Band of Boys Varsity Jacket

The Band of Boys Varsity Jacket is the jacket of the season! Drawing inspiration from the iconic American College jackets, this latest addition will become an investment piece for your mini's wardrobe. The varsity jacket dates back to 1865 Harvard University baseball , where they would sew a large 'H' onto the front of their team uniforms. These uniforms were for the most prestigious of players. By the early 1900s, students began wearing 'letterman' cardigans and pullovers, donning large, embroidered 'H’s. From the 1930s is what we know as varsity jackets. Sportsmen wanted heavier clothing to combat the cold, so buttons were added to wool jackets along with leather sleeves. The letter moved to one side, and the letterman jacket became a status symbol within universities. Sportsmen had to earn their letter through performance on the field, and once you got it, it was sewn onto the jacket; it was very serious. Starting through the most prestigious Ivy League colleges, flowing through to high schools and other colleges in America. It was during this time the term 'varsity jacket' was coined. By the '80s, the varsity jacket's popularity exploded thanks to American sports franchises. Today, the varsity jacket keeps reinventing itself as a timeless fashion piece. Even just recently, we can see these style jackets trending at New York Fashion Week from the Tommy Hilfiger show.
