Our three varsity jacket silhouettes: the Set-in sleeve style, the Raglan sleeve style, and the fingertip-length Stadium style. Cut to size from either our classic varsity patterns, or our more modern slim-fit (or fashion-sit) patterns, these are the foundations of Settlemier’s Jackets. For individual high-school achievements, car club memberships, clothing-line signature pieces, corporate give-aways and more, these three styles can by fully customized and embellished to provide the perfect American varsity look.
All Settlemier’s jackets are constructed with 100% wool trim here at the Portland factory, in colors dyed and stocked to match our body/sleeve wool. These bands of trim are knitted on our two1950’s-era machines, which have passed down within the family. Our wide range of stripe patterns (14+ standard options to choose from) are programmed into punch-cards. These cards are then “read” by the knitting machine to perform a precisely-timed series of mechanical movements, pulling yarn into place with hundred of needles, eventually forming a beautifully-weaved piece of trim. A computer before the computer! We then hand-cut each piece to perfectly fit each jacket.
Settlemier’s Jackets offers many ways to turn one of our classic varsity jacket silhouettes into something even more unique. Collar styles, shoulder inserts, hoods, pocket styles, lining upgrades, jacket closures and more are available to choose from.
With all the options shown above you can make a varsity jacket that perfectly matches your own personal/regional style.
