Less than two weeks ago, Levi’s dropped the price of its most popular style of men’s jeans, the Levi’s 501, to just $37. But the brand has struck again, this time, slashing the price of its most iconic men’s jacket—the Levi’s Denim Trucker. Along with the 501, the brand’s denim trucker jacket has maintained its spot as a three-season staple among all casual jackets due in large to its versatility.
Right now, you can get the Levi’s Denim Trucker Jacket in multiple washes, including the “Rinse” dark wash, “Falcon” faded light wash, and the “Standard” medium wash for as low as $60—that’s up to 33% off the original price of $90.
With over 16,000 ratings and more than 12,000 of those as perfect marks, this jacket has maintained a justified 4.6-star average, with customers raving about it in the reviews. This jacket is worth every penny at full price, so having any type of discount just sweetens the pot.

The Levi’s “Type III” trucker jacket is the modern blueprint for most trucker jackets today. It’s made from 90% cotton and 2% elastane for a little (highly desired) stretch and is easily a three-season layer because it’s neither too heavy nor too light while helping to block wind and remaining breathable to some degree. It’s also equipped with two outer slant pockets, two chest flap pockets, and two interior fabric pockets—just a door handle shy of being a closet. It also features two waist adjuster buttons, a lay-flat collar, and a button closure.
While the design might describe utility, the jacket is mainly touted for its style in real life and film. It’s been notably donned by bad boys, like Judd Nelson’s “John Bender” in The Breakfast Club or Ryan Gosling’s unnamed character in Drive, but has also been spotted on oceanographers like Richard Dreyfuss’ “Matt Hooper” in Jaws. The versatility of the jacket matches or exceeds that of any of these actors with even longer staying power because it will continue to work with any kind of outfit as the years progress.
Many brands have made their own version of the denim trucker jacket, but Levi’s customers are brand loyal because its style and sizing remain largely unchanged and, therefore, reliable. One customer said, “I’ve owned several of these jackets for the past 15 years. That’s true for my dad as well…the material is great and durable! The fit is the classic to-the-waist fit and fitted. If you’re looking for a loose jacket, buy a size larger than you normally would. Levis knows how to make a good jean jacket!”
Sizing is a hot topic of debate for this trucker jacket. Some feel it should have a snug fit while others prefer a looser fit. However, one customer presented a great rule of thumb when sizing yourself for the Levi’s denim trucker jacket. They said, “Trucker jackets should fit you similar to a biker jacket. Tight in the arms, perfect at the shoulder, and right at your waistline. If you want it looser for your big gains or plan on layering with a bulkier hoodie, order up a size.”
Regardless of how you prefer to style your Levi’s denim trucker jacket, you’ve already made the right choice in adding it to your fall wardrobe. Between the limited-time deal and some sizes already selling out at the discounted $60 price, it behooves you to place your order while still affordable and available.
