Modeled after the collegiate tradition of organized sports, the Award Jacket dates back to 1865, when the original team letter was sewn onto a flannel football team shirt. As a symbol of athletic achievement a team player was presented with a varsity letter to be sewn onto a sweater or jacket, usually composed of team colors and adorned with emblems and insignias to showcase team spirit. Color is not uniform and may have been rubbed off on certain areas due to distressing process.

  1. A Beauty Review by Little Jacket Thief
    Quality
    Value

    This jacket is well-constructed and represents good value for money. The color choices have just the right vintage feel and, as Lineman's review notes, care has been taken to not go over the top with aging effects.

    I won't speak to the sizing because I am actually a small female who is happy with this jacket's genuine "boyfriend" fit.

    I do, however, want to highlight the outstanding customer service that Cockpit USA offered me.

    When they noticed that there were stains on my original jacket selection, Cockpit USA did not ship the product. Instead, they immediately advised me of the situation and offered a great solution.

    As these jackets are a final sale, Cockpit USA could just as have easily taken the low road and shipped the defective product without a word. Happily, that did not happen and this company demonstrated its commitment to customer care in a truly meaningful way.

    For this act of integrity (thank you, Stan), this company deserves praise and customer loyalty. Well done! (Posted on 3/30/2018)

  2. An American Classic Review by Lineman
    Quality
    Value

    Get one of these while you can. A genuine, American made, horsehide letterman's jacket, with period details like small imperfections that add to the character of the jacket and are true to history.... if you were were an athlete in high school or college during the WWII or immediate Postwar eras, you were grateful to be issued any jacket at all, with the understanding that rush production was the norm, and Military leather jacket needs took priority. A slim fit, but not excessively so. I am a broad shouldered 6', and the Red L and Navy 2XL both fit me comfortably, with the 2XL with room for a hoodie underneath. Highest quality leather and craftsmanship. (Posted on 8/7/2017)
