College jacket? Letterman jacket? Varsity jacket? Not only has there been a debate about the proper name of this clothing item depending on who you ask; some have differing opinions on its popularity as well. Some say that the varsity jacket has been brought back to life, while others say that it has never really left.

One thing is certain though. The fashion world has seen a fair share of pop-ups in different AW12 campaigns. Noted designer Thom Brown crafted a wool-and-leather rendition to help redefine the preppy, all-American look.

Warm, lightweight, and durable, varsity jackets present a great outerwear option for the cool winds of autumn.

While already a couple of years old, we love how hip-hop connoisseur and fashion icon Mos Def (now known as Yasiin Bey) rocked a black and navy blue varsity jacket. He cleverly combined this with a matching colored scarf and a brown newsboy cap. Simple, yet very stylish!
