Style Pick of the Week: Levi’s Made & Crafted Type II Trucker Jacket

A newly iconic silhouette from an iconic brand.

Does it get much better when it comes to classic spring style than an equally classic denim jacket from Levi’s? Not really, folks. The rugged, timeless denim jacket is a surefire way to take your spring style from good to great, especially when that jacket happens to be the Levi’s Made & Crafted Type II Trucker Jacket — in short, it’s the one piece of spring outerwear you need now. And what can it do that other jackets can’t? Plenty. It’s got a unique silhouette designed with the open road in mind — Levi’s pioneered the trucker jacket, with its multitude of pockets, for West Coast explorers and Gold Rush diggers, and that same heritage and history can be found in the Levi’s Made & Crafted Type II Trucker Jacket today. In fact, it’s all the more helpful that the Made & Crafted line itself plays off that heritage in a way that’s even more authentic than the regular Levi’s main line. Designs happen to be based on archival styles from the brand, so it’s no surprise that they’ve crushed it with the Levi’s Made & Crafted Type II Trucker Jacket.

So, what makes the timeless denim jacket a worthwhile addition to your spring outerwear rotation, particularly when you might be more inclined to reach for a weather-ready waxed canvas jacket or a water-resistant parka? Well, those styles are all well and good … but none of them can match the rugged versatility of the Levi’s Made & Crafted Type II Trucker Jacket, and that’s just … the way it is.

Levi's Made & Crafted

Authentic detailing lifts this jacket a cut above the rest.

The Levi’s Made & Crafted Type II Trucker Jacket also features the sort of stylish details and easygoing appeal you’d expect from a spring denim jacket, including the use of 100 percent cotton. That makes it an easy choice to wear with laidback spring essentials, from a crisp white tee and tan chinos to suede chukka boots, black denim and a white Oxford shirt (a suitably edgy mix of high-low style).

The Levi’s Made & Crafted Type II Trucker Jacket also features the perfect amount of room for your everyday carry essentials, what with front hip patch pockets. Again, this underrated denim jacket is unique, eye-catching and absolutely ready for whatever you throw at it, from patio happy hours to farmer’s market visits to a weekend brewery tour (and then some). It’s assuredly what you would expect when on the hunt for a classic denim jacket from Levi’s — what are you waiting for?
