Who remembers having one of these? I certainly don’t because I never did have one. Mom and dad didn’t want to spend a hundred bucks for a jacket that I’d outgrow. So I had the luxury of seeing my other friends have these kick ass jackets. The starter jacket was a popular trend. Especially if you lived in cold climates. It not only kept you warm but you managed to look cool in the process. I remember seeing all sorts of Starter Jackets. They had college ones, nfl, mlb, nhl, nba, and I think that is it. But the popular ones were definitely the Michigan one. Back in the hey day when the Fab 5 were cool. I saw a few people rocking the 49ers coat thanks to Jerry Rice and Joe Montana days. I know of people that had the Charlotte Hornets starter jacket because of the cool colors. Now while they were awesome to rock when going out you had to be careful of those individuals that abused their Starter jackets. You know who you are!! I know that with that Kangaroo-esque pouch, you could put some Rain-Blo, Nerds, Coke, or whatever tickled your fancy and just walk out the door. The jackets were just so huge that you couldn’t notice the bulge from stolen property. Ahh good memories indeed!!
So here is to all you fans of Starter jackets!! Tell me about what kind of Starter jacket you owned or always wanted!!
