The iconic Levi's Type III Trucker is easily recognizable by the pointed flap pockets, tapered vertical double-line stitching, and slim fitting proportions. It's a style that has been carried forward in time so faithfully that it has barely changed, if at all, over the years - even when interpreted by more contemporary brands into their own translations.

The Type II, entering the market in 1953, kept the knife pleats and basic makeup but added double chest pockets and replaced the cinch back with simpler waist adjusters. The jacket also featured bar tack stitched reinforcement for durability.
