I remain unconvinced by any of those pictures. It's not a good look for an adult.

It looks too 'preppy' to me. As previously said, too juvenile. Even the model looks silly.

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.
No, they do not get away with it, they look stupid wearing stupid things, them being famous does not change that.

Are you saying you want people to think you're a teenager? Is that the goal?

Interesting. I wonder if ladies dislike the preppy look.


I LOVE the preppy look.


Here are some examples:

No, not at all.


However, I did have fun with a brand ambassador at Whole Foods Market once. He was giving out samples of beer. He offered me one and I drank it. I then asked if it was ok for underage people to drink the samples. He went in a frenzy and panicked. LOL!

I am a fan of age appropriate preppy - as long as you do not look like you are pretending to be someone you aren’t. It has to seem like your look and you are comfortable.

Nevertheless, no. You don't have to don a flannel blazer or anything, and you can certainly keep things casual, but a letter jacket? Even if you bought it on a lark, you wouldn't want to wear it past one season, I don't think. So, it wouldn't be a good investment.
