Oxblood Leather Jacket

A leather jacket is not only a fall essential, it’s a wardrobe essential. As far as outerwear goes, there is no better piece to project casual, laid back cool or straight up badass than a great fitting leather jacket. Choosing the right one depends as much on your personal style as your personality. Luckily, there are no shortage of great options. Here’s a look featuring my favorite oxblood leather biker jacket.

If you are planning to add a leather jacket to your collection, you have two basic options for acquiring one. First, you can buy new. If you plan on treating the leather jacket as an investment piece, be prepared to lay out some cash for the good stuff. This is definitely something I would advocate for since quality leather will last decades while a cheaper alternative will most certainly have a much shorter lifespan. You can also choose to go the second-hand/vintage avenue.

Both options have merits and drawbacks, and it’s up to you to decide which is the right fit for you and your budget. I have personally gone both routes, and have to say that, like most things, you get what you pay for. Given the choice between a fast acquisition or delaying a little while to save for quality, I will always choose the latter.

When you’re trying on new leather jackets, look for one that fits snugly around the shoulders and torso when zipped. In the case of a biker jacket, the sleeves should also fit rather snug at first. Leather stretches and a jacket that is a bit tight initially will eventually break in and form to your body. There’s nothing like the feel and comfort of broken in leather. Readers who have invested in a pair of quality leather shoes know exactly what I’m talking about.

    Hi brian i have just received the same jacket from all saints. However, I’m having difficulty with zipping the jacket up. Did your jacket give you the same problem at first or shall I return mine?

    Love the jacket and your overall look. However, what would that oxblood colour go with? Could you pair it with black pants? Thanks, love the blog.

    Hey Brian,

    I purchased a similar jacket to this (new) last week (All Saints) and I was wondering if you had any tailoring done to your leather garments? Cause the jacket I bought fits in the shoulder and chest pretty well (I seem to be in between sizes, but I sized up rather than down), but below the chest, it looks kinda baggy? Which is strange for a slim-fit jacket, I think. I’m thinking about taking it to a leather specialist to take it in, but everything I’ve read online, people say it kinda needs to be snug in the first place to be worthwhile. Thoughts?
