How to Use Varsity Jacket 1

Hello readers of Levitating! My name is Isabela Labate, I’m a senior in journalism at PUC-SP and two of my biggest interests are sports and fashion, so I created my blog. Now I’m a part of the team of the fashion blog Levitating and, from today, I will give tips on how to use everything in the world fashion trend. Today we’ll talk about varsity jacket!

You know what’s varsity jacket? Might not even have heard of, but I bet you’ve seen those typical American movies Cardigan. This type of JKT (meaning: http://www.abbreviationfinder.org/acronyms/jkt.html) was born with the players and cheerleaders from Harvard University, in 1865. The College football team, to differentiate the team, crashed the letter “H” on your jacket. After a while, the Varsity migrated to the American high school. The first Yearbook in which students appear using the play was the Phoenix Union High School District in the State of Arizona. Nowadays, the varsity jacket is very popular in the United States and became a fashion icon.

Lately we talk a lot about the bomber jacket, even tell the story of it in this post, but some readers asked me about the jacket varsity, because they judge the model very much like the bomber and there were some who even question me about the barracuda (or barracuta in a few cases) that model is also quite similar and little commented on by the fashion sites.

They really are pieces of male clothing very similar, but they all have characteristics that differ, even though many times they are very discrete and, at one time or another, the designers blend all creating jackets that are a sort of Frankenstein.

What is the Difference Between the Bomber Jackets, Varsity Jackets and Barracuda Jackets

Looking so it doesn’t seem like they are different models, but there are small details that help differentiate and believe me, it is not a useless information, but at the time of purchase to know identify can help you find the jacket right!

1 – Bomber Jacket

The model has been changing with time, mainly in the region of the collar, moving from his lapel to the collar of similar material to that of cuffs. The traditional closing is by a zipper and the front pockets in the beginning were external flap closing, then went on to be two openings are diagonal, currently it is possible to find copies of the two types. The classic material is the leather, suede, or suede, however, nylon (with or without matelasse), gabardine and twill have become common because they are cheaper and also suitable for cooler temperatures.

Style: adventurer/military with a touch of urban.

More examples:

Note: the side pockets are becoming more popular than the old front with a tab (created in the 30’s) because of the tendency of the design more clean in men’s clothing.

…….

2 – Varsity Jacket

What draws more attention, and differs from the bomber are his sleeves, in most cases in the color and fabric different from the back. The traditional closing is also different, made by cotões pressure. Can be made of nylon with leather sleeves, wool with leather sleeves or even in a single material, but it will hardly be all a single color. Another differential are the stripes on the collar and cuffs that give it a footprint much more sporty and young to jacket.The embroidery with letters in gothic and coats are optional refer to the colleges and teams the americans, but that may have to sit out on the models to be more discreet.

Style: young and relaxed, with influence sports reference and retro.

More examples:

Note: note that the sleeves more clear are common, but you’ll also find jackets varsity with sleeves that are darker than the back in some cases.

3 – Barracuda Jacket

Extremely similar to the bomber, has as main feature his collar/collar that can be worn all raised to protect the neck and the pockets transverse closed by buttoned flap. The cuff can be elastic or common. Despite the different name and strong is just a variation of the bomber. The tissues the most common are: twill, cotton, suede, and nylon (with or without matelasse), but on some occasions can be found in leather.

Style: Urban, sophisticated and relaxed.

More examples:

Note: in order to recognize easily just look at the collar, it makes all the difference!

Tip from the author:

You have the laziness of these classifications are all to pieces like, alright, no problem call the bomber most of the models, because in the end they are variations on the same theme, but it is good to know how to distinguish to not take pictures at the time of purchase or when you need to search for one of these jackets on the internet.

It is also nice to note how the materials and the details, “pulling” the piece more to one style than the other, just change the type of leather to be able to something more adventure, add stripes to a reference sport and play in a clean design for a look urban and cool.
