Learn About Leather Jackets
A classic American garment, leather jackets have been popular with stylish men and women of all walks of life for decades.
Mens leather jackets come in a variety of styles, lengths, and colors. Blazers, car coats, bombers, and racing jackets are just a few of the many styles. Bomber jackets and leather motorcycle jackets are typically shorter jackets while blazers and car coats generally hit lower, either around the hip or mid-thigh.
Black leather jacketsare the most common color but brown and tan jackets are also popular. Racing style leather jackets are often available in many colors such as red and blue and some motorcycle jackets feature bight images and designs.
Varsity leather jackets feature designs that combine top-grain leather sleeves and a washable wool body.
Leather jackets for women feature many of the same designs as mens leather jackets but with slimmer fits and a wider range of colors. Brown and blue are common, as are several shades of red and burgundy. Lightweight leather jackets in bright yellow, pink, or turquoise colors are ideal for wear in spring.
Suede leather jackets, with their sophisticated look and luxuriously soft feel, are also popular among women.
Once favored for their strong, rebellious image, today leather jackets are worn by anyone who wants a great looking coat that is also durable and always in style.
