most universal denim jacket. The silhouette is straight on the body with
armholes and sleeves designed for maximum mobility and comfort,
featuring welt pockets that offer style and functionality.
This jacket tends to run
small, so we suggest ordering true to size for a tailored fit and up a
size for a more relaxed fit.

The Levi's Type III Jacket
is twas first introduced in 1967 and second only to the 501® Jeans in
the Levi's portfolio of iconic garments. Worn by ranchers, rock stars,
truck drivers and rebels, it's known today as the "Trucker Jacket." It's
the most recognizable design of Levi's denim jackets, which have
continually evolved throughout the 20th century.
Levi Strauss & Co. has been
innovating since the birth of the first pair of jeans on May 20th, 1873.
One day the wife of a local laborer asked Jacob Davis, a tailor and one
of Levi's loyal customers, to make a pair of pants for her husband that
wouldn't fall apart. Jacob came up with the idea to put metal rivets at
points of strain, like pocket corners and the base of the button fly.
Davis collaborated with Levi and soon the first riveted clothing was
made and sold. The first pair of 'jeans' were made from traditonal
denim, a popular choice of fabric for men's workwear, and within a very
short time the jean was a bona fide success.
