Levi's Type III Trucker jacket has been around for 50 years this month and Levi's has launched the Tailor Shop in Braamfontein, Johannesburg, to mark the occasion.

All customisations done to Levi's jackets will be free and visitors to the Tailor Shop can choose from a menu of techniques - paint flick, dip and dye, patches, cuts, distressing, spray on stencils, fabric pens and accessories.

You can buy your Levi's jacket for R599 or bring in an old one. Local artists will be on hand to update your jacket.
