I’ll take this as my annual opportunity to share the belief that all of those Don’t-Wear-This-After-40 lists that fashion websites and magazines push are are complete and utter bullshit. Denim jackets are inevitably on the list, and I always wonder why: they’re easy, casual timeless pieces that look good on most everyone. The ones I’ve chosen here are all, in different ways, slightly less classic and a little more interesting, starting with this one, which has such great pockets.
Here’s one in the ever-popular chore jacket shape.
The grey hue here is nicely unexpected, and I like the slightly oversized silhouette.
This is actually a pretty straightforwardly classic denim jacket, but the dark black and body-skimming fit make it just slightly dressier than the rest here.
Such a nice clean shape on this one, and I really like the buttons.
If I were to allow myself to purchase just one of these jackets, I’d go for this because the stitching at the collar is so damn cute.
And finally: another chore jacket, nicely priced.
