Recently I found this master piece of Levi’s Trucker Jacket from the 60’s. It has the original Big E tab on the pocket and it’s customized by the pre-owner. During the 60’s a lot of hippies customized their jackets. I like the painted buttons on the frontside, but the back from the jacket is even more a piece of art. It’s a great painted skull with a real old school red bandana. Very cool that a lot of people made their jackets (and also jeans) more personal with adding some of their way of life on it. Would be great if this would become a next trend again on the streets. We will see of this trend will return like a lot influences from back in the days. But for now, check out this great piece from the sixties.
