The letterman jacket made a tenacious comeback to the fashion scene this past Fall/Winter season, with designers from every fashion capital revamping the high school outerwear staple.

Letterman jackets were first seen at the men's shows in Paris where Louis Vuitton, Givenchy Homme and Paul Smith decked their jackets in complete leather and re-introduced a new type of collar.

The comeback continued at Proenza Schouler, where designers Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough added different cuts and textures to the jacket, even adding fur trims around some of the collars.
