To Dye For: Nico and His Mysterious Type III
A Vintage Levi Trucker. A Thing of Real Beauty
It’s amazing what you find when like minds come together. A chance meeting reveals one of the most beautiful Levi Type III’s Truckers we’ve ever seen!
These days, there seems to be an abundance of beautifully faded jeans out there but a beautifully faded denim jacket? That is more of a rarity! It is a real vintage find that sets a denimhead’s heart racing.
I met Nico, the owner of this beauty, at the Berlin denim Mecca, Burg & Schild. We instantly got to chatting about his jacket.
It is a Levi Type III Trucker Jacket. But more than this, is a little bit of a mystery. Nico bought it from a friend of his not too long ago and could not really tell us much more about the jacket’s history, other than that it has been well worn and well loved.
Take some time to savour the fades and, in a few days, we will return to delve deeper into the details, ascertaining the approximate production date and seeing what we can assume about the previous owner.
