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.
Todd Snyder Navy Dylan Jacket
The Todd Snyder Navy Dylan Jacket has a workwear feel to it that makes it stand out – maybe it's the lack of vertical seems in the front, or the large, unusually low chest pockets, or the gleaming concave buttons. Still, it's a denim jacket through and through. Unlike many of the others on this list, this jacket gets points for having a lining and for feeling work-appropriate: dress it up with chinos and a button down and you're good to go.
