School Spirit


No longer reserved for football games in middle America, the varsity letterman jacket has started showing up on streets from Paris and London to Tokyo and New York. Vintage-inspired embroideries adorned most of the jackets, giving an air of authenticity to the modern styling of many of these trendsetters. Even Kanye West got into the mood to show his “school spirit” (also his first album’s title) last week at a New York Fashion Week party. For more inspiration, take a look at Franklin & Marshall’s assortment in the Stylesight Search. The Italian-based brand takes inspiration from a real-life college in Pennsylvania, turning out modern spins on varsity, collegiate apparel each season.
