Since its introduction in the mid 20th century, the trucker jacket has been a menswear essential that reflects rough and rugged Americana at its finest. They’re unassuming yet reliable, functioning as a piece of outerwear for the independent guy who’s not afraid to get things done on his own. It’s versatile, subtly fashionable, and minimal. And now, a fine version of this classic jacket is offered through LA-based Simon Versus.

Dubbed the Atticus Trucker Jacket, each piece boasts a duck cotton canvas that’s been treated with various grades and qualities of waxes; a generations-old formula. Known as TexWax, this material is water repellent, flexible in cold temperatures, and features a high melt point. The Atticus Trucker is also lined with a Japanese polyester sherpa and sleeves made with lightweight pre-shrunk french twill cotton for enhanced comfort. In addition, Simon Versus makes each Trucker Jacket in small batches out of their Los Angeles workshop. Pepper in some antique-finish copper buttons, an eggshell lining, and steel outer shell for good measure and Simon Versus certainly has themselves a winner here.

Purchase: $359
