Ahhhh, the Varsity Jacket — once an item of clothing only given out to those who ranked high in their sport of choice, those who carried on their team’s legacy and worn in pride. Well nowadays you don’t even have to be able to throw a horseshoe to own one, as they’ve become a staple in nearly every label’s wardrobe. Visvim’s Windstopper is a top example of the varsity jacket, made of wool for the bodice, fine quality leather for the sleeves and lined with classic striped ribbing. For Fall/Winter 2011 the Japanese label drops styles in two colorways — either dark gray and white, or brown and white. Gold zippers and pockets line the inside. Pick yours up at Union LA.
