For eons, I’ve had the denim on denim look as the sole preserve of builders and creepy men in clubs. But seeing this picture at the Sartorialist has changed my mind for good. Although it’s best left for the colder months, the look can be recreated with this LVC 1936 type 1 Jacket.
The problem with most Denim on Denim looks is that the jacket is usually ill-fitting. With the cinchback design, it’s possible to create a strong V-line, which is what sets off the jacket in the picture. The other major problem I had with this look was that the denim didn’t match. As this is a navy blue, it should easily match at least one pair of jeans in your closet. The jacket costs £125 and is available from Cultizm.com.
