The history of blue jeans begins — and ends, brand loyalists would argue — with Levi’s. In 1873, the U.S. government granted a patent to San Francisco shop owner Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis, a tailor from Reno, Nevada, to make denim work pants strengthened with copper rivets. The two men named their enterprise Levi Strauss & Co., after Strauss’ bustling dry goods store, and launched what became one of the world’s most enduring clothing companies. Levi’s outerwear collection for men and women includes styles to suit every taste—from corduroy jackets and poplin windbreakers to tweed sack coats and field jackets. Handcrafted in North Carolina, Levi’s Made in the USA Selvedge Trucker Jacket is the classic jean jacket — made of heavyweight denim, it’s guaranteed to keep you warm and stylish on chilly nights. Slim fits, premium denim, and timeless cuts have made Levi’s outerwear a wardrobe essential for everyone from punk rockers to blue-collar workers to celebs Cameron Diaz and Kanye West.
