Finding The Perfect Denim Jacket


The blue jean jacket (often referred to as a trucker jacket) will be a staple in every man’s closet their entire life. This classic wardrobe staple has been passed down from generation to generation since Levi Strauss introduced it back in 1905. But, the best part is that even the classics have room to evolve and now there are denim jacket options to match whatever your personal style calls for.

Jean jackets no longer need to be blue, or even made out of denim. That’s right, designers are using the classic trucker silhouette–slim, rigid, and cropped–in all kinds of new ways. From white denim to tan suede…anything goes. There’s of course absolutely nothing wrong with your classic blue Levi’s denim jacket, but now there’s an additional crop of cool denim jackets to play with.


The new breed of denim jackets is here. It doesn’t matter if it’s denim or suede, clean or destroyed, your new trucker jacket should be tailored and it should fit the body like body armor.
