Jean jackets that aren't jean jackets

The garden variety jean jacket is a wardrobe staple for many women.  Versatility is the middle name of the jean jacket. It can be worn so many ways and practically everywhere except church and a conservative office. 

Still, the ubiquitous jean jacket is not really my style. Kind of boxy, kind of stiff.  I'd like the options it provides with a little less western flare.

How about a collarless version?  This one by Helmut Lang is a win.

Maybe a vaguely Chanel-inspired style, like this by Textile Elizabeth and James.

The ultimate cool, a denim jacket with leather sleeves, by Veda.
The one most likely to end up in my closet, this Gap denim biker jacket.

Oddly, I am not in love with the Helmut. But I would take the leather-sleeved one in a heartbeat if it didn't cost about $25K.......
