Weekend Style – The Anatomy of a Leather Biker Jacket
One of my most cherished pieces is a leather biker jacket scored in a sale at Cole Haan while visiting Seattle. What I like about the biker jacket is its relentless relevance. I highly recommend sticking to the traditional no frills option as features like lacing (currently seen on a True Religion style) or over usage of large pockets will eventually date. Likewise color is key. I know it sounds obvious but go for black – or brown at a push – which will just get better with age. If money is no object I would consider a Belstaff who are synonymous with beautifully cut Italian leathers and style relevance, otherwise check out some fabulous options currently available on the high street.
Note: These 4 fab options all offer clean lines and traditional asymmetrical zipper. I would steer clear of large pockets or shearling collars which just add bulk.
