A good jacket should protect the skin from a skating slam or a roll around in the bushes, should air out well the morning after an evening of bar-hopping, should keep biting wind at bay during dawn patrols and look good enough to draw wanted attention from wandering eyes. On paper, a denim jacket with a cord collar shouldn’t work. But, it does! And ticks off all points on the above list. It don’t stop there, either – skater Anthony Van Engelen’s signature Vans jacket is also flannel-lined for added toast and taste, with button-closure cuffs and four pockets to hold all your not-unimportant junk. Whatchya waiting for?
