Be Cool Forever, Wear The Ace Hotel's New Varsity Jacket
Ok, we're a little worried that the Ace Hotel may just be getting a little too cool for school. Wait, what are we talking about? They've always been that way. The only difference now is that you can show off your allegiance to the hip brand by wearing one of their new "Letterman jackets".
Retailing at around $300, the jackets are (surprise!) handcrafted in Washington, by a 73-year-old family-run company, using pure Melton wool from Oregon. Got all that? Oh, and they look pretty good, too.
A tag on the inside of the jacket says it's made from "100% virgin wool" and has the words 'Ace Hotel' written on it. Apparently, the Washington-based company that Ace hired (Centralia Knitting Mills) has been making custom varsity jackets since the 1930s, and still uses the same knitting machines.
The jackets are limited edition (quick, hurry!) and are available at Ace New York or the online shop.
See you at the homecoming!
