Vintage Trends for Fall...Varsity/Letterman Jackets & Sweaters

Like it or not Summer is all but a memory! Goodbye linen, seersucker, cotton & chiffon, we'll see you again in the spring....But fear not, a new season also means new clothes, yay!...So say hello to your old friends cashmere, leather & tweed! It also means a big change at the shop, and after some late-night re-stocking and merchandising we're just about ready for Fall. Stay tuned over the coming weeks as we'll be sharing with you some of the great vintage Fall/Winter finds we've collected over the past year....

We blogged about Varsity jackets & Letterman cardigans a couple of years back, but the American prep look is more popular than ever for Fall/Winter 2011 into Spring 2012, so we are re-visiting the subject for the first of our Fall trend posts. Take a look through any fashion magazines right now, or around shops as diverse as Bergdorf Goodman, Topshop & Target, and you'll see their racks are brimming with retro American sportswear themed clothing. Of course nothing beats owning an authentic Vintage varsity jacket or Letterman sweater....
