The Levi's type three jacket, also known as "the trucker jacket" was first introduced in 1962 as a modern style denim jacket. The design has proven to stand the test of time and to this day it's still the most iconic denim jacket ever made by Levi's.
This particular jacket is a vintage one produced in between 69-71. Those are the last jackets produced with a capital E on the red tab, referring to the so called big E era.
This jacket has seen many of days of use and it's visible that it has been loved by the previous owner or owners. The jacket is faded to perfection in a way that only can be achieved with years of use. One can see that it has been worn with cuffed sleeves leaving the lower part of the sleeves darker than the rest. It has also got a small repair at the left sleeve cuff (see picture). If you are looking for a genuine vintage jacket that has a lot of personality in it, this jacket is just perfect!
