Just my opinion...
Still wearing the letter jacket is just sad
I would only wear the ring if it helps you in business. Depending on the school...some people find that an advantage.

Time to retire the jacket. Maybe a shadow box to display it. Liz

if you like it, then keep wearing it, if anyone gives you a hard time, just glare at them and say, "this is my girlfriends jacket!, you got something against lesbians"??

Hey that's just my opinion. You are a grown woman! Wear it with pride if you want to and to heck with what anybody else thinks. That is part of the fun of being out of high school and college! You one day realize you are a grown-up and can do whatever you want.

I liked the idea of the shadowbox with (not the jacket) but the letter, class ring, and any other special items that would be memorable to you and those years you acquired them. Life moves on, and these are special memories that you should keep but not allow to interfere with your future. Dump the jacket you'll outgrow it anyway.

Kelsie, ask yourself this question....'How many people do I see wearing Letter Jackets outside of Highschool/College?' Honestly speaking, personally, I haven't seen any. Although, if you don't want to stop wearing it, don't. If people don't like it...let 'em Talk To The Hand!!!

If you do end up retiring your jacket, have it cleaned first. Any body oils or perfumes, etc...left on the jacket can cause permanent staining or degrading of the material over time. As for the ring...I wore mine until I got to fat to wear it anymore. Which wasn't very long, actually. LOL

Hope that helped.

Boof
