Choosing the perfect leather jacket can be a tough challenge – you want it to look great, right? This presentation will help you find how to choose leather jackets.
A leather jacket isn’t so much an item of clothing as an extension of your character. More so than any other garment you own, your choice says something about you – so don’t go writing checks your personality can’t cash.
Taking the time to select the right skin for your jacket is a decision you will thank yourself for every time you put it on. This crucial choice will dictate everything from looks to comfort, to performance and long-lasting durability, so it’s not something you should take lightly.
Without a good fit, all that money you poured into good quality leather and a stylish cut is like sticking chrome rims on your grandma’s Volvo. A good jacket should look and feel as effortless as a second skin, so you need a fit that suits your frame.
Unless you’re stacking serious pocket change, buying a leather jacket is likely to be a major long-term investment, so you’ll want it to last. While it is technically possible to replace things like zips, buttons and buckles if they wear out, doing so is neither cheap nor easy, so save yourself the headache and make sure the hardware is up to scratch before you hand over any green.
