1. Varsity Jr.

    The biggest trend in men’s outerwear this year is athletically inspired jackets. Baseball jackets, varsity jackets, and letterman’s jackets are all trending.

    And athletic jackets are catching on for boys because they’re fashionable and have an everyday practicality.

    Check out this jacket by Guess: 

    It’s a great example of classic letterman style.  The contrasting sleeves, striped trim, snap closure, and patches are all traditional details of an athletic jacket. The embroidery on the back adds a splash of modern flair to this piece. A jacket like this can take a simple jeans and T look to the next level.

    Pelle Pelle has infused this varsity jacket with a healthy dose of their urban style:

    The contrast between the dark greys and blacks is muted. The patches are more pronounced and stylized. And yet it retains some traditional elements like the trimmed welt pockets and a varsity jacket shape.  

    For something a little more weather resistant, check out this Rocawear baseball jacket: 

    Teal detailing is extremely trendy right now. The sleek, synthetic exterior is the perfect companion to dark denim. Home run!
