Saint Laurent Raw Denim Jacket in Black

Saint Laurent's Raw Denim Jacket in Black is the platonic ideal of denim jackets. It has a neat collar, a cropped silhouette, dull brass buttons, and perpendicular stitch patterns on the cuffs and waistband. If the price tag makes you wince, know that there's a slightly cheaper version in faded blue. (But as is often the case with clothes, it's the black option that goes with everything and oozes cool.) [$1090; barneys.com]
