Levi’s® announces “Levi’s® Sherpa-Lined Trucker Jacket by Opening Ceremony”, one in a series of special edition Made in the USA Trucker Jackets for Fall 2010

This fall, Levi’s® has collaborated with 5 brands to create a series of special edition Levi’s® Work Wear Trucker Jackets, all hand-crafted in the USA. Whether they integrate a signature work wear technology like Filson’s oiled tin cloth, or pay tribute to the distinct aesthetic of a group of American workers, each jacket explores the endless potential of Levi’s® iconic garment through the lens of the respective partnering brand.

Thus far this season, we have 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.
