Leather jackets definitely conjure up an image of James Dean. They have a history of being worn by rebels and bikers and other miscreants. These days, leather jackets are definitely more mainstream. It seems like everyone from high school kids to college professors is wearing them. Here is a guide to the Fashionable Entrepreneur’s favorite leather jackets.
Tips on Buying Leather Jackets
Leather Jackets are usually one of the more expensive items to purchase. Most decent quality leather jackets start at $100 and go up from there. It’s important to focus on the quality of the leather and look for a style that you really like to wear and that you can see yourself wearing for a while. Look at the type of leather. Cow leather is more durable and rigid than calf or goat leather. Make sure all the zippers and snaps or buttons work well too. Think about your lifestyle too. A leather peacoat or trenchcoat can be worn in most office environments where a motorcycle jacket might be inappropriate.
