The Third Collaboration

For the third time, Levi’s collaborates with Japanese retailer Beams. They created a so-called ‘Super-Wide’ collection for Spring Summer 2022. The collection is based on authentic American Levi’s styles but tweaked into ‘Super-Wide’ fits.

The Collaboration Collection

The Levi’s x Beams collection sees old-school versions of the legendary Trucker jacket, the classic Type-1 style, but with a stretched-out wider and baggier fit. Next to the jacket, they developed a simple plain pocket tee, and jeans too. The jeans is a straight button fly pair of jeans.

All the items in the ‘Super-Wide’ collection feature super-wide details next to the fits as the back patch, pockets, and even the button fly. Everything is super wide which makes this collaboration super special. The super-wide back patch is branded with Beams in orange next to the original Levi’s design. Inside the Type-1 Trucker jacket, they used a selvedge seam, something that isn’t common on the regular version. To top it off, the washing are vintage-inspired as they have a faded finish.
