I found this incredible jacket the last day that I was in Ohio. Like I was about 2 hours away from having to get on a plane, but happened to find an Antique mall near the airport. Score. I was devastated by the amount of amazing things I found that I had no hope of fitting into my carry-on. But when I spied this jacket from a local school in the 50s, I knew it had to come home with me. I was just gonna have to wear it on the plane!
Letterman jackets have been steadily gaining popularity, and while current jackets have variations like denim, and leather, this old-school wool jacket struck a real chord with me. The name DAN is embroidered on the front, and I like to imagine what the guy who owned this jacket was like. Was he a rebel? A good kid? Star athlete? Who knows, but it's fun to think of.
