The varsity jacket has been a staple of the American male’s wardrobe since the Eisenhower Administration. Its sporty, unfussy aesthetic makes it indispensable as a piece of casual outerwear, and Nike‘s version, called the Destroyer, remains true to the spirit of the garment, but technological updates courtesy of the ACG design lab make it superior to the letterman jackets of yore. Breathable yet water repellent Tech Wool protects the wearer from the elements, while Thermore fill provides warmth without bulk. A bonded zip chest pocket provides a nice design detail but also functions as storage for small items, while diamond-quilted nylon lining in the sleeves provide added comfort. Available in three different colors, the Destroyer Tech Wool Jacket is available now through Nikestore.com.
