Denim is the ultimate American fabric and despite the fact that jeans get most of the attention, jackets made of the blue stuff are versatile and classic. Whether you're looking for something light-washed and simple or preparing for a week in the wilderness, there's something on the market for you to scuff up, wear in, and pass down to the next generation.
Here are the best jean jackets out there.
Engineered Garments Short Coverall Denim Jacket
If you're bored with the classic denim jacket silhouette and want something more versatile, look no further than Engineered Garments' Short Coverall Denim Jacket. With over-sized pockets and detachable hood that buttons up around the chin, its shape is similar to a hoodie or a windbreaker. Bright white contrast stitching and thick drawstrings around the neck make it the preppiest jacket on the list. [$435; barneys.com]
