Let it be said that for a brand based in the U.K., Marshall Artist channels Americana cool pretty well. The young British menswear line first caught our eye at PROJECT NY, and their spring 2012 collection is definitely worth a closer look–if you don’t check out the details, you will miss out. From afar, their range of utilitarian pieces look like the story of when L.L. Bean met J. Crew, but we’re really celebrating the details that make these chambray jackets, selvedge denim, and fishermen sweaters distinctly stylish, yet fully functional in sportier environs. For instance, let’s all drool over the fact that many of their naval- and military-inspired chambray jackets are waterproof. Denim in the rain? Yeah, we can totally get behind that.

Halloween is approaching, the leaves are changing, and let’s face it, it’s getting cold out! In case you didn’t know, jean jackets are the ultimate essential item for this season for both women and men. They are lightweight enough to not have you traveling in a sweat and are such an easy piece to layer with. Why we really love them though is because no matter what kind of look you personally like to go for, denim is the one thing that always remains stylish and functional! Check out some of our favorites below!

So you told us you refused to have a denim tattoo, but what about a denim wedding? We didn’t think this could be done in a charming, non-cheesy way, but someone has successfully pulled off a denim-accented wedding, setting the stage for future denim-loving couples to follow suit. Chambray suit jackets, pocketed-denim frocks, and even a tailored denim bustier can be seen in the mix! Refreshingly classy, non? They paired their denim clothes & accents with an awesome monogrammed wooden walkway for photos. It was an overcast day, so the clouds matched their color scheme perfectly. This is the ultimate denim-lovers’ romance.
