Default Varsity Jackets

I'm thinking of buying my brother a varsity jacket since he got me an ipod for my birthday a couple months ago I know his style and I think he would like something similar to this (the jacket J. Cole the rapper is wearing)



only jacket I can find which is similar is the

Nike NSW Varsity Jacket - Nike Sportswear - New Arrival - NSW Varsity Jacket

but I'm trying to find a varsity jacket with a hood kind of thing going on, any suggestions? Links to websites would be much appreciated

1) Why not just get one of his school's one? Show some campus pride 'n all? Maybe show-off to other people where you've come from (if it's worth showing-off).

2) Most varsity jackets are ... just the jackets. No hoods. What people do (at least that I know of) are to have a sweater or hoodie underneath the jacket and wear the hood like that.

Varsity jackets are usually worn for school spirit or, in the case of very exclusive schools, showing off your Ivy League Awesomeness. I reckon that's what the 'varsity' in the term is for.

He goes to middle school (they don't get the jackets) and he likes to dress black tbh

what's so bad about wearing a varsity jacket a side from 'showing school spirit' IMO they look pretty nice

Varsity Jackets (I've always heard them called "Letter jackets" or "Letterman Jackets" where I'm from) are awesome. They're great for wearing in cold weather since they're very warm and comfy. That being said, you don't have to wear one from your school...my mom has one from Michigan state that she got in a garage sale (never even been to michigan).

It's kinda hard to find them with hoods, since it's not a standard design, and when they do, they usually are zippered hoods (ones with a zipper running halfway through them) so that they can lay flat on the back when unzipped. Keep in mind though, letter jackets can get very expensive. I was looking for one online (wanted one that looked like Soul Eater's) and custom ones can be around $150+ -_-

Try searching thrift shops for nice ones that are inexpensive.

Nice 'n vintage. Love thrift stores. You can find almost anything in 'em for really cheap. It's like a marketplace of a garage sale!

Oh, then haha.
I never said there's anything wrong with showing school spirit. I made purple one of my staple ensemble palates in favor of being prideful of my school (where the school colors are purple and gold).

I thought people only get those for their school when they play for a team >_>
would be awkward to wear one if you didn't lol
hence the "varsity" for varsity or junior varsity etc..

@Mikumiku: I've actually seen those like, a bajillion times whenever I've been to F21. Been wanting to buy one for a while, now, but it's not cold enough for them just yet--

Plus, I always catch my eyes on cardigans and neat-o dress shirts. c:

They're always so expensive compared to the women's clothes. It makes me cry. ;A;
