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.

Doc Martens & Red Laces.

Doc Martens & Red Laces.
Every culture has their secret codes and uniforms. Some are totally obvious and overt but most are less obvious and esoteric. Doc Martens, the classic U.K. boot, has been a favorite shoe across most of the punk spectrum. Did you know lace colors are a code? This is true and well documented. Red laced DM's are commonly associated with Anti-Racist punk groups. These folks generally have shaved heads and are often unfortunately confused with their awful, equally bald, opposites. Interesting little fact about vintage footwear. There's so much in our wardrobes. Continue reading
