    Need a bit of help buying a denim jacket

    Hey everyone

    I'm still having a bit of trouble finding a denim jacket to buy even though I really want one. I'm still not entirely sure what to go for even after reading about the forums and reading several articles.

    I'm a student so I don't have much money so I'll appreciate a not so high price range.

    I've heard a lot of good things about the ASOS denim jackets however I'm willing to look into alternatives too.
    The Allsaints jackets are a bit too expensive for me and I probably wouldn't buy anything from there unless it was on sale anyway.

    Also, I wear quite a bit of navy (cardigans, jumpers, chinos, etc) so I'm not sure if I should really get something that's too similar in tone to navy.

    I quite like the look of the light wash denim jackets because I can contrast it quite well with my clothing, but I think it may be a bit too much since I'm pale skinned so it might look a bit odd. I've also heard a bit of a debate of light wash being a bit of a trend right now which I can't really afford to buy in to so maybe it's best investing into a darker wash.

    Cheers guys, I really would appreciate any recommendations you have for me.

    I would look toward eBay for a reasonable AS denim jacket (if you dont mind that). You'll pick one up reasonably cheap, and if you dont like it after a while, you can sell it just the same.

    Yo, dunno what size you are but I'm selling this Bershka one on eBay right now as I upgraded to All Saints

    I def prefer light wash ones to dark wash, as you say they contrast much better with navy etc and are more versatile too; I can't see myself wearing a dark one in summer.

    Or you could try a second hand Levi's denim, they go reasonably cheap on eBay too, it's where I got mine for about 20. The only thing I would point out is if it's not advertised as a slim fit then get a size down, this is what I had to do, I ended up buying 2 because of this!
