Jackets come in many shapes and sizes. Both men and women wear jackets, and they can be formal or casual in style.

The jacket in our drawing guide is versatile as well. It could be a...

  • Varsity jacket, also called letter jackets or letterman jackets, worn by high school and college athletes to represent their teams.
  • Bomber jacket or flight jacket, originally designed for military pilots but now popular as a casual style.
  • A leather jacket, often worn by motorcyclists and popularized by mid-century movie stars such as James Dean.
  • A windbreaker or tracksuit jacket, often worn by athletes.

In popular culture, especially in music, television, and film, performers have worn some very memorable jackets.

2. Beginning at the bottom of the jacket opening, extend a long line running loosely parallel to the jacket opening. As it reaches the top of the opening, allow the line to curve outward, forming a point as it curves back in. Repeat this three times, forming a larger triangular protrusion each time. This forms the collar lapel, collar notch, and front upper collar of the jacket. Then, run the line over the jacket opening. Form points as the line descends, creating a near-mirror image of the first side. Attach the line to the bottom of the jacket opening.
