Q for parents whose hs child has Lettered

Did they do a letterman's jacket? Or letterman sweater?

DD lettered freshman year… But the jackets & sweaters simply are not done much here. She wants to buy a cute jean jacket and sew the letter onto that.

It just made me wonder if letterman's jacket & sweaters are a thing people do any more.




Edit.... people keep telling me to let her do what she wants. No where did I say I wasn't allowing her to choose what she wants to do with her letter.

We had lettermans jackets and they were popular, but no one had a sweater. I honestly didn't even know those were a thing.

Ultimately it's her choice. She's the one who would be wearing it.

It's HUGE here in Texas, at least in the Houston area. And it's jackets not sweaters down here.

I lettered in a couple of things. I have lettermans jacket, but I used to wear a pull over hoodie that we put a letter on that I wore everyday.

Neither of my boys got a jacket for their letter. I've never seen anyone wearing a jacket with a letter on it since my kids have been in high school 7 years.

It's a big deal here. However my child is like it me and chose not you get a jacket we both thought they were ugly and knew it would be a waste since we would never wear it. And no she didn't know my opinion on it or that I opted out as well until later lol.

DD lettered in two things and they are both on her jacket. She also has her name & band accolades.

Oh man I haven't seen one of those things in at least a decade, if not longer. They are so ugly and tacky.

Lol I didn't even know "getting lettered" was a phrase.

My kids didn't want the jacket so they were tucked away in their files.
