You’d be hard-pressed to find a piece of clothing that is woven so thoroughly into the last 100 years of American culture as the trucker jacket. Long before long-haul drivers existed, the ubiquitous denim jacket was the choice of the working man on ranches and railroad lines. It has been worn by hippies and yuppies. It is the uncontested costume of rock made famous by greats like Elvis, Springsteen, Lennon, and Marty McFly. The Ryder Jacket from Taylor Stitch honors the trucker tradition in its own unique and distinctive way.

Made with the 11.5-oz. 100% cotton twill from the legendary Yoshiwa Mills in Japan, the Ryder has a substantial, textured olive green finish that, like Back to the Future, gets better with time.

This trucker is cut at the waistline for a sporty look and more range of motion. Rugged double-needle felled construction and copper tack buttons pair well with the history and color of the piece. While the two lower patch pockets and a pleated front set it apart from other tired entries into the category.

Built where the legend began in the USA, the Ryder Jacket is a go-to throughout fall and California winter. Pre-order yours at a discount right here.
