As I’ve said many times before, once you’ve made the choice to get into menswear, it can be very easy to get lost down a rabbit hole of details and affectations. And while there’s always a time and place for a well-appointed detail or accessory, it’s important to remember that the simplest looks can often be the most stylish. The key to simple style is to have great-fitting, classic, and timeless pieces. Case in point: a black leather bomber jacket.
A black leather bomber is masculine, edgy, and the epitome of classic cool. For the perfect fit, it should hug your shoulders, be snug (but not tight) around your torso, and hit right at your waistline. From a style standpoint, keep your leather bomber simple. Avoid excessive and/or needless zippers, snaps, tassels, or pockets. Pair it with a v-neck t-shirt and some worn in selvedge denim for some simple, classic badass style.
If you’ve ever been in the market for a leather jacket, you know that they can be expensive. And if you have the cash, you should buy whatever makes you happy. For those on a tighter budget, it is possible to find quality without having to break the bank. I’ve personally been beyond thrilled with this jacket from the Topman collection at Nordstrom.
