I have a weird relationship with jean jackets. I found an amazing Levi’s jean jacket in a one-of-a-kind sample style at a thrift shop near my parents’ house years ago, but never really wore it because I’m not a huge fan of the Canadian tuxedo (it’s still tucked away in the back of my closet because I can’t bear to part with it). I also had a denim-look knit jacket I wore for a season, but the sleeves were too long and then the zipper broke.
But I still dream of that early 90s, light wash, oversized jean jacket bedazzled with hot air balloons I had as a young kid, so when I saw that Everlane was releasing a sustainable jacket in vintage-inspired washed black, I immediately saved up credits to buy it.
Also, note that this is the premiere of my new “studio.” Sure, there’s an unsightly (vintage?!) space heater on the wall but at least the lighting is even and the flooring has a clean, modern look. Having this indoor space is going to make it so much easier to take outfit photos, especially in the winter time when the days are short.
Everlane Denim Jacket Review
I am typically a small or medium in Everlane tops and I went with a small in the jacket after reading reviews. It has an intentionally oversized, boxy fit reminiscent of jean jackets from the late 80s and early 90s. The fit is great through the body, though I can’t button the bottom button because of my hip-waist ratio. That being said, a medium definitely would have fit too big through the shoulders. The best surprise is that the fit through the shoulders isn’t at all constricting; I can reach straight forward without losing any range of motion.
Really good, surprisingly comfortable midweight, 100% cotton denim. The finishing and stitching is impeccable.
I’m really happy with this jacket, as I am with almost all my Everlane purchases. If you read the sizing information and reviews, I’m confident you can get the fit you want.
I’m currently participating in the #glamcapsule #10x10challenge on Instagram. We’re aiming to prove that sustainable fashion doesn’t have to be all linen and taupe (but if that’s your thing, that’s fine, too!) by wearing the most outrageous, bright, eccentric pieces in our closet: 10 items mixed and matched for 10 days. It’s not too late to join!
