We’ve hit the point in spring where mornings and evening can be a bit chilly and the afternoon is on the warmer side. The need for a real coat is really out of the question, so the best options is the trusty trucker jacket. A true MVP in your wardrobe, the trucker jacket pairs best with those dope pants you’ve been waiting to wear and will give your t-shirts new life.
Coming in suede, denim, chino, leather or corduroy — the trucker jacket is one of the few pieces that’s okay to own more than one. Below are our 5 favorite to buy right now.
The Long Haul Jacket in Organic ’68 Selvage – Taylor Stitch
A classic indigo wash selvage denim trucker with slightly angled chest pockets has a special type of character. Wear it as much as possible and it’ll develop those beautiful age whiskers
Camel Suede Trucker – Treasure & Bond
Perfect for pairing with white denim or dark wash jeans, a camel suede trucker jacket is basically the spring blazer 2.0
Camo. Love it or hate it, it’s here to stay. And, no one does it better than Ralph Lauren. This is the must have trucker jacket of the season and looks good with everything. Try it with a pair of black tuxedo pants (trust me on that one)
“White Out” Trucker Jacket – Levi’s
Less 80’s rocker and more modern day style upgrade. If you already have a mid-wash blue and black trucker jacket, add a white one to your spring arsenal for an unexpected style swerve.
Olive Green Trucker Jacket – Eleventy
Olive green is the color of the last few years and it looks damn good as a trucker. Think of this as the perfect spring/summer jacket to pair with everything (plus, its lightweight)
