denim jacket. This is a gaping hole in my wardrobe. I am in need of a classic denim jacket and have been for some time. Pity their cheapest one is £180 and in a bleached wash.
If you live for summer then you need a denim jacket. I had the perfect denim jacket that saw me through many a summer and accompanied me on many a summer holiday in warmer climes. I bought it about ten years ago in Diesel for about £70 in a now long forgotten era when you could actually purchase a denim garment from Diesel at full price for well under £150. It was a classic jean jacket, slightly fitted, in a slightly darker blue denim wash. It went with everything in my summer wardrobe and it suited me to a tee. I wore it so often over the years I owned it that the cost per wear was probably down to fractions of pence.
About three years ago I lost it, funnily enough in Spain. I have mourned its loss and my carelessness ever since and I have never been able to find a classic denim jacket as perfect nor have I been tempted to buy anything inferior or pointlessly more expensive in a similar style.
When I did finally buy another denim jacket I decided to go for a totally different style as I couldn't find a classic that I wanted. I found this Victorian military style Sass and Bide denim jacket in the sales and was seduced by the rock and roll drama of its multi-button closure, distressed finish, fluted sleeves and flared godets. Though it is fun to wear it doesn't have that same flexibility as my old Diesel had. It is more of a high fashion look and I find it requires more thought as to what I should wear it with. There are days you just want to throw a denim jacket on over what you are wearing without feeling like you are trying to look like Jimi Hendrix.
With all the denimania at the moment maybe this season I will finally find the one that will live up to the standards set by my old jacket.
