The Levi’s® brand recently launched The Commuter that is optimized specifically for the needs of the urban commuter cyclist.  The Commuter is built around the 511® Skinny Jean and the iconic Trucker Jacket.   All Commuter products blend form and function by utilizing the most cutting-edge performance apparel technologies.

Levi’s has teamed up with local bike crews, influential bike shops and individuals to create a unique collaboration project that integrates the creative identity of local heroes with the iconic Trucker Jacket.  The end result is a custom one of a kind piece of wearable art that symbolizes community and cycling.

  • Should we do our own version?

  • I think that’d be epic.

  • God, can you imagine? What sort of jackets would they be? We could get Cork Grips involved, maybe Italian Cycling Journal…

  • Maybe some sort of cotton twill jacket? Couple pockets, zipper and/or buttons. What do you think? We might have something here haha.
