Jean Trucker Jacket – Men

No nonsense denim. The way it should be. Behold the jean trucker jacket men are all talking about.

Jean Trucker Jacket

The jean trucker jacket is a men’s fashion staple. 

Featuring denim, a button-down closure, and chest pockets with iconic flap designs, the jacket has been a staple for urban streetwear for the better part of the 20th century. 

Originally created for male truck drivers in the 1930s, the jean trucker jacket quickly gained popularity among various subcultures, from rock stars to counterculture movements. From there, it entered stores at an alarming (albeit unsurprising) rate. 

Whether you go for a classic blue wash or opt for a unique embroidered design, the jean trucker jacket is sure to add an edge to any outfit.

From Denim To Jean

We think it’s good to know your roots. The same can be said for our jackets. 

The term "jean jacket" originated from the fabric it is typically made of: denim. 

Denim, which was originally a sturdy cotton twill fabric used for workwear, gets its name from the city Nimes in France where it was first produced in the 18th century. 

As denim became popular for laborers and cowboys in the United States, manufacturers started producing jackets made out of the durable fabric. Eventually, these jackets became known as "jean jackets," reflecting the material they were made from. 

Today, jean jackets can be made from other materials like corduroy or canvas, but their association with denim remains strong. Colloquially, the term "jean jacket" is used interchangeably with "denim jacket."

Simple, Stylish Design

A jean trucker jacket for men is a classic, simplistic jacket typically made from denim fabric. 

It often has a button-down closure and a collar, as well as pockets on the chest and at the hips. Some designs also include buttons or flaps on the pockets for added style and functionality. 

Your jacket may also have adjustable buttons or snaps on the cuffs and waistline, for a more customized fit.

Is a trucker jacket a denim jacket?

The term "trucker jacket" is often used interchangeably with "denim jacket," but there are some key distinctions between the two styles. 

A traditional trucker jacket typically has a fitted waist and chest, pointed flap pockets, and button closures. A denim jacket, on the other hand, can vary in fit and style, from boxy cuts to oversized fits. 

The denim fabric itself may also differ - trucker jackets often use stiffer, durability-focused denim while denim jackets can incorporate softer wash treatments or even different fabrics altogether.

What is a Canadian Tuxedo?

A "Canadian tuxedo" is the ultimate statement fashion choice: denim on denim.

This look originated in the 1950s at a Vancouver rodeo, where Bing Crosby was denied entry for wearing a denim jacket and pants. However, the outfit soon gained popularity in the popular culture world, being worn by celebrities such as Brittney Spears and Justin Timberlake. 

Though it may have originally been considered a faux pas, the Canadian tuxedo has now become a playful and edgy fashion statement. Despite its name, this look is not exclusive to Canada and can be rocked by anyone with enough confidence to wear head-to-toe denim. 

You can get your Canadian tuxedo from our online store, starting with a neat new jean trucker jacket – men.
