FIVE JACKETS YOU NEED TO OWN: THE DENIM JACKET


The denim jacket is timeless, classic like the little black dress. As fashion has evolved so has the denim jacket.  Introduced by Levi Strauss in the early 1900's (See History of the denim jacket) it's the one piece of clothing that has never waned in popularity.  If anything it's constantly evolving, in the 60's it was socially conscious, adorned with buttons proclaiming love, not war. In the 70s it got groovy and lost its sleeves, and in the 80s it became a canvas of graffiti enthusiasts and hip hop heads. Dare I say, it’s the one piece of clothing that is universally owned?  My favorite brands for the classic jacket are of course Levi's, and my personal go to brand for all things denim, The Gap.  My advice to you, buy one you love and wear it forever, because it gets even better with age.
