Did you know the first denim jacket was sewn in 1905? It was sold by Levis to compliment the line of jeans and the work wear. It was rugged denim and was perfect for the cold, windy and rainy days. Today the mid- 1900s style has made a comeback, the faded jacket with a flannel shirt.

Do you want your jacket to have a liner or not? The liner gives the jacket a unique look so make your decision carefully.

The no liner jacket is the popular denim jacket. The no liner will also give you the option to layer underneath an overcoat.

Treat your denim jacket as if you would a pair of jeans. Wash infrequently to preserve the color. It may shrink and hot-water washes.
