We’ve been fans of many of the Levi’s Commuter pieces since we first sampled them, and this year the iconic denim brand is expanding the line and adding women’s pieces.
Inspired by and designed for cyclists, the collection bridges from casual wear to performance by using stretchy fabrics that keep you comfortable and design details that work well on the bike.
Brooks introduced its unique Cambium saddle a year ago, with its rubber base and cotton top, and now the British brand is teaming up with an American counterpart to produce a limited edition version with a recycled denim top.Tweet Print
We got a box of Levi’s Commuter gear in recently, and while some of the pants fit, I’ve come to terms with the fact that my 40 year old self isn’t of the generation that gets along with skinny, tapered jeans. Luckily in the same box were two Hooded Trucker jackets.
Not that I’ve spent a lot of time around truck stops, but I don’t recall a lot of truckers wearing jackets like this, but maybe the hipsters are moving from wanna-be lumberjack to wanna-be trucker. Wanna-be or not, this is a good looking jacket, cut nicely for riding and standing around, with some very discrete features that work well for riding.Tweet Print
