Today’s post comes with a brief introduction: The varsity jacket is not for everyone. Pulling off a varsity jacket can be a little difficult, especially if you’re not particularly good at rocking the “my-shoulders-have-enough-room-to-throw-the-party-of-the-year-inside-this-cavernous-jacket” look. HOWEVER. When done correctly, a varsity jacket can be very dashing indeed, in a casual “Rebel Without A Cause” -type way. And let’s not forget how handy they are to have around, what with being both warm and easier to tote around than a pea coat once temperatures drop. And if you’re going to get a varsity jacket, this is THE one– Golden Bear has been providing jackets to both counter-cultural figures and mainstream celebs alike for decades, and Union Made really knows what they’re doing in terms of Made In The USA heritage-quality goods. So this collaboration had us from the get-go. So yes, varsity jackets aren’t for everyone. But who wants to be “everyone” anyhow? Get it here.
