A DENIM JACKET WITH HERITAGE

How we took the denim jacket from sturdy workwear to wardrobe essential

Back in the day, the denim jacket was invented as a hardy cover-up to protect manual workers in the gold rush-era Wild West from the harsh conditions. But even though none of us is likely to need to roll up our sleeves and lay some steam train railroad any time soon, just like jeans, denim jackets have won a place in wardrobes far beyond the OK Corral. And this one is pure gold. We’ve given ours an authentic indigo wash for a lived-in feel straight off the hanger, while the rivets and top-stitching look the part. But the real secret is the touch of stretch we’ve put in, taking it from tough as nails to easy to wear in an instant, making it a reliable choice, even if you’re only going down the pub.
