Looks like something for a school letter jacket.

I second the opinion that it looks like something for a school letterman's jacket.  I think the chevrons were used to symbolize how many years one participated in a certain school activity (football, band, etc.)  The star I don't remember.

School letterman jacket - 1940s through 1970s. Not sure how they do it now.
