13 Jean Jackets for Every Season

You are very cool. You have great taste in music, detailed knowledge of many things, maybe even a nice car. But no matter how cool you already think you are, if you don’t own a denim jacket, I hate to inform you that you are not as cool as you could be. You could look at that as an insult. You could also look at it as an opportunity.

Jean jackets are essential because they’re easily paired with just about everything. They look great new, and they look even better when they’re worn in, beat up, torn and stained. A great jean jacket can take you from day to night and from summer to fall (don’t worry, they make ‘em fleece-lined). Wear jeans on your bottom half often? Get a black jean jacket for your top half, or rock a Canadian tuxedo. Either way, we promise you need a jean jacket. Become the coolest iteration of yourself with one of our favorite 13.
