Varsity letterman jackets...

  1. Do kids still wear them in your town? There was a write up in the paper the week about how the decline in letterman jackets is huge and now they are almost completely phased out in the central Florida area. I remember having mine in highschool and how it was considered a big deal 10 years ago. Maybe its the $200 dollar price tag. Who knows.
     
  2. theres one guy on teh floor below me who keeps wearing his highschool football one with his captain patch.

    Everyone makes fun of him and calls him QB
     
  3. I see a few around campus.
     
  4. Nope, only see them in TV shows.
     
  5. varsity kids in just about any thing that offered a letter at my high school got them.

    hardly MOST of them, but there were always a bunch. i always thought they looked pretty good, since our school's colors were red/white/blue (the jacket was mostly just white and blue), and they werent bad. even though i got letters in high school i never could justify getting one. my black leather > letter jacket <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
     
  6. Is he out of highschool?

    If so, that is complete #%$atry.
     
  7. yeh, hes in college.
     
  8. we have a school of about 200 and more than 100 have them. more than half of our freshman class has them for christ's sake
     
  9. i taped my letter to the inside of my locker instead of putting it on a jacket, the jacket was way omre than i would want anyone to spend on something that just shows off that your in a sport.
     
  10. As soon as one graduates from high school, the jacket becomes completely lame to wear. I couldn't justify the investment.

    Still, there are kids on campus who wear them. I pity them.
     
  11. people wore them in high school...
     
  12. I'm glad we don't have t hem. When we leave school we get rugby jerseys, which while cooler, I've still never worn.
     
  13. You might as well hang a sign around your neck that says 'giant douche' if you wear one around.
     
  14. he must be living in a pretty gay dorm, because in a normal dorm people would be making fun of fat computer nerds instead.
     
  15. the ones at my school arent the typical letterman jackets, they are sweet fleeces and or other nice jackets
     
  16. if my school had them in highschool i would definately have worn it.
     
  17. not after that vid where a nerd threw scissors at a guy. uugh
     
  18. No, anyone in a varsity jacket gets made fun of. You've got to be a complete douche to wear a high school varsity jacket in college.
     
  19. Varsity jackets look lame.
     
  20. I bet you everyone who says they are lame/gay couldnt get one because they are useless.
     
  21. I bet you wear a varsity out to the local high school hangouts to try to pick up preteens telling them how you're a legend at your old high school and the only reason you live with your mom is so you can save up money to buy a boat and sail around the world.
