As child I was impressed about trucks. Especially American trucks. But I never wanted to be a trucker. Probably a right decision. The majority of truckers are poor guys. Exploited and at the end of the “food chain”. I’m an employee with logistical background and I know what I’m speaking about. Writing.
Nevertheless a piece of clothing that got its name from the profession of truckers celebrates its 50th birthday. The Levi’s Type III Trucker Jacket. A classy denim jacket. The birth name was 70505. Since then not only its name has developed.
But the jacket has never lost its typical style and recognition. Also the number of fans and wearers increased quickly and the trucker jacket landed on rock stages, cowboy horses and finally in the streets. Happy birthday.
