The varsity trend is very much alive and kicking and I still think it’s adorable.
However none of the designer varsity varieties have come in a ‘J’ for “Jazzi” until now.
So my first thought when I saw this Jil Sander sweater was “OMG! A sweater with my inital!? It’s fate!” Sure, the ‘J’ in question, is obviously for Jil, but you get the idea.
Then I saw the $1,660 price tag and bowed my head in defeat. Foiled again.
Now, I’d take an “N” in NYLON pink, Faran would settle for a “D” for Duke or an “A” because it’s classic, but I’m left wondering… if not me, January Jones or our lovely intern Joelle, who is going to buy this Jil Sander sweater?
And I’d really like to know: would you buy varsity-wear with initials other than your own first, last name, or some other letter of note?
And should $1600 at least get you the option to personalize with your initial of choice? Or, alphabet aside, is the novelty (or irony) enough?
