The iconic 1990s Philadelphia Eagles letterman jacket, made famous by Princess Diana, is making a comeback.

Teaser images of the jacket were posted on X by the iconic sportswear company on Wednesday. And, according to Complex, the jacket is set to have a retail price of $400.

The tweet was captioned with the words: ‘Royalty Returns Tomorrow’ along with emojis of a crown, a green heart, and an eagle. 

Diana, who died in a car crash in Paris in 1997, was snapped in the jacket several times, including during the school run with her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry.

She was given it by late Eagles statistician and broadcaster Jack Edelstein. They met at the funeral of Princess Grace of Monaco – formerly Grace Kelly – in 1982.

‘Diana loved to be different, this was her style,’ her former bodyguard Ken Wharfe said in October, per People. 

‘It sort of showed the public and her children that she was a normal mother in a style that people liked.’ 

The jacket is expected to be available for purchase via Mitchell & Ness and Fanatics, while the Eagles confirmed it will also be available in their team pro shops.

Two Kylie Kelce autographed versions of the jackets are up for auction, with the leading bid – at the time of writing – already $10,050. The proceeds will benefit the Eagles Autism Foundation.

The jacket is not the only 1990s merchandise making a return this year, with the Eagles bringing back their beloved Kelly Green jerseys.

Philadelphia is reportedly trying to trademark the phrase ‘Kelly Green’.

‘It doesn’t allow the Eagles to tell people you can’t use Kelly Green to describe a color of another article of clothing or Kelly Green to describe a color that somebody else is using in another context,’ Trademark attorney Josh Gerben explained to CBS.

‘The only thing this trademark would allow the Eagles to do is, “Hey, another team can’t use Kelly Green to describe a game or theme that might be going on around the game.”‘
