Finding the perfect leather jacket

4 Sep

So here it goes, when it comes to leather jackets YOU MUST READ very carefully to the importance of fit, style and what and when to wear a leather jacket. I’m not going to go through all the awful leather jacket choices that people mistakenly make. But what I will tell you is how important the right jacket is, you don’t want to look like this guy!

 Leather jackets come in all different lengths, fits and colours. If you’re looking for a basic everyday casual jacket, I recommend sticking with black or dark brown. Look for a basic cut not really going with the seasons trend, keeping in mind you will have this jacket forever, so as little detail as possible ( meaning 3 pockets or less).  Choose a short to medium length based on your height and preference. 

 

remember that you don’t want it to be skin-tight because you might wear a thick wool sweater or have multiple layers on. Make sure the leather is not to shiny and is good quality leather (synthetic) Choosing the right type of leather is also based on preference; soft hand like lamb skin, calfskin, cowhide, buckskin.

One question I would like to clear with all you men out there. NEVER wear a short leather jacket with a business suit. It just doesn’t go together.  The most appropriate length must be longer than your belt line but not down to your ankles.
