The Detailed Denim Jacket

Denim jackets look great or terrible. There is no middle ground. G-Star Raw's Slim 3D makes a positive impression by being less boxy than most models and flaunting its details, which include heavy seems down the arms and across the chest and jean-style embroidery on the front pockets. The distressed wash is just this side of conspicuous and light enough that the jacket can actually be worn with extremely dark or black denim without looking like the top of a Canadian tuxedo. It's a winner with a white shirt and a skinny tie, but equally at home above your favorite concert t-shirt. Just don't wear it with a trucker's cap. [$250; g-star.com]
