    It's in (nearly) every men's wardrobe : the jeans jacket also called the trucker jacket (more appropriate here, as denim is not mandatory).

    This Americana Classic is very versatile. The challenge is to wear it in a smart way. So no double denim of course.
    Pair it with Chinos, Wool trousers, Sta-prest, Cords, Tailored trousers, etc.
    Shirt or Knitwear (or both) are mandatory, not tie, even if you can wear one if you like.
    Of course you can layer a trucker between your outerwear and your shirt/knitwear. Quite cold these days, so don't be afraid to juxtapose…
    The picture has to be 'fresh' guys. Never seen before…
    Your trucker jacket should have the classic shape, but can be a simple Levi's or a more refined contemporary take. I will turn down entries with jackets too far from a traditional trucker shape, length, etc.
    The material could be denim, cord, leather, suede, or snakeskin… Show us your individuality !

    A repp or knit tie would have worked better, but hey, I had fun.

    20 min suede mockups. Could've used a white t-shirt with the navy and a better fitting moleskin brown pants.

    Ouch, ouch, & ouch. Let's say the middle picture qualifies as you are not wearing (still ?) jeans. :-D
    I will have to wear sunglasses the next time i look at your pictures though.

    BTW, following Riva example, multiple entries are allowed, you will just have to specify which one you choose for the poll (as long as it qualifies).

    "The picture has to be 'fresh' guys. Never seen before…"

    Well I may have misread this into "Never seen before fresh outfit" in the literal sense that it's never been done before anywhere. I could've worn a sky blue linen shirt with a camel suede trucker and white chino but that would be missing the challenge.

    PS: I only wear jeans with the green jacket. The navy is paired with this:

    But it'd work with this as well though boring:

    All right then, you will tell me which one you choose as your entry…

    In case of multiple entries, if the poster don't specify which one he chooses as his entry, i will decide...
