A denim or jeans jacket is true piece of American iconic fashion. The waist-length jacket has button-banded cuffs, an adjustable banded waist and is distinguished by large metal buttons, front buttoned breast pockets sewn on the outside and side slit pockets.
Introduced around 1905 by Levi Strauss, the denim jacket was created to be worn with jeans by outdoor workers of the time. Lumberjacks, miners and cowboys liked the jacket because of its warmth, comfort and durability.
Today, it is an enduring American fashion item. According to the U.S. organization Cotton Incorporated, every American owns at least one well-worn denim jacket and many people have a sentimental attachment to their favorite.
