Posted: Apr 06 2016
Calling all coulda-been/shoulda-been jocks, Monday morning quarterbacks, and Kevin Arnold dress-alikes: we've got the jacket for you. The Cotton Varsity Jacket from San Francisco-based Golden Bear is one of our absolute favorites this spring, and is a sure-fire winner for those days when you're never sure whether it's gonna dump rain or the sun will shine.
Made from a water-resitant cotton Maxima outer, the Cotton Varsity Jacket combines the timeless sportswear silhouette of a varsity jacket – raglan-sleeve construction, ribbed waistband, collar and cuffs, leather trim on the front slash pockets – with rugged-yet-lightweight materials and a slim, modern fit. So whether you got your varsity letter in actual football or just the fantasy kind, you'll be looking good and feeling even better. The Cotton Varsity Jacket was specially made for us by Golden Bear in a beautiful forest green body with with green and brown ribbing, plus a light, comfortable grey nylon liner. Featuring a snap-front closure and an interior security pocket, the Cotton Varsity Jacket fits slim and hits right at the hip for a sharp, modern feel.
Golden Bear has crafted its sportswear since 1922, specializing in the dockworker jackets needed by the workers of San Francisco's bustling port. In the 1950s, they began producing their now-famous varsity jackets, and have continued to lead the sportswear pack ever since. We're proud to carry them at our store, and we think this Freeman-exclusive Cotton Varsity Jacket could be your new favorite spring-summer coat for years to come.
