Rare Vntg Custom Satin Jacket Release Black Friday

rare vntg custom satin jackets

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.

Rare Vntg Custom Satin Jackets

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.

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.
