Jean jackets have been around forever—and for good reason. Their medium-weight denim material is the perfect buffer for cool summer nights, their Western origins make them inherently American, and their classic silhouette flatters anyone and everyone. But modern-day iterations stray far from the original, with luxe accents and cool new silhouettes. From quilted bombers to color-blocked pieces, shop eight new takes on the denim jacket (and one original).
