We weren't all so lucky as to attend high school's where making the varsity squad was easy and the letter jacket colors were anything to write home about. Some legit letter jackets are best kept in the heirloom closet. But for those of us who long for that sturdy, college-bound comfort, Unis is filling in the gap. The Unis NY AW13 Varsity Jackets come in familiar black/blackblack/navy and black/loden colorways, a new maroon/brandy model and a luxe, all-black Loro Piana version, with an Italian wool body and premium sheepskin leather sleeves. The entire line is made in the States and features a quilted liner, a ribbed collar and hem, and a slimmer fit than the bulbous yellow number mom keeps in your old closet. And big plus: no one will know your only letter was for Model UN.

We're big fans of Unis here in the Nothing Major offices and are willing to consider that the new Davis Pants from Unis might be the spring pants for which we've been looking. Yes, they're pleated—and we shudder at the pleats we wore in our youth— but pleats are okay this year, especially in a slimmer pant. Cut and sewn in the USA from Italian cotton twill they're made to last and make you look good doing it. They're slim, as we said, with a button fly and flap pockets. In other words, ready for the office, outdoor drinks after work, and a jaunt over to a music festival.

Unis Davis Pants are available online from Unis and in Unis boutiques.
