There’s no doubt varsity jackets are one of the hottest Fall trends, which might have something to do with new school year kicking off. Since the first varsity jacket hit Harvard University’s Cambridge, MA campus in 1865, brands have created compelling story lines surrounding the statement piece that symbolizes ‘scoring the girl’. Although varsity style never left, a few brands have recently paid homage to its vintage detail, construction and overall aesthetic – from luxury menswear brands (i.e. Coach + Marc Jacobs), to more accessibly priced Americana brands like Flag & Anthem. Our favourite piece comes from the latter, and here are some details from the Eastport Varsity jacket that is coming to their new fall collection.
About Flag & Anthem
Flag & Anthem is a brand for guys who are in life’s sweet spot. It’s for a guy who is comfortable being himself. Flag & Anthem is subtle, smart, well-made style for the kind of guy who values hard work, but also knows how to unwind and have a good time. Guys who know there’s a middle place between a weak handshake and trying to crush the other guy’s knuckles. Between the past and the future. Between effortless and relaxed. Because let’s be honest–too much of each isn’t who you are.
