Letterman jackets have been a tradition in the United States and other countries for centuries. They are typically given to high school students for their participation in sports, band, or other academic events. If a student makes the "Varsity" team for any of these activities, they typically receive a varsity letter for this achievement.
The sport most associated with these letterman jackets is football. But it is becoming much more popular in other sports like basketball, wrestling, baseball, and soccer. Letter sweaters preceded jackets, but they are making a comeback. They are cheaper than a jacket, and can be a great alternative.
The downside to all of this is that people often buy jackets, go to school, and realize that everyone else has basically the same one. That's why have introduced custom letterman jackets. By allowing our customers to customize and design their own apparel, it is much easier to stand out from the crowd and be unique. So go check out our jacket builder and create your own today!
