Everlane Review: The Denim Chore Jacket

One of my most worn jackets from Everlane is their modern utility jacket because not only does it look great but the 4 pockets are super useful (especially when I was doing the Airstream business and nowadays when walking the dogs). So when Everlane asked if I wanted to try anything for August, I was immediately drawn to their denim chore jacket because of the 4 pockets. I also currently don’t have a denim jacket in my closet so this one fills the need. I’ve tried traditional denim jackets in the past but ended up selling them all because it didn’t feel like me. But a denim chore jacket? This is more like me.

The first thing I noticed right away with this denim jacket was the softness. It didn’t feel rigid like my past denim jackets. This one molded to my body and felt almost like a favorite vintage jacket. When I went back to the product description, I found out it’s because they made this jacket intentionally with a looser weave to get that worn-in feel.

I’m wearing a small here and it fits slightly on the oversized side, which to me makes for a perfect chore jacket (who wants a tight fitting jacket when doing chores lol). But for those who want a more fitted look, you can probably get away with sizing down.

The one negative I will say about this jacket though is that there was a funky smell to it when I first got it. I immediately washed it before wearing and it helped alleviate most of the smell. It’ll probably need a couple more washes before it’s completely smell free.

And if you already have too many denim jackets, then they also released this chore jacket in corduroy. The corduroy jackets would also be warmer and perfect for Fall!

Also you can see how another blogger styles this jacket here (Jamie sized down for a more fitted look).
