On My Retro Ish !!! : Starter Jackets

"Yo! Where you get that jacket from?"

Starter jackets represented cool. It didnt matter what team you had but how you rocked that bad boy. With a fresh snapback cap to match you were official. In the winter with the lack of insulation you had to bundle up. But at least you looked fly! Right? At the height of their popularity Starter jackets were an ultimate jack move. NCAA teams like Georgetown Hoyas, UNLV Running Rebels, and Miami Hurricanes held high status. The cool cats had multiple teams while the regular dudes rocked that one Starter literally to death. If you never owned one you wouldnt understand. Real heads recognize.
