Hello helloooo! So, I’ve done many reviews for jeans already, but I am excited for this installment because this is the first review I’ve done for a denim jacket! Today I’m bringing you a Levi’s® Authentic Trucker Jacket in Forever Dark review! Levi’s® is one of the few companies that has stood the test of time as a classic American denim brand and continues to produce a variety of more modern styles, but stays true to its original roots with items from their Icon Collection such as the Trucker Jacket, the well-loved 501 jeans and Western Shirts. The Trucker Jacket is the first of its kind since 1969, and is tailored to a nice slim feminine fit in the original 100% denim blend. I was excited to review this jacket, since I was in the market for a nice dark denim jacket and have been eyeing it for awhile in my local Levi’s® outlet store!
When I first received the Trucker Jacket, I was excited at the look of the wash…it’s a beautiful dark blue blend with contrast orange stitching and the iconic red Levi’s® tag on the inside of the left pocket. The wash is faded in all the right areas, and once I wore this jacket outside, I was impressed with how vibrant the blue was! As for fit, I took my usual size small, and it fit perfectly and has kept its shape. The tailoring really is great…I almost feel like it was made just for me. I can button it up with it fitting snug but in a flattering way…not restrictive at all. It hits right above my hip at a 16 3/4″ center front length, and the 100% cotton blend is nice and thick yet soft, keeping me warm enough while remaining breezy when the weather can’t seem to make up its mind.
I love the detailing on this jacket. It features button-flap chest pockets and welt hand pockets, and there is a handy interior pocket on both sides so I can run quick errands without needing a bag if I’m carrying minimal items. Each sleeve has a button at the wrist if I wanted to fold back the cuffs and there are adjustable tabs in the back if I wanted to tighten it at the waist (although I like it as it is). As mentioned, it is labeled with the classic red Levi’s® tag on the left pocket and it is finished off with an attractive light orange stitching.
I am so glad I got to do this Levi’s® Authentic Trucker Jacket in Forever Dark review! This piece goes with everything in my closet, and even looks good with another pair of jeans (I don’t often prefer the denim-on-denim look), although in this review I’m wearing them with my Old Navy Rockstar Zip Pocket Pants. This jacket is incredibly versatile and I can’t get over the wash color! I really can’t come up with anything I’d change about it. I’d recommend the Authentic Trucker Jacket to every woman looking for a quality, well-fitting denim jacket…and at 100% cotton, you know it’s going to last you just about forever, like a Levi’s® icon is meant to.
