I live in Iowa City, I think I'm going to get one of those UofI letterman jackets and take it to T-galaxy or one of those places that will add lettering and just get something terribly expletive on the back. like maybe "Rapist"? any other ideas?
[ QUOTE=kingcy;1326837]Wear a sweatshirt underneath and you would be ok. They would work alone for 30ish weather but below that you would want more.
Just confirming with personal experience. Also, i hit the quote button then got a phone call and distracted while i was typing my response and didn't notice your next post. For the Baylor game I had a long sleeve t-shirt under my letter jacket and was just fine
Anyone know where I can buy an Iowa State Letterman's type jacket? You know, the ones with read leather sleeves and wool body. I have seen Hawkeye ones that look great if I were a hawk fan, but never a cyclone one....except on isu athletes.
Don't do it... Most actual lettermen don't even wear them after they graduate unless it's a special event or something...

I always thought they were great with a hoodie underneath.

I still have three of my father's ISU letterman jackets. Its from the early 50s and actually looks identical to the ones they still wear. All of his are gold on the inside and are reversable. Looking at pictures from growing up I'm noticing that he wore them a lot ... more than he wore his Harvard garbs.
I'll admit that I don't like the practice, but I think I've seen something like what you are looking for. The difference would be that the sleeves weren't cardinal (more tan leather) which was the giveaway that it wasn't the real deal. Unfortunately, I don't recall where I saw it.
I wonder what would happen if ISU allowed for someone to sell some sort of knock-off with the I-state logo/tan sleeves instead of the Gold I with cardinal sleeves? I wouldn't buy one as it wouldn't be like my authentic one that is a little tight on me these days.
