The rise of wearable technology means a denim jacket can be “smart” in both senses of the term, which definitely applies to the Levi’s Commuter x Jacquard by Google Trucker Jacket, which combines the timeless, rugged style of Levi’s with the smart technology of Google.
As its somewhat cumbersome full name suggests, the Levi’s Commuter x Jacquard by Google Trucker Jacket is a thorough collaboration between the two companies – Levi’s handles the design (their classic Trucker Jacket in a new form) and sturdy denim construction, while Google provides embedded gadgets that let you answer phone calls, get notifications, and change tracks by swiping various points of the jacket.
