Introduced in 1969, the Levi’s Authentic Trucker Jacket is no doubt an iconic piece as every detail has that classic Levi’s feel making it timeless. My jacket is done in a beautiful vintage Rosebud Blue wash. Its clean light indigo cast with whitish speckles of slubby denim and paled areas of slight handsanding complements about any color in your outfit and gives a great versatility that more complex, overworked washes rarely do. The semi-matte light silver buttons are quite understated and won’t overpower the rest of the hardware in your ensemble which is also a plus.
Don’t let the “Trucker” name confuse you – this jacket definitely has a feminine side to it J The fit is actually very girly and accentuates the shape of a woman’s body perfectly. This silhouette with its spot-on front and back seaming is pretty slim and gives much needed structure to create a great shape. The sleeves are narrower and a bit shorter than a typical jean jacket and therefore make your arms look longer and leaner. I also like that it is cropped which allows you to wear it with both separates and dresses.
The Levi’s Design Team picked an awesome fabric for their Trucker Jacket! This slubby denim has an incredibly nice hand feel and is super soft. That’s why, even considering the slim fit and the fact that the fabric is 100% cotton, this jacket is still incredibly comfortable. With that said the medium weight of the denim helps to support the structure of the garment.
I got my “Trucker” in XS and it couldn’t fit any better! Everything from the shoulder width to the length of the sleeves is perfect, almost like it was custom made for me. Oh, how I wish J
The Levi’s Authentic Trucker Jacket is a fantastic piece! Always stylish and trendy, never boring or tired, it is an absolute MUST HAVE and with a $58 price tag is quite a steal!
