McGill is not necessarily known for showing the same kind of school spirit as our southern counterparts — school clothing is as underrated as our varsity sports teams. This Fashionisto earns his letters with an unconventional take on the college classic letterman jacket. He doesn’t know how on trend he is, considering that mere days ago Style.com featured an editorial on varsity jackets. For both men and women, jackets like this usually reserved for athletic honors are having a serious sartorial moment. From Bottega Veneta to Balmain, the runways have been showing looks like this for the past couple seasons.
This trend has been seen recently in high fashion, however, it had its beginnings on campus. This Fashionisto wears it appropriately with worn-in jeans and Nike high-tops. His Abercrombie henley is a rugged basic that makes for easy layering in cooler weather. For those of you who are more comfortable in loafers than sneakers, try a jacket like this with an oxford button up and cuffed khaki pants.
Hint: Cool boys across the generations have been wearing varsity jackets. From Danny Zuko to Kanye West, no matter how you wear it, an I-don’t-care attitude is the ultimate accessory for a jacket like this. Gimme an R!
