with the style set. In my high school, the jocks would lend their varsity jackets with their names embroidered on them to their girlfriends to show they were ‘going steady’. Never thought I’d see pics of chic women in Europe wearing this style.
That’s why you can’t donate anything. I had a jacket just like that when I was 18 yrs old. I wore it around Paris. I remember a parisian girl thought that it was an authentic high school jacket. I didn’t have the heart to tell her I actually got it at The Limited. LOL!
