There are few pieces in the vintage sportswear world as sacred as the satin Starter jacket. The jacket was popularized in the 80’s & early 90’s as a stable on the sidelines and in the stands. Other brands like Chalkline and Swingster also got in the business of satin, retailing their own versions of the popular jacket style. During the 80’s & 90’s many fans customized their own satin jackets by embroidering a name or adding a patch to the sleeve.
At Rare Vntg, we wanted to continue the trend of customizing the satin jacket by putting our own spin on the classic garment. Drawing inspiration from the original Boston Celtics 1957 warm up jackets, we added numbers and patches designed to honor some of the most legendary players and moments of sports history. Each jacket tells a story. Each jacket represents a moment in history.
The entire collection of 40+ custom jackets will retail between $150-$300. They are set to release Black Friday exclusively on rarevntg.com
