All the magazines are telling you ”the varsity jacket is back!”.
Where did it go? I’ve been wearing varisty jackets since my freshman year of high school. In my opinion they have always been a great option for a sporty and masculine casual jacket. Athletes wear them with pride, preppy types love them, hell, there’s even a good chance your dad still has one in the back of his closet.
The good news is, their current popularity means there’s a good selection on the market. I tried a handful of different designers before finding this number from The Brookyn Circus - founded by Ouigi Theodore (as featured here).
The slim-but-not-snug fit, the quality of the wool and leather, the clean button closure, the iconic “concrete-jungle” symbol, the taller ribbed collar, and the fact that it’s Made in USA had me sold as soon as I put it on.
Here, I styled it for 5 different weekend outfits.
1. Denim & Chino
On a weekend with nothing to do, which seams to be rare lately, this is what you can find me in.
Simple, masculine, put-together but not over-the-top.
Take a look at your go-to casual pieces for a laidback day, it might be time to upgrade. A well rounded wardrobe has you ready for any occasion, even if there isn’t really an occasion at all.
