The word “varsity” is used attributively in the U.S. and Canada to describe a sports team made up of talented older high school or college students. 

Only the best make it to a varsity team…and only the best of the best get to wear a VANSON LETTERMAN JACKET.  From the dual-close snap and zipper front, to the carefully hand-made self-edge knit used at the collar, wrists and waist…this is a true reflection of the youthful Vanson craft. 

Craft following function, self-edge knit waistband and cuffs are made from a single ply which keeps the knit from being folded, heavy and bulky. The result is a light and elegant elasticity that enhances the fit and comfort of the jacket. Self-edge waistbands are made one at a time, by hand in Minnesota.  Knitted flat on a slow machine, watched over by an experienced operator, controlled by punch-card type paper tapes, each piece is a little different from the next one. In contrast, modern knitting is done on ultra-fast circular, robotic machines which can spit out so many thousands of parts that the completed knit is sold by the pound.   

Cut in a slim and sophisticated fit, the VANSON LETTERMAN JACKET is an expression of achievement and success. Meticulously made, with special attention to every detail, every line and seam speaks to a high standard of quality and comfort. Everything about this handmade classic jacket speaks to a polished, urbane, confident lifestyle.

BLACK DEER-TANNED COW BODY + GOLDEN TAN SLEEVES
This naked deer-tanned leather is a throwback to the
1960s scene. This natural look and feel was part of the
deal. Coming out of San Francisco from such famous jacket
makers as East West Musical Instrument Company these naked
earth tone colors defined an era. We are pleased to be
able to reintroduce these colors. Just like the originals
these leathers will develop their own patina from use and
age.
.
Lighter colors will darken and spot with age and use.
All colors will be aged by sunlight.
Any care materials used should be very lightly applied
they may change the colors and appearance of the leather.

We are currently compiling our list of testimonials. We should have these posted soon.
