Levi’s® Men’s Style Guide:

How to Wear Outerwear

November 21, 2018

Sure, jackets keep you warm and cozy—but when it comes to wearing them in a way that’s easy, iconic and foolproof, you might need a little bit of guidance. That’s why we asked Levi’s® Director of Design Nick Rendic to talk you through exactly what you need to know. From mixing multiple styles in the same look, to the tried-and-true jeans and tee approach, we’ve got everything covered.

“The first rule of layering: it should be easy.”

The heaviest in the line-up—but don’t worry, you can take its lining out. This military-inspired classic looks great over a trucker and denim and will keep you warm no matter what the weather’s like outside.

Sherpa-lined for comfort and waxed for durability, this jacket is sharp and streamlined, with blazer-like proportions. It’s the perfect pick when you want to look more elevated—think dark denim, button-ups and leather shoes.

We all know that the Trucker is as versatile as it gets. For an extra-modern and casual style, try layering it over a hoodie. Full-zip or pullover, with tied or untied drawstrings, it’ll draw everyone’s eyes upward while looking extra fresh.
