adidas Inspires Self-Expression In Sport With New Varsity-Style Jacket


adidas unveils the VRCT jacket, a fresh take on the classic varsity look that celebrates team pride and self-expression. Paying homage to the traditional letterman jacket, VRCT features a customizable patch that invites athletes to show the world who they are.

Designed to be worn before and after training, VRCT takes reworks an iconic design for a classic bomber aesthetic with a sleek, modern fit.

Featuring flexible, lightweight material, the jacket offers maximum freedom of movement, while a soft double-knit fabric enables year-round wearability.

To inspire creativity and self-expression, the VRCT jacket features a classic adidas ‘A’ team patch that can be interchanged and personalized.

Athletes can create their own message, or choose a word selected by some of adidas’ leading creators including James Harden, Denise Schindler, Mette Towley, Paulo Dybala, Ning Zetao and Stefanos Tsitipas.

Each athlete worked collaboratively with adidas to create a patch that represents what they stand for and their own personal story.
