I’m not that familiar with Maison Margiela, I’ve heard of the label, and certainly I’ve heard of John Galliano, the labels creative director, but when I was squinting on End’s site today and came across this jacket I had to take a closer look. The label was started by Martin Maison Margiela back in 1988. The Varsity Jacket comes in black but I much prefer the Military Green. It is offset beautifully by the orange collar cuffs and hem. The design is very simple, the cuffs and hem seem larger than usual by a good inch or so, but that’s not a bad thing. I can just imagine Jonas Nay wearing something like this in Deutschland 83, it has that classic feel to it.
This jacket retails at £729 from End, definitely at the higher end of the scale, but I don’t think you would be disappointed in it. Why would you want to wear a Maison Mergiela replica when you could get the real thing.
