The term “jacket” classify a wide range of menswear’s items. But this generalization doesn’t do justice to its silhouette, which varies depending on the style of the jacket, associated with completely different aesthetic. One of the most famous is certainly the baseball jacket, the sportiest of all. Born in the American school system, it has been consolidated within the worldwide male wardrobe.
Traditionally, the baseball jacket (also known as varsity jacket) consists of the boiled wool chest decorated with patches, symbols and writings dedicated to the sport, the fastener snap, ribbed cuffs and waistband, leather sleeves in contrast and a loose fit. From this model many contemporary versions have benne developed: in this outfit I show the baseball jacket by Banggood, a cleaner version than the traditional ones. The patches go away discovering the black wool chest; the leather sleeves (not contrasting) remain, but they have a quilted effect; and also remain the ribbed cuffs, but the waistband disappears, creating a more minimalist design.
To create a look that reflected a relaxed casual style, I paired the jacket with a white t-shirt with black print slightly oversized by Henrik Vibskov, a superskinny jeans by Cheap Monday, and a reference to the ’90s with the platform shoes by T.U.K.. As an accessory I have taken the concept “baseball” wearing a leather cap by D by D.
