How To Patch & Pin Your Levi’s Jacket

The Levi’s Trucker Jacket is the perfect canvas to express yourself. This year, Levi’s is celebrating the 50th anniversary of their classic jacket, and to honor this special milestone, we’re going to walk you through how to personalize your very own!

But first… a quick Levi’s Trucker Jacket history!

Late 1800’s — Levi’s invented the denim jacket.

Who wore it? Miners on the west coast — the rivets, pleats, and durable fabric made it an essential for their work attire.

1967 — It became an icon! With a slimmer fit, two front pockets, and a signature ‘V’ front, the Type III Trucker Jacket was born.

 Who wore it? Cowboys, rebels, and rock stars personalized their jacket with patches, pins, and rips.

Today — Levi’s Trucker Jacket celebrates its 50th anniversary!

Who wears it? Everyone! There’s a perfect style for any look, and we’re going to show you how to take this classic fit and make it yours.

How To Personalize Your Trucker

  1. Buy your favorite Levi’s Trucker Jacket.
  2. Find your favorite patches and pins! Can be found at most craft stores or online.
  3. Make sure your patches have that thin, matte-finish paper on the back for ironing.
  4. Pull out your ironing board and plug in your iron.
  5. To get a good idea of where you want your pins and patches to go, we suggest laying them out on the jacket first.
  6. You can utilize the whole jacket — place your patches on the sleeves, front, back, or on the pockets to match your personal style.
  7. Once your iron is warmed, start ironing your patches. Make sure patches are lying flat against the jacket with no creases under them.
  8. Hold iron over the patch for 30-60 seconds — make sure to get those edges!
  9. Place your pins in areas that will complement your patches.

And there you have it — now it’s time to slip on the jacket and rock it!
