Over the last few months, the influence the world of sport has over the fashion sector has become more and more apparent. Current menswear collections have included more and more athletic wear, with sweatshirts, hoodies and varsity jackets all making a comeback for the spring/summer 2012 season.
With this in mind, this Suede Front Jersey Varsity Jacket from Gucci immediately caught our wandering eye.
Putting their own unique spin on the sportswear trend, the brand have managed to utilise one of the key pieces of the season – the varsity jacket – and given the classic style a luxurious edge.
Through the carefully considered combination of materials and textures, Gucci have managed to set their garment apart from the masses on the market. Featuring a soft brown suede front section and navy cotton jersey material to the sleeves and back, this outerwear piece is not only comfortable but effortlessly stylish.
Other key features include: ribbed detailing, press stud fastenings and two front pockets.
Practical and versatile, this piece can be thrown on top of a number of different outfits. Whether you choose to dress it down with denim or chinos to channel a true American Prep look, or pair it with more formal structured pieces such as smart trousers and oxford shirt, this garment certainly won’t let you down.
