While some men see a leather jacket as a wardrobe staple, many others are afraid to step beyond typical fashion parameters. It’s true, a leather jacket is bolder and more daring than a classic blouson jacket or a pea coat, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pull off the look.

Most guys who think they aren’t cool or stylish enough to work the leather look probably could if only they had more confidence.

It might sound clichéd, but confidence really is key when it comes to wearing a leather jacket well.

Choosing Your Style

It’s also important to think about what you’re going to style your leather jacket with. Because it’s a statement piece in its own right, try to avoid teaming it with loud, over-the-top patterns especially if you’re not extremely confident.

A simple t-shirt or button-down looks great underneath an open jacket, while dark jeans and trainers finish off the casual look perfectly.

As we were strolling through the Medici Palazzo, who was an Italian banking family. And a political dynasty that first began to gather prominence under Cosimo de’ Medici in the Republic of Florence during the first half of the 15th century.

I do wonder what leather jackets they would have opted for?

Leather Jacket Confidence

The way you’ll feel in your jacket entirely depends on its cut and fit. If you buy a poorly fitting jacket, you’re going to be uncomfortable and your body language will reflect this. Instead, invest in a quality jacket that suits you.

Leather jackets are always associated with rock stars. As I was touring through the photography museum reading all about lead singer from Nirvana, Kurt Cobain. He was the king of grunge fashion. Ironically rarely wore a leather jacket. Could the LAI Ferenze brand have been his preference for leather jackets, if he was alive today?
