Bridge & Burn: How to Choose the Best Leather Jacket For Men
Men really love leather jacket, but it’s not just any other leather jacket. It may look sharp the very first day you wear it, but if you purchase a good quality leather jacket, it makes a good investment that can last for years, and your body becomes more adapted into it the more you wear it. Consider a high-quality jacket as a one of your biggest wardrobe investments. There is something in a leather jacket that money can’t but because it is an extension of your style, personality and character. When it comes to the type of leather jacket available, the classic biker jacket, and the motocross or cafe racer jacket are two of the most favorite.
A good leather jacket should feel and look like your second skin, so it needs to fit your body frame, providing a room for a sweater underneath. The best leather jackets have sufficient room for you to freely move your arms, without seeing loose-hanging leather bits on the armpit and shoulder areas. A leather jacket that has a good fit should maintain the sleeves no longer than the wrists, and the rest of the leather jacket should sit at the height of your waist. You can go for a more adventurous look with cropped and elongated fits, if you already have a classic waist-level leather jacket in your wardrobe. For men with a skinny frame, an elastic or belted waist band works best because it serves as an accent to the shoulders, suggesting a broader torso. Men with bulkier body frame should avoid wearing leather jackets that stretch around body contours, and those that even make you rounder.
Your comfort is dictated greatly by the skin you choose for your leather jacket, and so as with its durability and performance. There are different animal sources of leather including cows (bovine or steerhide leather), goatskin (durable and supple), calfskin (pliable and durable), pig skin, horse, and buffalo. It is important to take into consideration the grain and tanning. When it comes to a full-grain leather, it uses the animal’s entire hide, exposing the skin marks, grain patterns, and scars. A top-grain leather is more flexible and thinner as compared to full-grain, that are often stained and waterproofed.
Tanning and finishing are important processes using either chrome or vegetable tanning. With the use of chromium sulphate, chrome tanning can produce a uniform and soft colored leather with waterproof properties.
