Jackets 101

If you who are unsure about the terms we use, our Letter Jacket 101 page shows pictures that should help.

Award Letter – Each school has a specific Award Letter for each jacket.  You can not change or alter the Award Letter in any way.  All jackets will come with an Award Letter.

Insert – This is what you “Letter” in.  It is either a symbol or word.  The school tells us what each student letters in and every jacket will have an Insert.  You can “letter” in multiple activities/sports.  You do not get to choose what insert you get, the school decides that.

Byron Collar and Knit Collar – Most jackets come with a Byron Collar. The school decides what style collar you get and you do not get to change this (unless you order a Sailor Collar).


Sailor Collar – This is an optional collar that any student can get.  It is an extra $20. If ordering a Sailor Collar, you must notify the sales rep at the time of the fitting. Sailor collars can not be added after the jacket has been ordered.
