My Latest Obsession: The Distressed Trucker Jacket
August 23, 2011 § Leave a comment
Aside from the moving performances and the host of queer contestants, what I loved about NBC’s The Voice was judge Adam Levine’s penchant for all things denim: denim jeans, denim shirts, denim jackets. His most memorable denim item was a distressed, washed-out trucker jacket with the sleeves rolled-up to reveal his thicket of arm tats.
I found my own version of Levine’s perfectly beat-up denim jacket at Levi’s in Manila. I had to hide it from my mom lest she tried to patch up all the holes.
Despite the seeming chaos of the tears and excess stitching, the jacket details are harmoniously composed and add interesting textures. The overall effect coincides with my past obsession with the patched jean.
