Bridge & Burn: Men’s Ultimate Guide to Leather Jacket
Men are naturally leather jacket lovers, and when it comes to comfort and fashion, don’t just pick up whatever is available. 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. For men, a leather jacket is one of the major investments in your wardrobe. Finding your style for the best men’s jacket is an extension of your 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. Good-quality leather jackets include high-cut armholes, with sufficient room so you can move your arms freely without those unsightly loose-hanging leather at the shoulder and armpit 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. If you already have a classic waist-level leather jacket, you can go for a more adventurous look with cropped and elongated fits. 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. If you already have a bulky frame, avoid leather jacket stretching around your body contours, or those that can make you look rounder.
One important factor to consider when choosing a leather jacket is the type of skin, that dictates the comfort, 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 also very important to consider the grain and tanning when choosing a leather jacket. A full-grain leather jacket utilize the entire hide which includes the outer layer of the skin in its original state, displaying the marks, grain patterns, and scars. Top-grain are thinner and more flexible than full-grain, which are usually waterproofed and stained.
When it comes to tanning and finishing, it includes either chrome or vegetable tanning. With the use of chromium sulphate, chrome tanning can produce a uniform and soft colored leather with waterproof properties.
