Many think of it as the brand that hired guys to stand shirtless in its store windows, but Abercrombie & Fitch has since changed its tune. Today, the brand focuses more on diversity, inclusion, and socially driven trends in fashion—think vintage-inspired graphic tees, textured fabrics, and even activewear—and would surprise many with its recent rise in popularity. Though the A&F of old may have left a bad taste in the mouths of some people (maybe from inhaling the brand’s Fierce cologne), they’ve got one of the coolest jackets we’ve seen in months—and it’s now on sale for under $100.

The A&F Varsity Bomber Jacket is on sale for just $80—a 56% discount on the original price of $180. Specific products tend to sell out quicker than shoppers can rate and review them, but this jacket has earned nearly 40 five-star ratings and boasts a near-perfect score. Though it’s on sale, somehow this jacket is still available in sizes small through 2XL.

Get It at A&F

This bomber jacket embodies the best aesthetics of old-school varsity sportswear but is machine-washable. It’s a mixed media piece with a polyester body and contrasting vegan leather sleeves that feature embroidered patches of the Santa Barbara track team logo, laurel, and uniform numbers throughout. It has a snap-button closure up the front and two side hand pockets to help guys look tough mid-conversation. And, in true varsity fashion, there is a striped elastic collar, hemline, and cuffs.

All of A&F’s bomber jackets from this past season have been incredible. But pieces like this are evidence of the clear departure from the brand that used to be a lazier version of J.Crew. And when you take the time to scroll through the current offerings, it’s clear that A&F puts more effort into finding styles that are a combination of timeless and trendy while offering decent value to consumers of all ages. If the brand can change the way it sees itself, so can you.

Shoppers are obsessing over how interesting this varsity bomber jacket is, calling it a compliment-inducing machine that’s comfortable and cozy. “I bought this in early fall, and I have never received more compliments on any piece of clothing,” a shopper shared. Another shopper, similarly, said, “This is the second jacket I’ve purchased from A&F and I am super satisfied with this jacket. I’ve gotten so many compliments and the fit is perfect.”

Others have commended the jacket for its versatility, despite it being a statement piece. “I love this jacket,” a shopper shared. “So easy to make outfits and it’s so warm, especially with the cold weather. I got a large and it’s a bit big but it’s a comfy oversized fit.”

In 2024, it’s worth giving A&F another look, especially with a piece like this Varsity Bomber Jacket. But the one thing to note is that A&F sale items sell out very quickly. So if you’re looking for a great three-season jacket that’ll hail compliments from across the room, grab your size while it’s still available.
