While we’d never suggest getting decked-out in a Canadian tuxedo, we’re firm believers that every man should have a denim jacket in their wardrobe. But, while denim is plenty durable in normal day-to-day city life, it’s a bit wanting for folks who find themselves in darker corners of the globe. Luckily, Patagonia has infused the style staple with a lot more durability with their Steel Forge Dyneema Denim Jacket.
Looking like something you might see Steve McQueen or Bruce Springsteen wearing, there’s no denying how stylish this denim jacket is. Take a closer look and you’ll realize that it’s even more impressive, thanks to the construction of USA-made fabric produced by Cone Mills. But while it certainly has its appearance and heritage pegged, the real star of the show is the Dyneema mixed into it – a synthetic material that’s said to be 15 times stronger than steel. For $199, you can add this indestructible outerwear garment into the rotation and feel good about the fact that it will probably outlast you.
