We already have the 'How many pairs of jeans do you own?' thread

However conspicuous by its absence is the 'How many denim jackets have you got?' thread

So high time we get this thread going!!

The following are all encouraged… posting your denim jacket count to answer the thread exam question (though the number itself matters not), pictures of your happy denim jacket family, any denim jacket stories… and, of course, anything else even loosely related...

I'll contribute! My jacket collection is smaller and more focused than my jeans, mainly since I get relatively little time to wear them.

I've already mentioned some of mine in the HMPOJDYO thread but here is the full disclosure. 

1. FW 1942 506XX sz 46 (incoming) - This will be put on ice until my WH jacket starts to get to a decent level, fade-wise. Or if l over cook it and it gets too small.

2. Warehouse 1927 506XX sz 46 - my current wearer until (see above)

3. Lee 1931 101J  Cowboy sz 42 - old/worn, a bit slim but doable over a tee. 

4. OG Lee 101LJ Stormrider sz 46 (from the early 1960s) - perfect wearerable condition. Worn sparingly in spring/autumn (on the rare occasion when it's not wet).

5. Lee 101J sz XL. This was a tk maxx purchase c.2005 for £25. Made in Tunisia but the fit was spot on so couldn't pass it up. Now lives in London where it gets worn mostly by the Mrs.


6. Lvc 1880s Triple pleated blouse sz XL. Don't wear anymore ( for sale so make me an offer if interested 😊 )


Now all we need is a proper jacket junky thread, to include all jackets, denim and non-denim.

Dang, you all must wear jackets like I wear pants…

For me, as far as I can remember, it's just:

  • Levi's Rigid II Trucker, size L, now a vest
  • Kapital Century Denim No. 7s rider jacket, size 44L (could probably have gone 46)
  • Sun Surf SS14450 Okolehao Ranch Blouse, size 42
  • Tender Co. Type 900 10th anniversary edition woad overdye, size 4
  • Tender Co. Type 902 sans overdye, size 4

Too many. * = active wear

  • Eternal Type II*
  • TCB 1930s Type I*
  • LVC (MiJ) Type I
  • LVC Triple pleat (for sale, BNWT)
  • TCB Seamen’s jacket (for sale, BNWOT) - this is too similar to my LVC shawl collar jacket in navy twill, which I prefer

I don’t, I just like them more. I’ve really only got even halfway decent fades on probably 4-5 of them. That said, I probably wear a jacket more than like…95% of the people out there. My partner gives me (good natured) grief about it all the time.

^ It may actually be more cost effective to turn your heating on

Haha not with UK prices... and the Yen rates making jackets extra good value

Given I'm in Yorkshire, I tell the kids they can have the heating on after jackets and star jumps have failed to warm them up... and it's below 10C... indoors :)

But that's how it begins. It only takes one 😁


if I’m being honest, I do have other jackets, but non of them are denim. I wear a jacket for around 6 months of the year. Having more than 1 got to me to a point where I wasn’t really wearing any of them, so I only left the one I liked the most and sold the others. I am eyeing some type I jackets. Possibly FW. We’ll see.
