Naked & Famous Waxed Denim Jacket
The only tempered denim jacket on the list, Naked & Famous' Waxed Denim Jacket almost resembles shiny linen. But don't underestimate it's toughness. it's durable and slim fit, but has just enough room in the body to let you move around comfortably. Our only complaint is that there aren't any pockets at the waist. [$170; barneys.com]
