Modeled after the collegiate tradition of organized sports, the Award Jacket dates back to 1865, when the original team letter was sewn onto a flannel football team shirt. As a symbol of athletic achievement a team player was presented with a varsity letter to be sewn onto a sweater or jacket, usually composed of team colors and adorned with emblems and insignias to showcase team spirit. The Cockpit USA Award Jacket is the perfect recreation of the timeless tradition.
