The Trucker Jacket Explained

It’s the real O.G. Your lifelong pal. An icon that needs no introduction. But these days the Trucker Jacket comes in a wide range of styles—all worth knowing. Follow along as we discuss how the jacket worn everywhere from Tulsa to Tokyo varies between styles, from slimmest to roomiest. Then find the one that’s right for you.

Original Trucker

This trucker is classic to a T. Your top pick for layering year-round, and available for both men and women. Wear The Original over tees and button-downs, or under heavier coats in cooler months. You’ll get a tailored fit that’s cut closer to the shoulders, snug in the body and hits at the hip. Tip: Size up if you want to wear it over thicker layers like sweaters and hoodies.

Ex-Boyfriend Trucker

Look cool in this borrowed-from-the-boys favorite. The women’s Ex-Boyfriend Trucker is our relaxed-fit jacket with a slight drop shoulder, longer sleeves and elongated hem that hits just past the hip. This style runs true-to-size and leaves room for layering chunky knits underneath.

Vintage Trucker

Our ’90’s-inspired Vintage Trucker feels perfectly worn-in on day one. Choose this fit if you’re looking for an oversized style that’s looser in the shoulders, offers more room in the chest and arms, and has longer sleeves. This one’s designed for men but we think it looks great on women, too. Order a size down and you’ll find that the fit is similar to our Ex-Boyfriend Trucker, but roomier.

Dad Trucker

Our women’s Dad Trucker is our most oversized fit and gives you plenty of room to play with proportions. Embrace the ’90’s resurgence with this jacket’s exaggerated drop shoulders, long-on-purpose sleeves and an elongated hem that hits past the hip. You’ll give off major vintage vibes whether you drape it over your shoulders or wear it over cozy pieces this winter.
