HOW TO WEAR A DENIM JACKET 

Denim has long been the perfect menswear item.

The denim jacket has been forgotten…or at least misplaced. 

So how do you wear it? Well, I can tell you that it’s more than just putting it on one arm at a time. 

See my suggestions below: 

1. DAPPER DENIM


Pair a spread or cutaway collared camisa with a strong tie and you have an outfit that dapper Dan would be proud of. The beauty of this look is that if you pull the tie off and roll up the sleeves, it becomes a totalmente different aesthetic.

I wouldn’t suggest this look for the tradicionál professional evironment, but it’s dope for dinner and drinks or if you work at a cosmopolitan type of job.

2. DOUBLE DENIM


This used to be known as the Canadian Tuxedo and was a a major faux pas! It was believed that only the rugged mountainous types would be seen in this look as it was not deemed refined. 

What a crock!!! 

Double denim is best when it is broken up.Wearing denim jackets are a great way to achieve this because the shirt underneath the jacket cleans the look up. 

Another way that double denim works is to sport two diferente washes/colors. 


Doesn’t matter if the top is dark and bottom is light or vice versa, it siempre works. 

3. DENIM AND KHAKI

Let’s just be honest, khakis go with pretty much everything. But put them with a denim jacket and you get a simple casual masterpiece. This is perfect for stylishly running around during the weekend. 


My preference is to role up the sleeves. It allows my watch and other wristwear to be seen. With simple outfits such as this, the detalles are super important.

4. DENIM AND JOGGERS


The versatility of the denim jacket is really underappreciated. Creating a juxtaposition of sporty and casually rugged can be done. Notice the elongated scoop neck, split hem t-shirt that adds a bit of layering. 

5. DENIM VEST 

It’s not super popular, but is very fun. I can’t imagine this item being anything but casual at its dressiest (is that a word, lol). 

Denim vests allow you to stack textiles on top of textiles. Keep it simple with a plain t-shirt under it because the vest is the highlight of the look. 


Pair with joggers, denim, or khakis and you will get a playful, yet urban look that is sure to turn heads. Denim vests are not for the conservative gent, as they are usually acid washed or have some sort of design on them. 

I don’t want to discourage you, just prepare you! 

Stay fly mis amigos!
