History of the Denim Jacket
Originally, denim made its appearance as being an apparel material in Europe. It began as a fabric worm by mainly Italian sailors for its lightweight and durable abilities. However, it was not until 1850 when denim would be known as a famous fabric. During the California Gold Rush, a designer began importing denim to use in the production of a sturdy and durable pair of trousers, also known as “jeans”. Denim would not be used as an upper garment until 1905 when the same designer created a denim work shirt to accompany the denim pants. The design was simplistic: one front pocket, a single button clinch on the back, and a single line of buttons on the front of the shirt. This creation became the foundational base of the eventual denim jacket.
It will not be until 1953 where the denim jacket would be getting its upgrades. The designer wanted the denim jacket to appear more western, thus prompting the jacket to sport two buttoned front pockets, a single row of buttons on the front, a downwards facing collar, cuffs with a button on it, and the jacket body to be designed to be slim fitting. The changes to the denim jacket became an instant success and men everywhere begun wearing the stylish new jacket design that was lightweight, breathable, stylish, and durable, while still being able to give off the western cowboy vibe.
Denim Jacket Features
The denim jacket is known for its classic and timeless looks. Despite coming in a variety of different shades over the years, the denim jacket always keeps its classic and unique looks which gained it popularity in the 50’s. Some of the key features in denim jackets are its distinguishing blue shades and durability.
The distinguishable blue shade of denim was first crated alongside the original jacket in the 1950’s. This looked was achieved by the process of dyeing some threads a deep indigo colour and interlacing them with the naturally coloured cross threads. The unique aspect of this is that the colour actually sits on top of the fabric, which gives it its vibrant and famous colours.
Denim itself is a very strong and resilient material. Compared to other jackets, denim does not tear snag easily, which is why it gained so much popularity throughout the men who were mining for gold. The interesting aspect about its durability is that denim can withstand being against high temperatures, like an iron, without any damage appearing on the jacket.
How to Select the Right Denim Jacket
Once you have finished the process of deciding if the denim jacket has all the desired features and designs that will fit your preference. Selecting the correct size and fit of your jacket is crucial, and you can refer to the Marbek sizing guide for advice on how to properly measure your shoulder width, back length, sleeve length, and waist circumference and select the correct size that would best fit and flatter your body type.
Overall Denim Jacket Fit
Due to the slim fit design of the denim jacket, it is essential that the jacket fits correctly and looks appropriate and flattering on the wearer. It is recommended that after the wearer begins wearing the jacket, they should go through a series of tests and movements to be assured that they have the correct fitting jacket. Unlike other jackets, the denim jacket is made to have a snug and slim fitting appearance.
The recommended way to check if the jacket is going to fit in the shoulder area is to have the wearer look behind them. If the jacket feels snug, yet comfortable, then the wearer has the correct size. However, in some cases, the wearer should go down in jacket size unless planning on wearing additional thick layers under the denim jacket.
It is important to check to see where the jacket falls in comparison to the wearer’s natural waistline. If it sits below the beltline at all then it should be exchanged for a smaller size – when it comes to this jacket, the correct and most flattering fit is when the hem lands directly on your beltline or just slightly above it.
Materials Used in the Denim Jacket
The denim jacket is primarily made of either 100% cotton or a cotton-polyester synthetic blend. Each one of these materials is ideal for the production of denim jackets. However, most modern day denim jackets use cotton due to its durability and lightweight feeling.
This material is an extremely soft and fluffy staple fibre. It is commonly found in most modern men’s and women’s apparel and household items, such as bedding. The density of cotton made it an ideal material to be used in the production of denim jackets. However, wearers must be cautious of washing denim jackets made of this material since it is prone to early fading is washed incorrectly.
Cotton-Polyester Synthetic Blend
This material is known to be extremely stretchier, lightweight, and less prone to wrinkling compared to its pure cotton counterpart. Denim created with this blende is more resistant to shrinking, and it has a high durability. It is ideal for wearers who plan on wearing their jackets on a daily basis or while doing outdoor activities in the spring.
How to Care for a Denim Jacket

It is recommended to closely follow the care instructions provided to ensure the full longevity of the denim jacket. Regarding cleaning, if the wearer is only spotted cleaning, then there is no need to have the denim jacket go through a washing cycle in the machine. Instead, it is recommended to use a teaspoon of laundry detergent on the spot and clean it with a wet rag. The cleaning process should be from inside to outside to ensure no staining will remain. With hand washing, the jacket must soak in cold water with laundry detergent. Wash the jacket gently before hanging it up to air dry.
