Raised by Wolves Lunar Cycle Varsity Jacket

Raised by Wolves Lunar Cycle Varsity Jacket - Fall 2012

From Montreal-based Raised by Wolves comes their Lunar Cycle Varsity Jacket for F/W ’12. Every year, it seems there’s always one standout varsity that catches everyone’s attention and we think this is 2012’s equivalent to GANT Rugger’s Homerun Jacket of 2010. The subtle and well-thought-out details on this one make it a must-have piece because we’re just not sure we’ll see one like it for quite sometime. It’s made in the good ol’ US of A by Ebbets Field Flannels and features felt appliqué patches and letterings. The melton wool body sits well with the leather sleeves while the interior of the body is Ripstop NyCo MultiCam lined.

Founded in 1987 by Tunisian born Designer Jean Touitou A.P.C. quickly gained a cult following among Parisians and New Yorker’s for its minimalist designs and high-quality Japanese selvage denim. The design hasn’t lost his touch over the years as the brand continues to innovate and deliver on everything that’s made A.P.C. what it is today.
