    Is there a KP letterman's jacket that athletes purchase and can wear? I know USMA has jackets and USNA has sweaters.

    Our son received a letterman's blanket from Kings Point. Much more useful in years after graduation that a letter jacket.

    On a side note...all midshipmen were issued a "letter jacket" type jacket as a part of their allotment when our son was a midshipman. Don't know if they still do our not, but it's a nice looking jacket and many assumed it was an athletic letter jacket.

    BTW..he graduated in 2001.

    A jackets are no longer issued, the company that made them went out of business around 2006. Finding someone to replace them was too expensive. So Midshipman are now issued navy regulation windbreakers with their year embroidered on the jacket.

    When I was there we were able to buy a Varsity Club coat (I still have mine). It had USMMA and your year on the front. We were authorized to wear it instead of the standard issue winter coat.
