Who doesn’t like chocolate? People you want nothing to do with, that’s who. Chocolate haters, I presume, also dislike laughing and puppies and water balloons and all other things that could possibly bring one joy under any circumstance. Not only does it taste amazing, it’s good for your health (if you eat good stuff) and its distinct color palette has inspired a wide range of dyes for clothing—shades that look just as good as they taste.
Produced in Scotland by Simmons Bilt, this chocolate suede version of a Levi’s classic type III trucker jacket takes that original iconic design and makes some considered improvements. To start with, a much higher quality suede has replaced the lower quality rough-out leather used in the original’s only suede variant. The fit has also been tweaked a bit, cut in a more contemporary fit than the original, and this one runs a bit larger than typical 3sixteen jackets, yet smaller than what you may be used to, so sizing up is recommended.
To wrap things up, this beauty comes fully lined and is outfitted with hand pockets and shank buttons, making for one tasty jacket.
