Leather Jackets

In terms of hardwearing outerwear, it doesn't get more classic or badass than a good leather jacket. Google any male style icon and you're all but guaranteed to find a photo of him in a leather jacket sometime. Perhaps because they're so durable. Or simply because they make anyone look cool. Wear them with a basic sweater, a simple T-shirt or even over a shirt and tie with some tweed trousers. They're a smart buy, but they'll cost you—this is not the place to skimp as cheap leather looks, well, cheap. The real question is standard leather or suede? Whether you're a racer man or lean more towards an old school bomber style, the choice is entirely up to you.
