Hi guys, this is my first post on the forum but I've been reading the site for a while.
I've had a varsity jacket for a while (since christmas) but never really worn it. It feels a bit "flashy", and when I compare it to the images of varsity jackets that there was an article on it seems a bit, I don't know, shouty? I've linked to some images of it on a shop website, what do you guys think of it?

It is pretty full-on, so the rest of the outfit needs to be pretty subtle and classic. You are going for a preppy / varsity look with this.
I would wear it with a plain white t shirt, sand coloured chinos and some tan loafers. Some kind of smart, classic hairstyle is an important part of this look too.
This will look really good if you get it right- the key is simplicity in the rest of the outfit.
I have a hard time wearing my varsity jacket too. I have this one:

You either go full on Prep or stick to casual wear with varsity jackets, there isn't really much of an in between unless you go for something that is really subtle and purposely muted.
I'd love that too. Pins, what brand is it?
i quite like this one by river island, they have one with white sleeves on their ad which looks really nice.

Thanks! Would you say to wear it open, or buttoned up with just a few undone?
Probably open but you can do it up if necessary. Just whatever feels right at the time.
As I'm also after a varsity/baseball jacket I thought I'd hijack the OP's thread rather than starting a completely new one. Which of these two do you guys prefer?:

Navy Brown Wool Bomber - Casual Jackets - Mens Jackets & Coats - Clothing - TOPMAN
I like both of them, but there's a pretty major price difference between the two. For a River Island item it's pretty expensive, does anyone have any idea what the quality would be like?
