The track jacket is having a major moment. With all of the sportswear-as-streetwear and athleisure styles happening these days, it’s strange that it hasn’t had this kind of comeback sooner. The high-shine fabric lends an unexpected air of elegance to something that was originally designed for sweat, and between it’s comfortable fit, classic 70’s style, sporty vibe and general ease, it has something to offer guys of every style.
