    I think the ALD jacket looks really cool, but something about it screams "urban hiphop wear" to me, which is a bad thing. Maybe it's because of the busy-ness. I'd def like it more if it didnt have the blue stitching on the pockets. The Nudie conny takes my vote for coolest modern denim jacket.

    I'm very satisfied with my raw APC denim jacket. I also own a vintage Levi that's slightly bigger for heavier layering. I don't mind doing the Texas tuxedo look though, someone who doesn't might not wear their denim jackets as much.

    I wonder if anyone has actually produced a denim jacket that's actually cut like a tux jacket. That would be the ultimate Texas tuxedo.

    Gucci did a really well cut one button, slim cut blue-black denim sportsjacket in, um, 2000 or something. That the closest I've seen.

    I just bought a Wrangler jacket at the fleamarket for $5. It looks decent enough even though I have no idea what model it is or if it is vintage or not. I suspect it is just a regular jacket, but I'm not quite sure. The collar is corduroy and there is a inner lining to the jacket, which makes it thicker than plain denim. I'm trying to decide if I should remove the lining or not. The lining makes the jacket really warm and good for winter, but it also makes it bulky. I've always thought that denim jackets were meant to be worn thin and slim. Do you think I should leave it the way it is or try to modify it for a more slimming look? Here are the pictures: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Any idea if this is something special or just a common jacket? edit: mispelled "courdoroy"

    Yes, they are. I actually really liked his take on the Levis 506 a few seasons back. He stripped it down, taking away the pleats and the buckle back, and left just the oversized chest pocket, small collar, and slightly boxy shape. Very cool. He did a version in brown flannel twill as well, which looked really nice.

    The stripped-down jackets you are referring to are excellent. The sleeves are slightly long, the armhole is high... The just look great. A unique, simple, elegant take on the classic denim jacket.

    Good luck finding them, though.

    Yo,

    Coldrice. Does samurai sell kids denim? I need to buy my kid (on the way) some nice denim and I guess mini nudies are no longer.

    Thanks

    Yoox had loads for fire sale prices, and I've seen them at the discount racks in various LA area Loehmanns. I think that a lot of consumers just didn't understand the concept.
