Indicative of timeless design, and regarded worlds over as the staple of all staples, the denim jacket is an unwavering style icon, and foundational to the wardrobes of the world’s best-dressed. Fortified by a compelling subcultural history, denim as a fabric forsakes the formality of ageless alternatives, surpassing the likes of chino cloth with pure, unadulterated personality.

Much like the iconic MA-1 bomber jacket, the denim jacket spans a seemingly infinite number of style strata, used in both an auxiliary capacity, and as the standout piece. And like other timeless designs, the denim jacket only gets better with age, developing a sort of patina, highlighted by frayed edging, loose thread, and discoloration. Having outfitted everyone from punks to preps, the denim jacket remains wholly relevant in 2023, with the likes of Virgil Abloh’s Off-White™, Palm Angels, EVISU, and more continuing to reinterpret the silhouette, while never moving too far away from its original form.

Palm Angels releases its denim jacket design nigh-on every season, and we're still not bored of it. The label's Gothic text logo runs across the shoulders as the main detailing to offset this otherwise classic piece.

In a similar style, this piece from Off-White™ finds its base in a classic stonewashed trucker jacket. The imprint's signature Diag logo detail the reverse, though.

The time-tested Levi's Trucker Denim Jacket will never let you down. It's the OG when it comes to denim jackets and this distressed iteration feels like it already comes with a story.

EVISU

EVISUCamo Denim Jacket
$500
Buy at Harvey Nichols

We love the fact that denim jackets can be the highlight of an outfit, or fade into the background. Either way, they're invaluable assets to have. This reversible version from EVISU is the best of both worlds, with bold camo on one side and a classic denim patina on the other.

Levi's Shearling

One of the icons when it comes to denim is True Religion. This cult brand has been releasing hit designs for decades now, and it's had a resurgence in popularity with the Y2K trend. This black shearling denim jacket is, again, ideal for the transitional period.

Taking a more workwear-leaning tip, this patchwork chore coat from EVISU feels very Japanese. And if you didn't know already, Japan is the home of denim mastery.
