What is the Haggar® Gold Jacket?

By Julie Skaff | March 20, 2020 | Pro Football Hall of Fame



The Haggar Gold Jacket that Hall of Fame inductees receive during Enshrinement Week presented by Johnson Controls is one of the most recognizable items in the football world. When a former player, coach or contributor walk into a room wearing a Haggar Gold Jacket, everybody knows that the person wearing it is an NFL legend.

A Haggar Gold Jacket isn’t just any old sport coat. Haggar is the Official Maker of the Hall of Fame Gold Jacket and the men who have one of these jackets are extraordinary. So, it makes sense that the iconic Gold Jacket is so unique!

  • Hall of Fame crest is placed on the outer left side of the jacket
