Leather Jackets: Splurge Vs. Steal

When Fall rolls around, I instantly start to pull out the leather (and faux leather) jackets in my closet. A proper fitting leather jacket will prove to be one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe from these early Fall days, until the beginning of Spring. A great leather jacket used to a lot of saving or whipping out the credit card, but with the countless fast fashion brands stepping up the trend game, a killer leather jacket (not real leather obviously) can be yours for under $100. I’ve rounded up some of the best ones for under $100 (The one I am wearing above is this one from Forever21Men) as well as some splurge worthy jackets if you’re looking for real leather or to make an investment. The rest of this outfit is below, btw! x – Preston

Leather Weather has arrived and it doesn’t mean you have to spend a million bucks to get the perfect moto look. Every year the vegan leather (or engineered leather) options get better and better while staying easy on the wallet. We tend to keep our money right where we can see it, in our shoe closet. For this look, Preston opted to spend on the Saint Laurent Heidi boot and pair it back to a faux leather jacket and great neutral sweatshirt. (We wont lie though, we have a few quality leather jackets in the closet but they don’t all have to come with a high price tag).

We’ll admit it…we have way too many leather (and faux) leather jackets. Our favorite right now? A brown leather jacket. This Fall must have is Autumnal perfection paired with shades of grey and tan, paired back to your favorite pair of mid to dark wash jeans. We also love a hint of western mixed into the look by adding a sick turqoise inlay belt into the mix.

Although it may be officially fall, that doesn’t mean its time to ease up on your fitness routine. In fact, consider this your season to upgrade your gym commute look…think hollywood bad-ass. Our trick? Think of three easy steps.

1) SWAP OUT THE SWEATS:  Throw a quilted pair of joggers over your workout shorts for a slimmer, more current athletic look.

2) HELLO MOTO:  Add a sick leather jacket to your grey tee or athletic shirt to knock it out of the park.

3) UP THE DUFFEL: A quality duffel is a sound investment and will take you from your workout, to the airport, to a weekend out of the city. (we have a lower and higher priced version below in the shop the post feature)

September 1st very well might be our most favorite day in New York City. It is a beacon of hope; a sign of days to come. Days free of sweaty backs & subway cars, days free of the oh-so-pungeant smell of garbage on the sidewalks, and finally…days made just for leather. As mornings and evenings are already starting to cool down a bit, were layering one of our lighter moto jackets over long length tees to get the overall look without compromising our sanity and body temp (save the heavy layering for temps in the 50s/60s). We’ve rounded up some of our favorite leather and faux leather jackets for you here, and most of them are under $200. You’re welcome.
