There are few wardrobe staples more badass and just darn easy to pull off than the trucker jacket. The style was made popular by Levi's back in the '60s and has stayed in the menswear lexicon ever since. This fall Raf Simons reignited interest in the original raw denim version of the jacket when he put one in his first collection for Calvin Klein. That said, he isn't the only one digging the rich cowboy vibe right now. Tom Ford's corduroy trucker jacket is the stuff of dreams—slimmed down, luxed up, with all the right pockets—and Fear of God makes one of the coolest shearling-lined options on shelves this fall. Of course, if you want to show off a little bit, there's always Supreme's reversible velvet take on the iconic shape. It's already sold out (streetwear...) but you can still cop one that's NWT on the secondary market. Don't be surprised if you find yourself slipping down a trucker jacket rabbit hole once you land on those sites. After fifty years in production, the vintage options are pretty much endless. But here, start with these...
