when you read or see varsity jacket, you know you are in for some serious old school stuff, but the Shinola Men’s Varsity Jacket is more than just another American classic apparel; it is a new twist of the delightful jacket that can’t seem to get itself out of the 80s movies. this Shinola rendition (yes, Shinola is more than just timepieces and bicycle) is of wool and features leather cowhide sleeves, effectively employing different materials to further accentuate the old school two-tone look. it has an updated slim fit cut (cos’ baggy is so yesterday) and sport premium touches such as snap front buttons, leather trimmed slash pockets (without a doubt, the definitive trademark of old school jacket), ribbed knit collar, cuffs and hem, and finally, wrapping up with custom Shinola felt logo with satin stitching on the back of the jacket.
the Shinola Men’s Varsity Jacket is an exclusive collaborative effort between Shinola and San Francisco-based sports apparel company Golden Bear Sportswear, so you can expect nothing less than the highest quality. available in a choice of camel, light gray, and royal blue, the Shinola Men’s Varsity Jacket can be yours for a cool $424. as far as jackets are concerned, it ain’t cheap, but if quality and style are your priorities, the Shinola Men’s Varsity Jacket it is.
