  8. Phi Who says:

    A frat jacket or fracket is a crappy jacket or sweatshirt worn by a sorostitute attending an open frat party- the expectation is that it may be stolen and if it is the girl may steal another girl’s fracket to replace her own. Common in the North where it can be cold walking to frat row in winter.
