Any fan of musical movies remembers the pinnacle moment of "Grease" when Danny trades in his black leather T-Birds jacket for a white sweater emblazoned with the red "R" of Rydell High after finding success on the track team. For high school and college athletes, a letterman sweater is a sign of accomplishment and pride. Particularly popular in the 1950s and 1960s, these sweaters represented the hard work of the athlete not just in getting on the team, but performing admirably enough to earn the coveted letter. Varsity sweaters distinguish the most advanced of athletes for the school, and often differ from lower-ranked teams with details such as additional stripes on the sleeves or pins added to the letters. The most common style of these sweaters is the cardigan version, but pullovers are also available. Give a meaningful gift with a sweater from a loved one's alma mater, or add authenticity to a theater or Halloween costume with a vintage sweater.
