The jacket, from its earliest origins, was designed to provide the body with warmth and protection and in some cases demonstrated the social status on an individual. Further, additional art was often added to the design to represent a group of people or have a unique meaning to the group or individual. The design of a jacket is intended to offer protection against environmental elements as opposed to the coat that is designed to provide protection against more severe temperature and environmental forces. For this purpose, the jacket is constructed to cover the neck (and head if a hood is included), the body to the waist, and the arms with sleeves.

Charles River’s ability to custom design almost any decoration feature to the jacket that you may desire, makes this jacket extremely popular with organizations, teams and other entities wanting to provide their members with comfort and style while projecting a unity and camaraderie of the group.
