Now in its fifth season, the Levi’s® Commuter Series – designed for and by cyclists – launches for Fall 13 with a range of innovative fabric blends that provide urban cyclists with advanced breathability and insulation capabilities.
Since its launch back in 2011, Levi’s innovative commuter series has provided inner-city cyclists with a level of function and form that was unseen outside of the purist cycle community. Drawing on the brands iconic design silhouettes, the diffusion line offers bike-friendly separates that balance performance fabrics and multi-functional features.
For Fall 13, Levi’s focuses on the challenges cyclists face with fluctuating temperatures and weather conditions throughout the winter. New developments include a range of innovative fabrics that serve riders with advancements in breathability and insulation helping to counter shifts in weather and body temperature. Technical benefits include water and stain repellence, sweat and moisture wicking, and antimicrobial protection.
New additions to the collection include the 504 straight fit jean, featuring stretch-woven fabrics and 3M Scotchlite™ and Sanitized® details. Two new jackets styles are included in the line, a parka, and a hooded trucker, each with additional features like reflective tape, and angled pockets, all designed to enhance mobility, safety, and protection. Other pieces in the collection include raglan tees, slim fit trousers with a reinforced seat, long sleeve shirts with an extended tail for extra coverage.
Look for the collection at select retailers and via Levi’s online store in the coming months.
