    Hi, i need some expert advice on this one. The seller says it’s leather but on the pics, it looks like fake leather. The Lee MR tag and the round collat makes me think it’s probably from the 80’s. What do you think?

    Do you have a suede conditioner like the Saphir one? I'd definitely use it and then you choose wether to waterproof it or not later.

    Vintage 50s Levi's trucker.

    The sleeves are extremely short (and wide) but I guess that's how truckers were worn back then.

    Fit is great everywhere, except the sleeves do look extremely short. Are you sure they haven't been modified? Usually, they come with cuffs and snaps to close them.

    These are original. I can tell by the wear and the stitching.

    The 60s truckers came with cuffs, 50s without.

    Here's a sherpa lined trucker from the 50s. Same short and wide sleeves.

    Indeed. There's always something to learn. Nice catch anyway.

    I figured I'd post it here for the record, since this is the only one Lost Worlds suede trucker of this type that I have seen. There are a few truckers on Stu's website, but they are different, have snaps instead of buttons and different suede and probably cut. This one was made by Stu for (I think) a Japanese collaborator Twins Acoustic. The suede is pretty hefty, the jacket weighs 3.6 lbs in size 38. I like this jacket quite a bit. A welcome addition to my (nearly) all black leather jacket collection.

    I love it. Personally I'm not a fan of lw jackets at all. They lack character imo. But this one is the exception to the rule :) Great color and you wear it well.

    Hello, found this old Lee leather trucker for $50 on vinted. The liner is a little beat up but the overall condition of the jacket is ok. Judging by the round collar and the tight fit, it's probably a 70/80's model. Can't really tell if it's dark blue or black.

    Yeah, eBay. The way the guy took pictures, the color was a pretty sickly pale yellow, so I took a chance. Turns out the real color is a much deeper ochre shade which I like. A great spring/fall easy wearing jacket.

    Levi's cream blanket lined trucker. Probably 90s, maybe 80s. Leather looks a bit like nubuck.
