The varsity jacket is one of the most coveted silhouettes this season. Honestly, part bomber tough, part peacoat class, what’s not to like? Of course, Nike picked up on the amazing duality and attraction of the varsity jacket all the way back in 2006 and decided to remake the American classic in highly technical details, breathing new utilitarian and style vibes into the sartorial basic. Adopting material from the Nike ACG (All Conditions Gear) cache, the new jacket features materials such as a two layer water-repellent body to shield its wearer from rain, snow, fog and frost; meanwhile it keeps warm in and cold out with Thermore fill and Sphere technology in the lining. Design wise, the NYC Destroyers jacket is kept New York cool in the city’s signature monochromatic black and white. Classic varsity jacket chenille embroidered patched the jacket’s loyalty to the Big Apple. The sole pop of color comes from a zip-up pocket on the chest which features an electric blue zipper. Don’t just be all-American, but add a New York touch and be specific with the NYC Destroyers Varsity Jacket which is available in an extremely limited run of 21, dropping tomorrow exclusively at Nike Sportswear 21 Mercer.
