Different kinds of men’s jackets such as the classic biker, bomber, café racer, and utility leather jackets have really come a long way since the past five to seven decades. It is amazing to see just how this symbol of rock and roll rebellion has now transformed into an important piece of outerwear for men. Yes, the leather jacket plays an instrumental role in helping men exude their innermost fashionista.

Moreover, nobody can deny the versatility of a leather jacket. You could easily complement it with casual, semi-formal, and formal wear, albeit you need to pick and choose the right styles. Going back to the '50s, the leather jacket was instantly made famous by the legendary Godfather and Apocalypse now actor Marlon Brando.

James Dean also heavily contributed to promoting the leather jacket-wearing and motorbike-riding bad boy image. Fortunately, today, you don't need to be an icon to pull off a badass look. However, you would surely be mistaken if you think that the rebellious and badass attitude a leather jacket exudes has dissipated.

Highly fashionable jackets today boast the same amount of attitude and versatility, especially if you just wear them over a nice pair of denim and Chelsea boots. The leather jacket will always remain a critical and iconic part of the men's wardrobe until the end of time.

Top leather jackets all men should have

The most important thing you should consider is the fact that not every leather jacket designed is equal in style, form, and functionality. There are different kinds of men's leather jackets that, depending on your wardrobe, can suit you better or not at all. In light of this, mentioned below are some common yet essential leather jackets that you are going to come across. If you don’t like any jacket from this list, you can always get a custom leather jacket designed to fit your needs perfectly.

          Flight jackets or winter leather jackets look a bit similar to bomber jackets; the one added styling bonus you get with a flight jacket is its shearling collar, as you can see in the image. The whole concept behind the shearling collar was to provide WW2 fighter pilots with an extra layer of warmth, hence the name flight jackets.

          However, you do have to realize that the shearling collar on flight jackets make the product a winter jacket, it is not a casual jacket like the other products mentioned earlier. It is perfect for people who already know how to carry the style and look of a leather jacket. That is also because these jackets are a bit bulkier than usual, so if you are looking for a lighter, more versatile jacket, then opt for a bomber jacket.

          The main features of this product include:

          • It has a belted collar
          • The pockets on the chest are tilted
          • Beautiful fur collar
          • Button enclosures at the waist

          Black Fur Leather Jacket For Men

          This is another good example of a simple yet classic flight jacket with a shearling collar. If you don't mind the weight and fur design, you can easily couple it with a nice pair of khakis or jeans along with a white tee and a pair of Chelsea boots. The prime features of this jacket include:

          • White fur collar
          • The fur on the sleeves and waist
          • Warm bomber pockets on each side
          • Inner pockets to keep your smartphone and wallet

          Bottom line

          To sum it all up, you have to admit that there is just something sublime and really appealing about different kinds of men's jackets that simply exude confidence, style, and above all, dominance. So go for them and enjoy the grace and comfort they add to your outings.
