      imo the biggest offender is buying new, any new leather jacket regardless of brand is going to look weird. Either the leather looks like it has a layer of air under it that’s about to pop through the stitching, or its some modern fast fashion cafe/womens looking trash like or

      Andrew Tate wears them pretty often. Now, even if you don’t like him, you have to admit that nobody thinks of fedoras when they look at him.
      >masculine face (bald with beard)
      >bad boy persona
      >rich persona
      >muscular

      , or its just a reproduction of a A2 or a double rider where the sleeves are too tight and shoulders are nonexistent. You 100% have to buy vintage, because none of these brands know what they’re doing and the only way to replicate that organic look is to just buy the same jackets they wore back then

    It needs to be made in America or Japan.
    Dark brown or black color.
    Simple folded collar or bomber jacket.
    Try a few on at a store before you buy one. I couldn’t be happier with my Schott 555 and I’m so glad I tried on some edgy one’s beforehand and realized how far away I am from pulling them off.

      Yeah because everyone with a brain thinks of something worse: gay eurotrash. Seriously that leather jacket looks like a $100 "leather" jacket mutts pick up from Express.

      Really? That’s 100% what I think of when I think of Tator Tots. Maybe not Tate himself, but his entire following is made up of neckbeards and neckbeard adjacents

    For heavyweight jackets :They pair well with jeans, heavy weight chinos, moleskin trousers, and Baker pants/OG 107s/fatigues. Shoe wise you need boots, chunky sneakers, tyrolean shoes like Paraboot Michaels or something with weight and a vibram, lug or Danite sole.
    For tops go with a heavy oxford, denim work shirt or chambray, flannel, or a corduroy work shirt.

    Basically if it’s a traditional leather jacket you need the rest of the pieces to have weight and hopefully decent texture. Don’t wear slim or skinny trousers with say a shearling bomber, you’ll look unbalanced.

    I’m not a fan of thinner leather jackets but if you’re going for a slimmer rock star/euro trash fit, slim everything else down accordingly. Chelsea boots, slimmer trousers, lighter shirt.

    Just avoid the gaudy crap with the dozens of non-functional spikes, zippers at odd angles, buttons and other crap and you will be fine.
    I like wearing a dark brown leather jacket with leather shoes and heavier fabrics, like corduroy pants and flannels or a wool sweater, looks awesome. The point is, less is more, a leather jacket is flamboyant as it is.

    for a man clothing is functional first and stylish a very close second. if you ride a motorcycle (over 700cc), are a cowboy (as a real job), or have some sort of violent job (leo, military, bouncer) you are way more likely to pull it off than poindexter the lawyer assuming your not a fat shitter

    I own and wear this grandpa looking jacket from the 1980s that my great grandfather (never met him) purchased for himself shortly before he died
    my grandmother, his daughter, gave it to me sometime last year
    it doesn’t suit me or my style at all and it looks weird on somebody who’s under the age of 65 but idgaf I rock that shit

    Leather jackets are effortlessly /fashion/, just never buy a black one unless you want to look like a Balkan drug dealer.

      if you have a handsome eurasian face, you won’t look like a balkan drug dealer, if you are cursed with the arab/turkish/iranian phenotype definitely don’t wear a black leather jacket.

    Leather jackets have gotten to the point where they are being paid homage. I recently saw a bomber mockup made of some kind of wool/polyester knit. I believe it was Nordstroms.

    >How do you rock a leather jacket without looking gay or cringe fedora?
    fit:
    not too slim, go for the relexed look
    color:
    black can work, but is harder to pull off, brown suede is easier
    pairing:
    definitely not with a skinny jeans, always go for sraight fit, colorwise choose grey, dark blue or medium blue, anything lighter is harder to pull off
    shoes: boots work, but would be considered overdressed nowadays and both leather jacket and boots would make it twice as hard to pull it off, so go for classic sneaker, for instance sth. that looks like the Adidas Top Ten High/RB
    shirt:
    plain T-shirt or plain collar shirt, nothing fancy and if you want patterns than go for sth subtle and traditional, for instance paisley that isn’t too ghrelish.
    and definitely no:
    – sweatpants
    – modern pixie-sneakers like those kanye west macDonalds shoes
