    Kind of looks like a varsity jacket without the jerseycloth sleeves.

    Looks like the sort of thing that could be had for a pittance in the sort of store that has barred up windows in the evening and endless variations of baseball caps.

    As an added bonus, you could probably hook up a Snowman airbrushed T-shirt next door.

    Looks like the leather jackets all of the Polish Hoodlums wear in Williamsberg and Greenpoint!. Purchased from the local Leather World store owned by a shady character who drives a tricked out 97 Beemer 740 with scrached up fenders.

    Not a cool jacket.

    Okay, I don't like the jacket either, but the knocks are uncalled for.

    Try any urban styled store. This type of leather varsity jacket is pretty common. I would guess that it is Avirex as well, but plenty of manufacturers make them.

    Sorry, but sometimes a little honesty saves people from an aesthetic tragedy.

    Roots here in Canada puts out alot of varsity leathers like that one. (Not sure if they are in the US) Leather is pretty good quality and they can be had at pretty good discount if you look out for sales.

    They will also do a custom one in your choice of leather and can make it in your desired sleeve length.

    Whoops, forgot about Roots. Yes, def. a step up from most Varsity jackets, and pretty reasonably priced too And they are in the States (they actually have a shop in the Beverly Hills Golden Triangle area, which I find funny.

    Probably wouldn't be a bad looking jacket minus the elastic.

    So you're just looking for a jacket with a stand up collar? I'm sure that can be done.

    You could always take a jacket you already have and just stand the collar up. That would seem like the most logical thing to do in this situation.
