Bought myself one today on the advice of my daughter! I absolutely love it and it will go with so many things.
Makes me feel young and trendy again!
I’m 66 and a size 14!
Anyone else got one?

I had one but my youngest daughter appears to have adopted it!

I have two a white and dark denim. Love wearing it over a dress , skirts , white jeans. Never double denim though , and I am 72. Never too old for a denim jacket !

I had two, dark denim and light denim but I gave them away to the charity shop. I see they're back in fashion now and have been looking out for another one.

I've had my dark blue one for years and it's rarely been out of use. Looks particularly good with my summer dresses.

I quite fancy one! ?

I have one it’s very old and comfy and I have a dusky pink one too, not very warm though unless I wear lots of Woollies underneath .

Chewbacca Wed 23-Sep-20 21:13:26

Whaaaattt? You mean that you haven't got a denim jacket in that mountain of jackets/coats Marydoll? Get yourself online immediately! grin

Design classic.

Bought my first one ever in the summer; a sort of dusty pink colour from M&S. It's very comfortable and I love it but I agree with Lilypops - double denim is just wrong.

LadyBella Wed 23-Sep-20 21:33:08

Hmmm.. On older ladies, not sure. Dusky pink not bad but blue denim... don't think so. Sorry.

NannyJan53 Wed 23-Sep-20 21:33:10

I have 3. Dark denim, light denim and white. I'm 67, in fact I wore the light one tonight with black trousers, Never double denim!

I’m 72 and I have had a mid indigo one since last summer - gets compliments (even) from my very style aware DDs , I also have a pink and a cream one from Joules for when I am in jeans as I don’t do double denim.

Denim jacket - fine whatever your age (if you have the figure for it) but it's a bit too chilly here.

My friend got a leather jacket (simply because she'd 'never had one') and looks pretty silly in it!

Lisagran Wed 23-Sep-20 21:47:14

I have the dusky pink one from M and S too, Scribbles - love it! Looks great over longer dresses or jeans.

fevertree Wed 23-Sep-20 21:51:00

I've been longing for my denim jacket with the (faux) sheepskin collar! Why did I ever give it away? smile

TheFrugalPiggy Wed 23-Sep-20 22:00:42

I adore my mine. I've had several over the years. They go with everything and I even wore one with an evening dress once and it looked great!

Jaxjacky Wed 23-Sep-20 22:01:43

Denim jacket and denim shirt, love them both.

paddyanne Wed 23-Sep-20 22:06:44

I wear mine with maxi dresses and over a couple of plain knitted dresses I have with knee high boots.looks great .Never too old for denim.

Lucca Wed 23-Sep-20 22:12:53

I got one last year and I love it over Zara dresses or long shirt/linen tunic and trousers. Definitely not too old ....I’m 70. Apparently. How did that happen?

MerylStreep Wed 23-Sep-20 22:21:59

I've still got my John Rocha original and straight denim skirt from the 80s. Never to be seen together, though ?

Marydoll Wed 23-Sep-20 23:17:11

You lot are wicked, leading me astray!!!
I have just bought a white Monsoon one for the princely sum of £4.50.
It was originally £49, reduced to £24.50 in the sale.
I had £20 of reward vouchers and got free next day delivery.
It was an offer I couldn't refuse. wink

I'm so easily led. ?

NotSpaghetti Wed 23-Sep-20 23:22:49

My mother-in-law has one. She wears it fairly often this time of year.
She's 96

Chewbacca Wed 23-Sep-20 23:32:32

Marydoll! shock £4.50? envy knew you wouldn't be able to resist! grin

Marydoll Wed 23-Sep-20 23:37:57

Chewy, it's your fault! You know me so well. ?
