These lined denim jackets are perfect for autumn and winter
04 January 2018

Big Coat Season may be upon us, but not everyone wants to get involved. That’s fine, I guess. Instead of simply accepting defeat and getting the puffa out, you might find yourself drawn to a faithful (if out of season) favourite: the denim jacket.

Originally conceived as workwear in the temperamental, uh, temperatures of the American frontier, from the time Levi Strauss (of Levi’s, not the Levi Strauss you half-remember learning about in college – Claude Levi-Strauss, the father of modern anthropology) fashioned one of his famous denim jeans into a jacket around 1880, there were people queuing up to buy them: sheriffs, deputies, cowboys, railroad engineers, miners, panhandlers – all rocked the denim jacket come rain or shine and their durability and style has not eased up in the prevailing century-and-a-half… 

So if you’ve been wearing them all year, are you supposed to put them back in storage just because it’s a bit chilly out now? No, sir. You can do whatever you damn well please – especially with one of these great, made-for-less-pleasant-weather denim (OK, not all of them are denim but they all are at least styled like denim jackets) jackets:

ASOS Borg Lined Denim Jacket in Blue Wash (ASOS, £60)

Rag & Bone Shearling-Lined Denim Jacket (Mr. Porter, £375)

BDG Sand Cord Sherpa Trucker Jacket (Urban Outfitters, £75)

Lee Storm Rider Jacket 18 month worn denim (Oi Polloi, £240) 

Maison Kitsune Faux Shearling-Lined Cotton-Corduroy Jacket (Mr. Porter, £310)

Carhartt Phoenix Coat (Carhartt, £175)

Levi’s Blanket-Lined Selvedge Utility Coat (Levi’s, £190)

GOSHA RUBCHINSKIY Faux Fur Denim Jacket (Goodhood, £460)

ASOS PLUS Oversized Denim Jacket with Borg Collar (ASOS, £50)

And this last one, we assure you, definitely counts…

Zara Satin Denim Jacket (Zara, £79.99)

It says ‘denim’ right there, look.
