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.

Halloween comes every year and every year decisions must be made - sexy ghost? Plumber? Netflix & Chill (Real thing) Where do you get such a great halloween get up? VINTAGE SHOPS, of course! A cheesy, store bought costume lacks character and originality and on the one day you're to be remembered for what you wore, why not step it up and get serious about your holiday outfit? Halloween is the night to be yourself. The night to come alive, if you will (if you're done up as a sexy Frankenstein - also, real thing). Whatever your costume idea may be, choose to shop in a good vintage shop like The Clothing Warehouse. You're guaranteed to have the most original get up on the block, the office, parade or party. Vintage gear is sustainable, looks cooler and can be recycled.
