Non-denim jacket

I need a jacket to wear with jeans, it needs to serve the same function as a denim jacket, but obvs I need to avoid double denim! What do you all wear with jeans? I'm talking about girlfriend/ boyfriend jeans, not smart dark ones. Any suggestions?

I've just bought a blazer, which I intend to wear with jeans.

I have a couple of jersey biker jackets, but none of them are quite right and I'm struggling to find another. Also have a black jersey blazer thing.

I have no idea what girlfriend jeans are though, sorry, or what might go with them! I wear the above with skinnies, rolled up or full length.

Leather is the answer isn't it?

I've got a jersey biker jacket as well, but need more options so watching with interest...

Have three leather jackets - but it's currently too warm for them.

A glorified rain mac if wet, a cardigan if cool, a leather jacket otherwise

Ooh curtains I'm looking for a blazer type jacket.
Where did you get yours (is it too early in the season?)
I don't want a suit jacket but I looked in Uniqlo, Matalan and New Look .

I saw some really nice Wallis mac type coats today.

Double Denim is flipping everywhere where I live hmm

Oh dear, I was hoping someone would have a conclusive answer, but maybe there isn't one! I agree, its too hot for a leather jacket. I have tried the Jersey option but its not quite right, and a blazer feels s bit too smart for grungey jeans.
I haven't given up hope yet, so if anyone finds a solution please post. Thanks for all your replies so far.

Army jacket?

I have a tweedy biker jacket from great plains- it is lovely grin

but still a tiny bit smart, so not always the answer.

This Hush jacket

Army or khaki jacket? A little bit fitted?

DelphiniumBlue Wed 29-Jul-15 22:37:58

I think the Hush one and the Zara one are along the right lines, but a bit boxy for me I look better in something more fitted ( liker my really lovely denim jacket!)
I'd be very grateful for more suggestions - thanks for everything so far.

I wear a navy Harrington type jacket.

I think jersey blazers are the way forward with jeans. Someone once explained their function to me as being only useful for plane journeys, but actually I get quite a lot of wear out of mine! Also have a lovely greyish khaki trenchcoat from M&S, and oversized knitted cardies can look quite good too.

I have a canvas jacket from J Crew it's called The Field jacket.

I'm no fashion guru, but could you maybe get away with another colour of denim jacket? I saw this white one a few days ago and it seemed very versatile - maybe with longer tops to break up the denim-ness?

I've just bought a grey canvas military style jacket from M & S

It looks good with jeans and is the same sort of shape as my denim jacket

It's from the indigo range, no idea how I link...I'm shit at it

I have a jacket from Boden which fills exactly this niche. Unfortunately it's a few years old now, but they still pop up on eBay sometimes; it is called a Photographer Jacket. Plain cotton canvas, with lining, slightly fitted, but definitely casual. Mine's dark grey and goes with everything!

New look have loads of Jersey jackets in their slacks. I've just bought a navy and white striped one which goes well with jeans

Over a hundred quid for a denim jacket???! The White Company are having a laugh!
