The varsity jacket's undying ubiquity is still holding on strong, which is a good enough reason to tuck it away in the closer until it's safe to wear it again. Instead, revert back to the classic bomber jacket: utilitarian and more manly than the school-themed varsity, the bomber is a no brainer zip-up that can stand the test of trends. See ten styles after the jump that'll keep you warm and not looking exactly like everyone else.
