Ryan briefly mentioned Gant Rugger's F/W 2011 incarnation of their instant classic Homerun Varsity and after seeing it in person this past Saturday I'm here to back up his sentiments. Basically, if you are the kind of guy who likes the varsity jacket look you should start saving up some money now. That's how good this new version is (I'm calling it Homerun 3.0 in my head). The solid wool body of the past Homerun jackets has been replaced by an incredible red herringbone wool weave and the beige leather sleeves feature a new treatment that takes this jacket to a level few varsities have previously been. On top of all that, this version is unstructured (as is a lot of the new F/W 2011 outerwear) making it easily the most comfortable option out there. With the recent explosion in varsity jacket popularity lots of brands have been trying to rework things. I am here to say that no one is doing a better job than Chris & Co. and after seeing F/W 2011 I can say, without a doubt, that Gant Rugger is coming as hard as ever with all their new stuff. Thanks to Tenue de Nimes for taking way better spy pics than I ever could.
