Sure, there were plenty of events during those years that we’d rather not celebrate, but thankfully we get to cherry-pick the parts we want to idealize. It’s significantly more comforting to romanticize things like music, fashion, and sports — the holy triumvirate of ’90s cultural touchstones.
Vintage Starter Jackets
But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)
Vintage 90’s NFL Starter Carolina Panthers Windbreaker Jacket – Large
I have three two of those things in my room presently (Matt Christopher Books, Ken Griffey Jr. Ken Griffey Jr. rookie card). The fact that a Starter jacket isn’t on that list sickens and embarrasses me.

The Pull Over is the Rolls Royce of Starter jackets. It was the luxurious model that put Starter on the map and was the desire of every kid growing up in the 80’s and early 90’s. These are a rare breed now due to overuse and wearing every day for every situation. When you see one, you have to stop, gasp, and slap whoever you are next to as if Kathy Ireland was walking down the street in a bikini.
