Is this THE jacket of autumn? River Island’s £50 denim jacket back in stock after selling out twice

River Island’s must-have denim jacket is back for a third time, after selling out twice in the past month.

The £50 bomber features bronze metal buttons with patch pockets on the chest, for a look that’s both flattering and practical – with the addition of statement puff sleeves.

The timeless piece works perfectly for layering throughout the autumn, while also working as a transitional wardrobe staple that can be teamed with dresses come spring. 

After being spotted on influencers and fashion editors online, the denim jacket has gained a cult following among style followers.

The long sleeve jacket has puff sleeve shoulders, offering a fresh twist on classic summer denim jackets – detail which has proven popular.

Speaking about the popularity of the style, a spokesperson for the brand said: ‘Our puff-sleeve denim jacket sold out in one day the first time round and was being sold over on eBay for three times the original price! 

‘We’re delighted to let our customers know this sought after jacket is now back in stock, with the addition of a black colourway. 

‘We are advising customers to get it quick as 2,400 have already been bagged over the past two days.’
