The Crew Neck.

Frankly Scallop, I Don't Give A Clam.

The origin of the Crew Neck sweatshirt can be traced back to the 1930's.  
The Crew Neck was garment designed for rowers, almost always collarless
with a round neckline, and usually made out of cotton.  
The sleeveless version was invented around the same time to be worn under football pads and was then embraced by the U.S. Navy as standard issue attire. 
The Crew Neck has cemented itself in American apparel right next to the tee shirt and blue jeans.  Frankly Scallop is available in our webshop!

Jackets: Letterman & Varsity.

A Letterman is a student (male or female) who has achieved a measured level of performance on a varsity team.  Varsity Jackets are awarded with 'Letters' displaying the level of athletic ability and success.  Letterman jackets are a symbol of endurance, talent, dedication and discipline.   They're also works of art.  

Traditional designs including school mascots and heavy embroidery are highly collectible both for their historical and aesthetic appeal.  This example circa mid 70's, from Paola, Kansas, is fantastic - the panther patch and color scheme is strong and the cream leather sleeves are a perfect contrast.   This is a wonderful jacket that wasn't just bought somewhere, someone earned this piece and was proud to wear it.
