'Batik' Varsity Jackets

from Dutch designer Sophie Vom Scheidt

With so many designers making college jackets from Balenciaga (unbeleivably, it was quite dry) to Cahart, you need to go a lil further to stand out.
For those that don't know what Batik is, ill explain it briefly, its an Indonesian fabric and pattern which was stolen by the Dutch who tried to mass produce it and sell it back to them, which inevitably failed....somehow it ended up in Africa where it is still revered as traditional costume. :)
its also reversible, nice
