Maison Margiela’s take on the varsity jacket has been crafted from a technical nylon with a press stud closure to the front, welt pockets to either side and ribbed collar, cuffs and hem.

Features include

· 100% Nylon Shell

· Press Stud Closure

· Welt Pockets to either side

· Ribbed Collar, Cuffs & Hem

· Made in Italy

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.

  1. I like the style of the jacket, it seems like it’s more for men than women. But it’s the price that gets me. I mean it’s just a jacket. There aren’t any real special features about it other than who it was made by. It isn’t waterproof or water resistant, at least the post didn’t mention that. I just can’t justify spending that kind of money on a jacket when I could get on for much less and buy other things that I really need.

      Hi, i agree the price is very much at the top end, and would be a major investment for most. At the moment its not reduced, hopefully it will one day and more can afford to buy it.
