Garage Dec-Jan 2010 Issue: Varsity and Letterman Jackets 50's Style

During the 1950′s, varsity jackets became the rage among high school and college students. Just as in the 1960′s with the culture radically changing and styles with it, fashion has reinvented once again the high school uniform into high street style, even crossing runway boarders for Louis Vuitton, Junya Watanabe and Calvin Klein. Garage’s latest issue features “Retro Sleek: How to Rock the Total Look from Fashion to Hairstyle”, “Top Holiday Styles”, “Party Time!”, “Super Trooper” and more!

“Comme des Garçons designer Junya Watanabe’s AW10 collection combines heritage design with the Watanabe’s unique use of contrasting fabrics. This leather varsity jacket takes this American college classic and adds a quilted camouflage lining, a subtle but well considered variation that works exceptionally well.” The results are beautiful and Vanson Leather construction is always top notch.
