Looks like the Capitals are throwing it back to the ’80s for this playoff run. Several of the Caps girlfriends, wives, and daughters will be sporting custom jean jackets to root on their men.
TJ Oshie’s wife Lauren got two jackets for the couple’s daughters Lyla and Leni. The tiny jackets both say “Daddy” and sport #77 on the back. They’re also decorated with patches that pay homage to the team, the capital, and the good ol’ days where people slapped peace signs on everything.
Kevin Shattenkirk’s girlfriend Deanna also got a jacket made.
Nastya Ovechkina showed off her jean jacket in an Instagram post before the game.

According to Daniel Winnik’s wife Taylor, some of the wives decided to get jean jackets made to support their husbands while having a bit of fashionable fun. It also appears that the group decided to balance the retro jackets with some more modern shirts featuring emoji-esque versions of their favorite guys along with other stylish Caps gear.
I don’t know how inclined I am to make jean jackets a thing again, but I’m all about any new clothes to help everyone get hyped for the playoffs.
