Raving About My Baseball Jacket

Who’s excited about baseball season? After the Giants won the world series last year, my family and I were able to take photos with the World Championship trophies that the Giants won in both 2010 and 2012 at beautiful AT&T Park. I was excited to share in San Francisco’s celebration of the Giants’ big win, and equally excited to get some baseball gear at the Giants Dugout Store. While searching for gifts as well as myself, I learned that the men’s section had so much more than the women’s section… the guys seemed to have all of the good stuff. There were a ton of really cool letterman and baseball jackets that I wish they made for women or children, or even in smaller men’s sizes. Even while attempting to find a size small in the a men’s letter jackets, I was informed most of the styles weren’t even made in a size small. I wanted a Giants jacket, but I didn’t want one that was going to be giant on me. So, I decided I was going to make my own San Francisco Giants baseball jacket, one that was going to fit. There are so many trendy baseball style jackets for women, so it was easy for me to pick out a simple black jacket with white vegan leather sleeves and white buttons from H&M for a reasonable price. I carefully took off the letter “B” that was originally on the jacket and went on eBay to look for some San Francisco Giants patches. I found two vintage Giants patches that I thought would look great on my jacket, each under $10. The patches were super easy to iron on and I was left with a baseball jacket with a vintage feel, that represents my favorite team. Creating a team jacket turned out to be a lot less costly than purchasing one in-store, but a lot more form fitting and unique to personal preferences. Nothing should stop us from something that we want, especially if it’s easy enough to make ourselves. Now, we can be all excited about dressing for baseball season. Go Team Go!!

      Thanks! I do too, I’m not that crafty, but it was super easy to do.
