Introducing The “Captains Jacket” An Exclusive Vintage Yankees Jacket by Rare VNTG

Rare VNTG New york yankees derek jeter captains jacket starter

Once in a blue moon baseball fans get to witness a talent like Derek Jeter. After his 20th Major League season, Jeter hung up his spikes for good, retiring as the Yankees all-time leader in games played, hits, doubles, stolen bases, times on base, at bats, and plate appearances. His accolades don’t stop there; The Captain also won 5 World Series Titles, 5 Gold Glove Awards and made the All Star Team 14 times during his illustrious career in pinstripes.

Rare VNTG has chosen to honor Jeter with a high quality custom creation, “The Captains Jacket”. The jackets are all original 90’s Starter Satin’s, and feature Jeter’s #2 sewn on the back. They also include an Authentic 2000 World Series patch on the sleeve. The 2000 Subway Series was the only time Derek Jeter won a World Series MVP in his career.

Introducing: Rare VNTG’s Vintage Fit Grid

Rare VNTG vintage outfit grid

In late 2012, Dennis Todisco conceived the idea for “Outfit Grid”; a platform for men’s fashion lovers to showcase their daily outfit on social media by using the hashtag #outfitgrid. The idea is simple, lay your daily attire down tastefully on the floor and snap a picture, if you’re lucky you’ll be selected as the day’s top outfit and be showcased officially by Outfit Grid.

Outfit grid has become a huge success with over 275,000 instagram followers! Rare VNTG frequently participates in the daily challenge and has even taken home a daily title. We love the concept so much, we’re inviting you to post up vintage sportswear inspired outfit’s with the hashtag #vintagefitgrid on instagram & twitter.

Our first installment of #vintagefitgrid features a Vintage Coogi sweater, paired with Supreme Camels Shorts, Nike x Supreme Trainer Sneakers, A Rare VNTG x Starter 1980 Olympic snapback hat, Bape x Built iPhone case & a vintage Fendi Sunglasses case.

On 1/18, Rare Vintage Wear (with the help of few close friends) invaded the 2014 Refresh PGH Winter Shoe Expo with loads of vintage clothing, jerseys, hats, and collectables. The event was a HUGE success; we would like to thank everyone from the Refresh Pittsburgh team for hosting the event and of course, everyone who came out and supported Rare Vintage Wear!

The event boosted 50+ vendors and by the end of the day, over 1,200 Pittsburgh area sneakerheads paraded through the Irish Center sporting their favorite sneakers. Rare Vintage Wear had a birds-eye view of the event from our location on-stage, and let me tell you it was JAM PACKED!

Many customers enjoyed RVW’s large variety of vintage Champion NBA jerseys, along with our vintage Starter and North Face jackets. Our custom Vintage Chicago Blackhawks Starter jacket was the talk of the town, and quickly found a new home along with the extremely popular Charlotte Hornets satin jacket.

All in all, the weekend was a huge success! We met a lot of great people and networked with some other great up-and-coming brands. Take a look at the photo gallery below and look out for future collaborations between Rare Vintage Wear and Refresh PGH!

After the season-ending sale comes to a close, Supreme heads are briefly left with a void in their lives until Spring/Summer 2014 kicks off. Fear not, we’ve got some leads on the fresh new gear set to drop in 2014.

Supreme dropped their traditional teaser image earlier this week depicting a leather snapback, Playboy jersey and exotic “S” pattern jacket/pants. The hype on the jersey has already begun to rise!
