Leather Jackets to ramp up your look.

 

What’s the one quintessential wardrobe item that never goes out of fashion? No, not denim slacks or chaps. Not your canvas shoes either. We’re talking about leather jackets. Exquisite, well-made jackets made from handcrafted full-grain leather that last a lifetime and shield you from the elements while also making sure you look darn good. There’s also nothing quite like a great leather jacket to tie together every winter outfit nicely. –


WHY ARE LEATHER JACKETS A MUST ON CHILLY AUTUMN AND WINTER EVENINGS

Apart from the fact that it shields you from harsh winds and keeps you warm, there’s really nothing else you can wear that’s functional, stylish, durable and capable of being paired with virtually every outfit you throw together.

Besides, it significantly elevates your look, no matter what you’re wearing.


THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND WHERN PURCHASING A LEATHER JACKET

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.
