The best leather jackets can be found in many places. They are the ultimate jacket for looking super cool when you need to take your outfit from zero to 100. No matter what the trend climate may dictate, but the right one will also get better with age.
Remember that the best leather jackets get softer, but they retain their shape. (Although, leather does stretch a little after the first few wears, so buy a snug size if you want a close fit.) Naturally, finding The One is hard—it’s a commitment. We’ve edited the current options with a ferocious, hard-to-please eye, bringing you the greatest leather jackets you can buy right now, which makes for fortuitous timing, seeing as they were a big deal on the F/W 22 runways.
Today’s leather jackets are so much more than a line-up of faux black bikers. (But should a classic moto still make your heart skip a beat, that’s entirely acceptable.) Whether utilitarian and rendered in an unusual color or double-breasted, tailored and a million miles away from a Harley Davidson, there are options aplenty. Scroll down to shop the fashion world’s best leather jackets now.
