    I saw a kid today wearing a letterman jacket and it struck me as odd because I couldn't remember the last time I saw one. They seem to have gone out of fashion, but were a big deal when I was in high school.

    Did you letter in anything in high school? If so, what did you letter in? What year were you when you lettered? How many times? Did you get a letter jacket? When was the last time you wore it?

    ...i would have lettered in football (jv letter) my freshman year except for the first team meeting the coach stood in front of us all and said "the first thing is everybody in this room is gonna get a haircut and if you dont like it you might as well get up and get out of here now"
    i was the only kid who got up and walked out and id do it all over again just to be sure theyd know how i felt about it.

    I like that. I wonder if the other guys secretly wished they had done that, too.

    I lettered in shop class senior year. Seriously, I had enough credits that year that I had all all easy classes (mostly shop classes) so I earned high honors the whole year, which I guess earned me a letter. I think I threw it out.

    That's really cool! I'm completely non-athletic so I never lettered in anything and when I hear stuff like this I get a little jealous. :-/

    Well, I shouldn't admit it here, but I was a band geek in high school. I still have my jacket, as well as my sweatshirt and t-shirt :oops:

    Lettered 9 times in high school. Never wanted a jacket. I thought they were lame (this was mid '90's). Lettered in college too. There the school gives you a lettermans jacket fir free when you letter. It was a good looking jacket but I never wore it because i didn't think it was cool. Now I wish I could wear it cuz it's a sharp jacket and I'm pretty proud of the achievement but i'd feel like a tool being 37 and wearing a college letterman jacket.

    I lettered in water polo at Helix High School in 1978.

    I don't have my jacket anymore but, it was a big deal at the time.
