A menswear standout amongst the awesome (and often peculiar) specimens in our new Brite Lites_Gift City Pop-In Shop, the Opening Ceremony varsity jacket above inspired us to bring 15 of our favorite baller-status jackets off the bench.
Our study in Fall contrast continues with clean-cut prep, worn-in leather, streamlined stripes, and woodsy plaid from some of our favorite Designer Collections. Photographed at Kubota Garden, a 20-acre sanctum of lush pines nestled amongst the stark pavement of south Seattle. [See part 1 of this series.]
“This is a top-shelf varsity jacket as we head into our second year of loving everything collegiate. I appreciate this True Religion one because the brand has authenticated the style to the point where it looks as though it could have been passed down or even vintage. The fit is spot on. All the bells and whistles make it feel original but won’t make a guy look like he’s an extra in Grease.”
—Jim Moore, GQ Creative Director
