Brooklyn Circus has been involved in many great projects and products over the years, yet we have to admit that their varsity jackets always interested us the most.

Inspired by the “City by the Bay” and the San Francisco 49ers, the jacket will officially release later this week, on December 7, 2012.

Newly available from CASH CA as a part of the menswear label’s Fall/Winter 2012 collection is its Spanish Stadium Jacket. An updated take on a classic varsity jacket, the piece offers wool construction with a contrasting body and sleeves, a buttoned placket, and two flapped patch pockets near the hem. Featuring an extra long ribbed collar and matching cuffs with contrasting stripes, the piece offers a button fastening for the collar – thus allowing it to be flipped down or extended upwards for added protection from the elements in especially harsh weather. Available in navy, black and beige, the Spanish Stadium Jacket can be purchased from Kazuki Kuraishi‘s Heather Grey Wall now for ￥71,400 JPY (approximately $888 USD). Source: honeyee.com
