Leavers hoodies have been popular in the UK for a while now, but long before then, they were hugely popular in the US. Leavers jackets, in particular, have been popular since the 1980s, thanks to Harvard University.

Originally a jacket designed for school and college athletes in the US, schools in the UK now have varsity jackets as part of their leavers’ clothing options.
