Men’s leather jacket styles
Whether it's for safety or style, a leather jacket is an essential part of your wardrobe. There are distinct differences between a motorcycle and fashion leather jackets. Motorcycle jackets are built to keep you safe, so often feature thicker leathers, as well as added padding to protect key impact areas, like your elbows and shoulders. On the other hand, fashion leather jackets aren’t as sturdy, made from softer leathers for comfort, with extra fabrics, such as lambskin trims, added. They have a longer cut than their motorcycle counterpart too.
The leather bomber jacket
AKA, the Aviator. It’s the most iconic style around thanks to Tom Cruise from his legendary role in Top Gun. It’s a great choice if you want something that is casual yet rugged. Key features include an elasticised hem and cuffs, a waist length cut, full-front zipper and a collar that can stand on its own. While black is classic, there are plenty around in all variations of brown too.
Modelled on a traditional motorcycle jacket, the racer offers you a clean look, without an excessive amount of detail, but still buckets of style. It has a band-shaped collar, full front zip and between two to four pockets, making it a great option for many different occasions.
Leather ‘barn coat’
Originally used by American farmers, the barn coat is a loose-fitting leather jacket cut in a style similar to a blazer, but with buttons or a zip. Offering you a mix of casual style and a slightly tailored fit, it’s a very versatile option for your wardrobe.
Leather vests usually sit in the domain of the biker. While they don’t offer much in the way of protection or warmth, they are an interesting way to up your cool factor.
