Varsity Jackets Go Chic: United Sport Fashion Debuts in Glamour Magazine

New Product Line Jumps Out in Front of One of 2011's Top Trends

FAIRFIELD, NJ--(Marketwire - December 15, 2010) -  United Sport Apparel, a leading manufacturer of high school varsity outerwear, announced the launch of a new line of varsity-inspired jackets aimed at fashion's sweetspot -- women 18 to 35. The spinoff line, dubbed "United Sport Fashion," made an immediate splash in the January 2011 issue of Glamour. 

Available directly to consumers at unitedsportfashion.com, the flagship products include a fun and flirty pair of wool varsity jackets (with optional varsity letter), as well as the bold satin lightweight jacket featured in Glamour's "8 Key Pieces for 2011."

"We've been doing varsity since varsity was born," said VP Karen Morgan, touting the company's 70-year history. "But we spotted a trend when we started receiving orders from outside our traditional customer base. Fashion-minded women wanted this classic American look too. The result is retro cool for the millennial set."

"To be singled out in Glamour was a major coup," continued Morgan. "Being featured alongside giants like Tommy Hilfiger and American Apparel® was an honor. It's also a statement that we aim to define one of the hottest trends for 2011." 

The satin jacket lists for $89.95 and the wool jackets start at $199.95. All jackets are made in the USA of high quality materials. To view the United Sport Fashion jacket line, visit www.unitedsportfashion.com, or call 1-800-736-7342 for more information or to place an order.
