Denim jacket update - go collarless

A denim jacket has been in my wardrobe for as long as I can remember. It used to be like my second skin, and my friends were of the same persuasion: we could often be seen going around together like a denim jacket clad army.

I"ve not worn my denim jacket for ages, but when I saw this one in GAP, I fell for it instantly. And when it went in the sale I snapped it up for £14.99 (although strangely it's now gone back up to £24.99, still in the sale). And Jigsaw is also doing a version this summer, as is Topshop in white. I'm drawn to this style of jacket because of it's round necked and short, which is a style I seem to favour.

And this is something which you could easily do a DIY and create yourself: studying the collar of my old denim jacket, it looks easily removable, so just remove it using a quick unpick, and then leave the edge raw, just sewing about 5mm from the edge of the neckline to prevent further fraying.
