Whether you are a beginner, a hardcore rider or an occasional biking enthusiast, you need a leather jacket that stays with you in all your bike rides like a soulmate. Leather jackets have evolved drastically over the time. From featuring a basic finish to stylish rivets and stitching detail, they have seen it all. Not only does it look good with every outfit in your wardrobe but also gets better year after year (only if you take good care of it). Here, I have narrowed down a list of 5 basic types of leather jackets that are both high on style and good on the pocket.
The Evergreen “Classic” Leather Jacket
The classic leather jacket usually has a slim fit, basic construction, cut for a motorcycle racer and a neat finish. This design features either a mock collar or a spread collar. Classic leather jackets give you a classic urban rider look and are a must-have. A good leather jacket is nothing less than an investment. So, before you make a purchase decision, make sure you are doing a thorough research of the market.
Treat you wardrobe with a classic leather jacket and stay prepared to win some serious style points while gilding your way through the hills on two wheels.
The Rock n Roll Version
If you prefer Johnny Ramone over James Bond, this style is surely what you need. The rocker version usually features quilted detail on the shoulder or the sleeves, zippered pockets or mock zips and big lapels. These are generally well perforated to offer great ventilation making them a great combination of style and comfort.
A Twist of Colour
Who says leather jackets can only be black? If you are a someone who loves experimenting, consider buying one in brown or some other classy colour. I am sure, you are gonna love this "some other colour" biker jacket of yours.
The Mixed Breed
This mix of leather and fabric for those don’t want to commit an all leather jacket. No matter how stylish they look, the zips and pockets can be easily accessed even while wearing tough riding gloves. That's the beauty of a fabric+leather jacket. In addition, these are lighter and easier to pack than other leather jackets. Ideal for crisp autumn evenings, this mixed breed would become your instant favourite.
The Easy on the Pocket Alternative
Faux leather jackets are stylish, have a great fit (not that other styles don't fit well), last decently well and are super easy on the pocket. These are super stylish, tough (well, almost) and a must-have. So, if you are on a budget, buy a faux leather jacket and get the biker look without the loans. Easy Peasy!
No matter which style you choose, to keep your jacket healthy for a long time, offer plenty of care and protection.
