We are often asked by men how to wear a leather jacket. Many of our male customers always seek advice on what to wear with them and where to wear them to.
Leather jackets have always been a powerful piece of clothing to have in your wardrobe. Although they have not always looked like they have today. They have undergone a transition through history from going hand in hand with rockers and big lapels to motorbike riding bad boys. The good news is, to pull off a leather jacket you don’t have to fork out thousands of pounds on a Harley Davidson.
Nowadays you can wear a leather jacket to pull off many different looks whether you are going for that smart look or just keeping it casual.
This guide covers how men can wear leather jackets, what to wear them with and how to wear them effortlessly.
The Leather Bomber Jacket
This jacket was always destined for greatness. The bomber jacket style originates from the use of pilots who wore them as they hopped in and out of fighter planes, so it’s no surprise that it’s a classic.
This jacket is a key addition to any man looking that wants a jacket that is understated casual, bordering smart casual. Depending on the occasion, you can pair it with a polo shirt or roll-neck jumper – it looks great with either way. Black or dark wash denim jeans are a must and complete the look with your favourite trainers or desert boots.
A leather bomber jacket is such a versatile piece that all men should have in their wardrobe. It can be worn to practically any occasion and dressed up or down. Invest in one of these and you will be set for life.
The Leather Coat
If the casual convenience of a leather bomber jacket is a bit too casual for you, we would recommend going for a leather coat. Leather coats are great for men that want to look smarter and more put-together on a daily basis, as they’re so convenient to throw over your usual smart-casual outfit. A longer leather coat also provides extra warmth, making it great for autumn and winter.
A belted leather jacket, like our Trent Men’s Leather Coat, is great for men that want to make sure that their outerwear fits their body well and doesn’t look too oversized.
Pair this with your favourite jumper, a pair of slim-fit chinos or corduroy trousers and your usual chukka boots or brogues for a look that is perfect for work or a meal with the in-laws.
The Leather Biker Jacket
Classic leather biker jackets are great for men looking to add effortless flair to their wardrobe, but this doesn’t mean that you have to dress like a rock tribute band every day. A vintage rock band t-shirt, black jeans and a leather biker jacket is a match made in heaven – but do not feel restricted by this one style.
Biker jackets like our cult classic Budd Men’s Antique Leather Jacket can be dressed up to smart-casual by pairing them with a checkered or flannel button-up shirt and your jeans. When it comes to shoes, leather biker jackets look best with trainers or boots such as Dr Martens.
Burgundy Leather Jacket
Another great way to style your outfit with a leather jacket is to add a pop of colour. Some people may find it daunting to incorporate colour into their outfits, which is why we recommend burgundy leather jackets! The warm, subtle shade doesn’t stand out too much like other bright colours, but adds a contemporary element to your outfit that is more unique than regular shades of brown, tan or black.
Our personal favourite is The Budd Men’s Leather Jacket in burgundy. This unique shade has very slight red undertones which bring a whole new level of style to your outfit. This rustic jacket is a great choice if you’re looking to stand out this season.
A burgundy leather jacket is a staple piece that can be worn with many different outfits for a variety of occasions.
