Majestic Athletic Varsity Jackets
American label Majestic Athletic have hit UK stores with their on trend collection of sport-inspired varsity jackets.
The brand was established in 1976 in Tampa, Florida, and they have been producing baseball-inspired sportswear ever since – gaining their first licensing agreement with MIB (Major League Baseball) in 1985 and by 2005, securing the contract to be the sole provider of the authentic jerseys for all thirty MLB teams.
The varsity jacket has become a modern wardrobe staple and a fundamental piece for helping create that highly desirable American collegiate aesthetic. It’s no wonder that the outerwear style is seasonally reworked by both high fashion designers and the high street alike. However, due to their exclusive licensing agreements with all the major American sports leagues, the jackets produced by Majestic Athletic are the real deal, lending each piece an authenticity that you will just not find with other brands.
The jackets are available in a variety of colour ways, which represent different teams, and come in wool and nylon options with contrasting sleeves. The colour options are completely classic, with red, black, blue and marl grey options coming complete with crisp white sleeves and patches/numbers relevant to their team, giving each a unique sense of character and identity.
A highlight is the Redskins design, which features in a vibrant red body with white sleeves. The style includes chest patches and tipped collar/cuff details in red and yellow, which complement the jacket’s body.
Majestic Athletic jackets are priced from £85 and available in store at Harrods, Urban Outfitters stores later in the year and online at zalando.co.uk.
