Jean jackets

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I am curious to get fellow forum members opinions on jean jackets.  Do you own one?  I saw one at polo.com that I rather liked; it seems that a jean jacket would be quite versatile, and a valuable addition to any wardrobe.  Here is the one I saw that I liked. http://www.polo.com/product....=family

I think I had one back in the '80s (when I was in junior high). Right now, I don't have one, and have no intention of getting one any time soon.

I like that one as well. I was eyeing a couple of months ago, but never pulled the trigger. If you decide to order it, let me know what you think of it once it arrives.

Damn... that's a cool jacket. The only thing that would piss me off is the no side pockets.

I have a few - they're handy for wearing with cargos, cords, and jeans (if they're not an exact match). One favorite is a classic slim-fitting Levi's trucker jacket, purchased in the darkest blue rinse, which I'm slowly wearing down - should take a couple of years at least. Another favorite is a newer one, a really slim-fitting zip-up motorcycle-style denim jacket, with zippered sleeves and double-button patch-and-flap chest pockets, in a medium blue - works with more 'techy' cuts and fabrics. EDIT: Thread moved to streetwear and denim in 3... 2... 1...

I like your choice, but I may offer this suggestion, buy an authentic Levi's or Wrangler model.  It's a better deal and wearing it in yourself gives the jacket more character than a store-bought distressed finish. I know both sides of this from a ill-advised teenage acid washed jean jacket purchase in the '80s at Sears (Cayon River Blues.) and a more sensible recent purchase from the Wal-Mart website.

I finally picked up a new Levi's after years of looking..I wear it with chinos, like it a lot but not for everyday as it was in my youth.

"Jean" is in the title.  What don't you people understand?

If I make a post re: a jean suit, what forum would I post it in?

Levi's made one for Elvis, I think, or maybe it was for someone else, when that celebrity was turned away roma restaurant for wearing jeans. Oh, how times have changed... I say, streetwear.

Agreed - I immediately think DeGrassi Junior High. With that said, I have seen them look good. Not my bag though.

i think denim jackets are a must have essential item. but you gotta find the *right one*, in a similar way you find the right jeans. the nudie dry denim jacket looks pretty sweet, altho if i were nitpicking the chest pocket buttons are a bit too close to the center buttons. the back is cool with the nudie orange striping
