Spending hours or even weeks tracking down your version of the perfect denim jacket is task you won’t regret. It might hurt a little bit at the time (and yes, we’re talking about your bank balance) but once finally you take home “the one”, it’ll change your style for the better every day of the week. Your t-shirts will magically turn into outfits, your work clothes will appear cooler by association, and your collection of cool pants will finally get the partner in crime they deserve. Honestly, it’s probably the most important purchase you’ll make all year (other than, you know, health insurance). So, roll up your sleeves and start matching. Here, 20 GQ-approved options to get you started. Warning: There’s a Saint Laurent in there that may cause heart palpitations.
