The Levi’s Commuter Trucker Jacket with Jacquard by Google is now available. The jacket has been designed with urban cyclists in mind. Jacquard Threads woven into the sleeve create an interactive surface that responds to the wearer’s gestures. When paired with a smart phone, a brush or tap on the sleeve can let users interact with music, navigation prompts and phone calls while keeping their eyes on the road. Gestures can also be customized—choosing a tap, for example, to pause music or provide an ETA.
Details include four-way stretch, a lower back hem for added coverage, 3M reflectivity for visibility and secure zip pockets. Jacquard says its “vision centers around expanding the functionality of the clothes people already wear and love. And that’s exactly what we did with Levi’s in creating the Commuter Trucker Jacket with Jacquard by Google woven in.”
