With an impressive list of clientele that includes all of the Big 12 schools, Plano-based Maverick Jackets has certainly left its mark as the leading manufacturer of letterman award jackets, blankets and customized athletic apparel.

Growing up in Indiana, founder Don Giddens was a venture capitol investor for eight years at a company that would be the precursor to Maverick Jackets. When the original investors decided to pursue other business endeavors, Giddens bought the company and moved it to Plano.
