How To Wear A Leather Jacket

Clothing, no matter what item, should fit. I can't express this point enough. When it comes to leather jackets, or any jacket for that matter, the general rule is the shoulder seam should hit at the end of your shoulder. Leather should be snug but not too tight. It should be fitted through the shoulders with narrow arms. Also keep in mind the length you're going for. Bomber jackets are very popular right now and they should sit parallel with the waist line. If you're going for mid length, then it should stop right below the hip. Never and I repeat never invest in an leather blazer, a leather jacket with extreme detail and/or stitching, or one that looks like you borrowed it from the 70's.

Fashion Shows:

Neil Barrett Fall 2009 Collection
This fall try incorporating style & comfort. This look is ideal pairing cable-stitched textured leather with cropped pants. Tip: instead of the leather jacket try pairing a simple white button-down shirt with a black tie or bowtie. Either way, as the temperature continues to drop, this look can easily go from day to night.
