Looking like a high school student isn't going to get you far in the dating market if you're searching. Best to look your age. Leave those jackets for the high school age.

My 23 year old daughter said "Ew, no." Not appropriate for anyone unless you're in high school, and you are on a team. The other one posted is nice.

I don't think there's a age limit when it comes to letterman jackets.

The picture posted by Jade408 is basic and boring. No originality to it at all. I hate dressing like that.


Maybe it's a region thing. I'm from New York City, btw.

You can do one like the green one. But the letterman patches are terrible. Iíve seen some great bombers that arenít plain from floral to textured and other stuff. But it is a delicate dance between inspired and replica.

No. When you're a grownup you need to wear grownup clothes.

Um, I'm a white guy, almost 50, currently wearing sweatpants and a college T-shirt as a type this and I live in suburban Kansas. (I used to live in Chicago)

That being said,

1) I knew you lived in NYC before I got to this post.
2) If you're male and trying to look young, really young....well anyone with a clue knows why and whom your target partners are and I frankly wish you all the best there.
3) Knowing all that, you're best off developing yourself physically and mentally instead of agonizing over dressing like a really young guy to attract those that you are interested in attracting.

I'm a Mod cut. dresser but was one of the few straight guys in my gym when I lived in Chicago and let me tell you, some gym time wins every time. If I missed the mark, this point was true with the ladies as well.

If I showed you pics of me wearing it I think you would change your mind.
So why'd you even ask ... (rhetorical, please)

You aren't a celebrity. Celebrities can get away with stuff we regular folks cannot.

If you wore that around here, men would relentlessly ask you what you lettered in. If you look young for your age, then wearing that jacket would get you accidentally sent to detention. Just don't.
