Steal His Style: The Letterman Jacket

Letters have been a part of the American sports mythos since 1865, when the Harvard baseball team embroidered the letter "H" on their flannel shirts, and by 1911, varsity letter sweaters were a common occurrence in high schools. The letter jacket itself appeared in the 1930s, and it's been a staple of scholarly athletics ever since.
Traditionally, women could only get a letterman jacket by borrowing it from a guy on one of their school’s sports teams, but thanks to Title IX, athletes of all genders can enjoy varsity style.
If your preferred sport is style spotting, though, you don’t have to give up your letter jacket dreams. Tons of brands make varsity jackets in flattering men’s style cuts, and they never go out of style. Get inspired to try a letterman jacket for yourself with these cool ensemble ideas from other Polyvore members!
