“Serge de Nimes,” the twill cloth from which denim originated, may have come from France but nothing is more quintessentially American than denim. It goes without saying that every man should own a denim jacket. A favorite for generations of male style icons & regular Jo’s alike the denim jacket is a style essential. Perfect as a layering piece under a topcoat or blazer in the winter or on its own in the spring, denim jackets are both functional and classic.

One of the standouts of the season is Mark McNairy’s denim jacket for Topman (second from the bottom below). This limited edition jacket is part of Topman’s Denim Jacket Project and available online or at the brand’s Soho store. At $140 you get a whole lot of McNairy for a little money (his knit polo‘s are $150).
