Pale and interesting: the Nudie denim jacket

By Colin Chapman on April 15th, 2009

Nudie_jean_jacket.jpgI’ve been searching for the ‘perfect’ denim jacket for a while now, and this one by Nudie at ASOS comes pretty close. Pale, and ‘vintage looking’ It’s also short on the waist (essential), fitted, and (crucially) has no side pockets, this ensures that it won’t go baggy over time at the sides, as you won’t be tempted to shove your hands in your pockets.

I plan to layer mine, with a cashmere knit and white T or a hoodie on chilly days, dressed up over a fitted shirt and tie, definitely mismatched with super-dark indigo jeans.

Whilst denim purists would have you rummaging in smelly warehouses for an original Lee Stormrider, I’d say make it simple with this beauty.

Lad Musician A/W 08 highlights

By admin on September 12th, 2008

Lad Musician are clearly a brand willing to take some risks. For example, take their studded gloves (pictured above). Although it’s a look associated with people who wear new rock boots, it looks surprisingly wearable, although it would look better if it were just polka dots. The other risk is their inclusion of denim jackets.

These jackets are risky not because no-one is wearing. It’s risky because everything who is wears them horrifically, matching them to their denim jeans and looking like rejects from a Bruce Springsteen lookalike competition. I’m not about to call it a comeback, but denim jackets might just be a viable alternative for people looking to change it up from bombers and trench coats. Lad Musician is available from blackbird and the site’s webshop.
