If you’ve paid attentions to trends at all this season, you would’ve noticed how popular the denim jacket has been. While it has been a closet staple for decades, there might not be a better time than now to jump on to one of the five denim jackets chosen below. We picked out five of our favorites in no particular order and stuck to the classic blue denim in a variety of styles and denim choices.
First on our list is the Classic Denim Jacket by Freenote. The iconic denim jacket gets a modern update with 13.5 oz Cone Selvedge Denim, custom metal trims, interior pockets, hand selected leather interior patch and finished off with the classic zigzag stitching. There’s not much more you could want from a jacket that will only get better with time and years of wear and tear. You may need to do some shopping around if they don’t have your size, but we’re sure it’ll be worth the search.
Next up is another fan favorite from Taylor Stitch, the Long Haul in Cone Mills’ 110th anniversary Natural Indigo Selvage Denim. Sporting a similar look to the previous denim jacket, the Long Haul features 13.25 oz. 100% cotton indigo dyed denim. Taylor Stitch caters this jacket to the denim loyalists with all the bells and whistles to match. You’ll find custom copper YKK buttons & rivets, a Wickett & Craig leather patch on the interior, two rounded patch pockets including a pen slot on the left side, selvage detailing and Zigzag reinforcement stitching.
Coming in at third on our list is the Emil Raw Denim Jacket by Saturdays. While Saturdays offers additional washes, we preferred the raw indigo version, which also comes with branded hardware and plenty of pockets on the chest and sides. The Emil jacket may not feel as stiff as the others on this list considering Saturdays labels it as having “worn-in” feel, which might be a selling point to some. It should be ready to go right when you get it and you won’t have to go through that rough stage.
Continuing with our favorite denim jackets for this season, we couldn’t overlook Tellason’s Denim Jacket in 12.5 oz Cone Mills White Oak Selvage Denim. Cut and sewn in San Francisco, this denim jacket is lighter than some of the others on this list, but sure to hold up over time and fade nicely. It sports the classic denim look with four pockets and looks even better in-person.
Rounding out our list of denim jackets for the season is Rogue Territory’s Supply Jacket. Constructed of 14.5 oz Nihon Menpu Mills selvedge denim, the Supply Jacket is on the heavier side and features a unique design with 2 slant pockets at the waist and a stash pocket on the left chest. You’ll also find adjusters at the waist, custom RT hardware and a point collar. This has been a fan favorite and we can see why. It’s a step away from the traditional denim jackets but still has a great aesthetic.
