    A- It's denim with big buttons. (The type of cloth.)
    A- It's jeans with big buttons. :cross: (My jacket is actually trousers.)
    A- It's a jeans jacket with big buttons. (It is most likely made of denim like the trousers but it might be a style that goes matches the trousers.)

    I've heard of a "jean jacket", but much more often a "denim jacket". Never a "jeans jacket".

    In order of preference:
    A3 - It's a denim jacket with big buttons. (male or female)
    A1 - It's a jeans jacket with big buttons. (female only)
    A2 - It's jeans with big buttons.

    We always called the garment a "jeans jacket" when I was growing up (western U.S., 1950s and '60s). More recently, I've only heard "denim jacket."

    "Jean jacket" in the Midwest, '70s. I think you're right that "denim jacket" is the more common term now, though.

    I use the term jean jacket more than denim jacket, although both are common enough. But never jeans jacket.
