This May has presented us with a manic spring, mixed with moments that feel simultaneously humid and chilly. Yet beyond that thing called utility, in 2012, the go to piece of outerwear, for men and women alike, even in the office, is a jean jacket.
Donning a rumpled denim jacket can exhibit an American sense of cool that is equivalent of Italian sprezzatura. If the fit is right, it can be stylishly foolproof. Think of Kanye West with a white tee, rolled up denim sleeves, khakis, a gold watch, and a pair of Ray Ban’s.
