Thus far this season, Levi’s has unveiled truckers from this series, designed in partnership with Filson and Billy Reid.
The latest, arriving in-stores now, is the launch of a new work wear-inspired trucker jacket designed in collaboration with downtown New York’s leading fashion boutique Opening Ceremony. The Trucker features a patchwork of rigid denims as well as a traditional work wear fabric: the railroad stripe. The inclusion of sherpa into the jacket makes it perfect for cold weather and serves as a nod to the ranchers that popularized the Trucker jacket throughout the last century. This jacket is shrunken down and fits short and snugly. It comes in both a men’s and women’s version and is accompanied by a matching unisex 505 in the customized Opening Ceremony fit.
The Levi’s Sherpa Lined Trucker Jacket and Railroad Striped 505 by Opening Ceremony will be available this week at Opening Ceremony stores and better boutiques worldwide as well as on Levi.com in the US. The jacket will retail for $300.00 and the 505 jeans will retail for $210.00.
