We first covered the Levis Commuter pack way back in early 2013 when it first dropped at Urban Industry. Since then, the cyclist-friendly clothing line has become an integral part of Levi’s seasonal offerings. The new Spring 2014 collection sees advancements in fabric, seasonal colours and utility—designed to take the urban worker from their morning ride, through the workday and into evening.
Levi’s themselves sum it up best – “ride, live and work in the same pair of jeans. Designed for the urban cyclist, our Commuter™ 511™ Slim Fit Jeans provide greater convenience, safety, mobility and protection no matter how you roll”. This isn’t just big talk though as each pair of Levi’s Commuter Series 511 jeans feature a water-resistant and dirt-repellent NanoSphere® protective finish and reflective 3M™ Scotchlite™ tape on interior cuffs.
Personal favourites from this collection include the Levis Commuter Series Trucker Jacket. I cycle to work every day here at Urban Industry and struggle to find the appropriate jacket to wear that isn’t too bulky or too lightweight. This trucker jacket looks like the ideal solution as it is water and dirt repellent as well as featuring antimicrobial technology for protection against odours. So I won’t be wet and honking basically, and that is all we can hope to achieve in life.
