A/W 13 Trend: Baseball Jackets
Yes, I’m sure you are probably already aware of the baseball jacket trend and probably own a dozen of them by now. But the change from last summers influnction is that things have upgraded. Last year was about the more well-known style of high school baseball jacket in varying colours and your favourite teams initial (or the one the brand told you, you are going support) adorning the left breast.
This year, detailing has come to the forefront.
The style is still the same but the catwalks were showcasing the baseball jacket in a different light. New fabrics such as silk and suede were introduced teamed with knitted panels, bold patterns and metallic detailing. Add to this a more tailored fit which will make it easier to be smartened up with, for example a slim fit formal trouser and a buttoned down shirt.
So overall think Ryan Gosling in Drive rather than a generic jock from a 50’s high school movie.
