Our favorite approach when picking street wear is the ability to fuse comfortable function with a dose of non pretentious uptown style. There’s nothing better than owning a versatile garment, allowing you to take it from day casual, to night time red carpet. Wouldn’t you agree? The varsity jacket is no exception. Believe us, it’s true. One of this falls trends to watch is a revamp of the old classic letterman by the original Comme des Garçons protégé, and Japanese designer Junya Watanabe. Attention to detail is evident from the ribbed collar and use of easy snap buttons, while the use of heavy felt wool is crafted into what still remains to be a distinct blazer. This craftsmanship will cost you though- at a price tag of $1,500 you would think economic hardship would tighten up luxury spending. Apparently that’s not the case, as it is already sold out at Bloomingdale’s in NYC. We say, Ra! Ra! Let’s All! Speeend money!
