Be prepared to spend – A good leather jacket doesn’t come cheap and the reason for this is that high-quality leather is hard to come by and expensive when it does. It is also finished by skilled craftsmen using state-of-the-art processes which command a premium. Cheaper jackets/knockoffs are a dime a dozen and won’t last long or serve their purpose.
Buy the classic styles – Be it Bombers, Bikers, or Truckers, these are signature styles that have weathered the test of time and you can never go wrong with men’s classic leather jackets.
Make sure it’s made right – Choose a handcrafted jacket over a mass-produced one, because the former is made with great attention to detail and is individually checked and put together by hand. Mass-produced jackets are machine made and put together in a hurry and are hence more vulnerable to wear and tear.
Quality and durability – A leather jacket should be something that lasts you longer than other items of clothing because a good one is usually priced a little higher. You want to pick something that is good quality and can withstand the elements as well as the test of time.
