Get it Right – Leather Jackets

Sometimes, it’s as simple as put it on. Look in the mirror. And see what expression your face decides to make. However, when choosing the right leather jacket for you, things like how snug the shoulders are and making sure the length of the jacket reaches your hip bones matter!

A good leather jacket can last for ages, so it makes sense to choose one that you will want to keep for several years. Here are some top tips to help you make the right choice:

Black is the go-to colour for most leather jackets. Everybody feels better in safe, slimming black. However, brown jackets portray a more casual, vintage style and look good worn with jeans so take this into account when deciding what occasion you require your jacket for. Black can be worn with business clothing and lend a rugged look to casual trousers or jeans. If you’re not sure which colour to choose, then make your decision based on the majority of the contents of your wardrobe.

The leather jacket should be the statement of your look you don’t want to overdo it. Keep it simple with just a T-shirt or shirt to compliment the colour of your jacket. As for bottoms, you can either settle for jeans or chinos; stick to a slim or skinny fit in either black, grey, indigo or beige. When it comes to the footwear, a pair of rugged leather boots, some black leather lace-ups or a classic white trainer will all do the job well.

This is a tricky one, leather should fit your body perfectly. Bear in mind that the jacket will stretch in some cases, depending on the leather, we would recommend going down a size to get the perfect fit after wearing it for a couple of days. Fit is ultimately a personal decision, some people prefer having it tight and fitted, whereas others might prefer a looser fit. Just make sure that you’re comfortable in it.

So, when you find the perfect one, you’ll know and it won’t be long before you’re walking around harder, stronger and generally like you run things around here!
