One of the most vital things for every man to have in his closet is one great leather jacket. Getting your first leather jacket is like a right of passage, something that every man has to do. Selecting this coveted jacket, however, is not always so easy. Am I more of a rugged guy? A motorcycle guy? Maybe more of a tailored guy? You have to know what type of jacket you are looking for when beginning your hunt for the ultimate leather jacket. When buying a piece of clothing that is so expensive, you really want to have all of your cards laid out right in front of you and be prepared, like when buying a car. Here’s where I come in. There are ten leather jackets that I think each guy should consider. One of these types will work for you, and none of them will land you a roll in a local stage production of Grease as the next Danny Zuko, so have no fear.

For the best leather jacket, look no further. We recommend the perfect mens leather jackets that are made of supple leather in rugged designs that keep you in style and warm, while not costing a fortune.

The Best You Can Get

  • Belstaff - Centaur Jacket

    Preston says: You can’t go wrong with a Belstaff. This "Ergonomic" version is made with Elastoseam® seams giving the three-quarter-length jacket enhanced comfort. The Centaur features pads on both the shoulders and elbows, and a Belstaff patch is sewn on the left bicep. Metal snaps on close the Centaurs pockets and stitching is seen throughout. The clean line of the silver buckle belt adds a refined touch to the Centaur jackets rugged details. The Centaur Jacket creates long lean lines, plus it comes in both the real and vegan leather. Classic and eco friendly never goes out of style.

  • Dolce and Gabbana Polished Lambskin Jacket

    Preston says: This brown D&G Dolce and Gabbana Polished Lambskin Jacket is casual with a classic cut. The rich color looks great on any skin tone and the long sleeve, banded cuffs give extra insulation. The convertible collar zip adds versatility to the look of the jacket, and the classic front flap pockets button closure adds an a younger touch to this cool jacket. This is an investment piece.

    • Convertible collar zip front
    • Front flap pockets with buttons
    • Long sleeves with banded cuffs
  • John Varvatos Biker Jacket

    Preston says: This biker jacket looks amazing when worn open with a hooded sweatshirt, while you can always close it up for a tucked and classic look. The John Varvatos biker also features dual pockets - vertical ones with zipper closure on each side of the ribcage, and flap pockets below with snaps that feature small engraved "J". As my mother always says, “God is in the detail.”

    • Washed leather
    • Espresso lambskin
    • Banded collar
    • Zip and snap-flap pockets
  • Gap Leather Bomber

    Preston says: The rich milk chocolate color of this Gap jacket is nothing short of appetizing; just like its price tag. The lack of pockets on the chest makes it perfect for layering, without adding too much bulk. Vertical snap front pockets give the bomber a sleek clean line, and the rib-knit cotton on the sleeves and at the waste add texture and excitement to the simple and classic Gap bomber.

    • Mock collar
    • Zip front, snaps at collar
    • Rib-knit cotton around ends of sleeves, bottom, and inside of collar
    • Snap-flap pockets in front
  • Barbour Burnished Flyer

    Preston says: The ultra soft burnished leather is in perfect balance with the masculine epaulettes and buckled collar on this Barbour flyer. The two-way front zip under a studded front gives the coat dimension and extra insulation. You can stash your blackberry up in an inner mobile phone pocket, leaving your hands plenty of room to stay warm inside entry hand warmer pockets.

You will be happy with any of these

  • Armani Exchange Classic Leather Jacket

    Preston says: The Armani exchange classic leather jacket is made of soft flexible leather. It has a zipper front closure with snap welt waist pockets. Small side entry pockets can be found on top of the welt waist ones, and the slightly oversized collar adds a bit of European style. This jacket is a steal at this price.

    • Banded waist and cuffs
    • Professional cleaning only
  • Marc By Marc Jacobs Leather Motorcycle Jacket

    Preston says: This is a James Dean jacket if I’ve ever seen one. This vintage-inspired motorcycle jacket is out of a movie with its asymmetrical zipper up the front and snaps on the chest. The two hip pockets are placed perfectly to stroll down the city street looking like a million bucks. The jacket is fully lined and is made of really amazing tumbled leather. Try to wear with something other than a white t-shirt, or else you may start getting calls to be in the revival of Grease on Broadway.

    • Epaulets on shoulders
    • Vintage inspired spread collar
  • Juicy Couture Hooded Lambskin Leather Jacket

    Preston says: This leather jacket from Juicy Couture Men’s is a great blend of utility and style. It is made of a really soft lambskin and has been through multiple washing processes to have a vintage look. Zippers on the chest pockets and front have a handcuff pull to make this jacket even a more edgy. The jacket is fully lined and has one pocket on the inside to hold your cell phone or wallet.

    • Hooded
    • Grey Lambskin
  • Hugo BOSS Black Cels Leather Blazer

    Preston says: This jacket from Hugo Boss is a really modern spin on the leather jacket, as they have made it into a form-fitting blazer. Just like your favorite sport coat, this leather blazer has three buttons, two inside pockets and a vent in the center of the back. This jacket from Boss is a great way to dress-up a leather piece for a special event or night on the town.

    • Fully lined
    • Italian lambskin
  • Wilson’s Leather Washed Wings Cycle Jacket

    Preston says: This black motorcycle jacket from Wilson’s Leather is a great value. The jacket is traditional in its styling but has modern stitching and detailing on the shoulders and sleeves. The coolest part is the wings that are embroidered into the back for that extra “umph.” The snap tab collar is classic to the style and the angled side pockets complete the look and give the jacket integrity. This should only be cleaned professionally.

    • 100% Lamb Leather Shell
    • 100% nylon inner lining
