2nd week of January and it’s already getting hype as the much anticipated collaboration between Jordan brand and Levi’s is just a matter of days away.
Two icons of sport and style reimagine their roots by combining the beauty of the Air Jordan IV, a personal favourite here at TWOTF, with Levi’s® authentic heritage.
Launching January 17, 2018, and already worn by the likes of Travis Scott and Eric Koston, and of course Dj Khaled the collaboration consists of the Jordan x Levi’s® Air Jordan IV and Jordan Reversible Trucker Jacket.
Carefully balancing the DNA of each brand, authentic denim material brings the Trucker Jacket to life on the Air Jordan IV with a standard wash prominent on the outer and reverse denim material on the sock liner and insole. The globally recognized Levi’s® “Two Horse” tag has been remixed to include the iconic Jumpman logo and is featured on both tongues and the hangtag. Finishing touches include gum details on the outsole, gold stitching, denim-colored laces and the standard Levi’s® Red Tab.
Continuing to honour Jordan Brand and Levi’s® style and soul, the Jordan Reversible Trucker Jacket cues from both staple pieces to complete the capsule. This piece is highlighted by classic Levi’s® Trucker Jacket craftsmanship and quality, Flight Suit inspired wings details and standard Levi’s® and Jordan branding throughout.
“The inspiration is two iconic brands coming together and there’s a lot of energy around both brands at the moment so it’s a great time to collaborate,” says Steven Burns, Levi’s® global design director for men’s bottoms. “The details of the shoes and jackets share the same denim, the same wash, the same threads, the same weight. I like that idea of technical sport apparel mixed with our authentic heritage because it gives it a different kind of edge.”
Levi’s® x Jordan Reversible Trucker Jacket
The Jordan Reversible Trucker Jacket combines our iconic denim Trucker with the crinkle taffeta of the classic Jordan warm-up suit. Worn denim out, red taffeta is stitched into underarm panels for a peek-a-boo flash of color. Meanwhile, the back is adorned with a lightly distressed, silicone raised Flight logo. Reverse it out and you’ve got a perforated, black, crinkle taffeta jacket with a denim accented collar and the Jumpman Flight logo emblazoned on the back.
Customised in all details, the dark-copper shank buttons are co-branded along with the paper patch on the back hem and attached tag.
UK Price: £160

Based on the legendary Jordan IVs, these prewashed, indigo beauties take advantage of warp and weft threading to give the dark-to-light contrast of classic dark denim with a light cuff. A signature Jumpman logo leather patch hangs over the laces.
