SF group buy poll: Skookum Varsity Jacket.

post #1 of 95
Thread Starter 
I'm already having a few issues with the poll. Choose: sleeve type (raglan vs set-in); jacket composition (wool/leather); closure (zip, etc.); trim; pocket trim; embroidery or not (like "made for styleforum" or something); and, probably most importantly, colors.

Most people have probably looked at the "Skookum Varsity's" thread, but just in case--there's been some discussion on getting a group buy together for a custom varisty/letterman jacket from Centralia Knitting Mills/Skookum.

Jo3B pulled some nice examples from rakuten/other sources. There seems to be plenty of interest, but some disagreement on design. I talked with Centralia last week, and although I didn't get a lot of details (sizing/measurements; prices for specific updgrades; specific colors available), it seems a basic jacket will run between $100-$150 excluding shipping. The minimum order for a single spec/design is six.

In order to get some consensus here, let's try a poll. Just pick your preferred choice, not every choice you'd be mildly interested in. Assuming this generates some sort of majority-preferred jacket, we'll get a real interest check and I'll get real prices. I reserve the right to wash my hands of this if you guys pick an ugly jacket.

Design by democracy FTW. Or FTL. Hope we don't end up with a frankenjacket.

Examples below, stolen from the other threads.

All wool, burgundy with gray raglan sleeves (SF colors lol), snaps, striped trim

Wool with leather raglan sleeves, all olive (I guess?), buttons, plain trim

Wool with leather raglan sleeves, navy/cream, snaps, navy trim, leather pocket trim, extra zip pockets at chest and sleeve

Wool with leather raglan sleeves, burgundy heather wool, zip, zip pockets

Wool with leather raglan sleeves, navy with cream, buttons, cream pocket trim, burgundy trim

APC and Visvim versions (not skookum) with set-in sleeves, note zip closure on visvim



GAP denim varsity from the early 90s.

Uh, yes--just take whatever we get to your local trophy shop. That's where edge kids hang out anyway.

The Wisdom of Crowds tells me that this poll will result in an objectively perfect jacket. Oh, also want the fold down/shawl collar.

+2. In the end I think i'd go Burgundy color over olive. How many times do you see/get to wear a burgundy jacket. More unique. My $0.02

Love the burgundy with leather sleeves, love the shawl collar. I'd be open to whatever regarding zipper/buttons/snaps.

I like the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th ones best. I'm obviously partial to leather sleeves. I was thinking navy and grey, but I do have a number of jackets in those colors already, so maybe a different color might be better. Oh and yes I love the shawl collar as well.

The Visvim jacket in SF colors (haha) with snaps instead of a zipper would be perfection.

What's the pricepoint going to be around?
