Glenn's Denim - GD211 Trucker Jacket in Black
Brand: Glenn's Denim
If somebody says "denim jacket" chances are, what they have in their mind, more specifically, is the trucker jacket. This style of denim jacket wasn't the original, and there have been endless other styles created since, but its without question the most iconic and universally loved. Its been reinterpreted, tweaked, and re-shaped over the years by countless designers and makers, but a few key things define the style: the front and rear yoke, a somewhat "V" shaped silhouette, a shorter body length that hits around the waistline, and most recognizably, the two button flap pockets at the chest.
Glenn's Denim offer their take on this classic item in two fits. This one, the GD211 is their slim-fit version. The snug body, high armhole, narrow shoulders and slim sleeves reference a 1970's silhouette - body-hugging, with a shorter length that hits just at the waistline.
SIZING AND FIT:
- Slim Fit
- The length is shorter, designed to end at the waistline.

- If you prefer to preserve the garment's original color and character for as long as possible, and allow for more dramatic natural fading, we recommend washing infrequently, and when you do, we recommend cold washing and hang drying. If you would like the garment to have a more broken-in, washed and faded look, machine wash and dry with like colors.
