If Golden Bear‘s S. Slater varsity jackets look like the real deal, that’s because for a few decades in the 20th century, the San Francisco brand was sewing made-to-order awards jackets for high schools and colleges in addition to its lucrative motorcycle jacket business.
That was then, and this is now: JackThreads‘ Tailored division just got its hands on a crop of the Bear’s varsities. On each jacket, the super-colorful sleeves are leather, which somewhat explains the steeper pricetag. Inside, quilted lining will help you stand up to winter’s gusts.
If you were hanging onto some cash to cop something slick this holiday season (either for yourself, or for a giftee), now might be the time.
JackThreads has nine styles from the premium brand, and each is $249.99 USD until they’re sold out.
