The 25 Best Men’s Leather Jackets of 2022

Published By

What’s the epitome of casual, rugged and refined cool? Easily wearable no matter who you are or what you have planned? The classic leather jacket. From Brando and Dean to Beckham, leather jackets in their various iterations are the widely accepted finishing touch for everything from a crisp white pocket tee to a grey henley to a chambray dress shirt and tie.

There’s a style out there for everyone, from rough-and-tumble moto jackets to bomber jackets to leather military jackets that add flair, form and function to your favorite style staples. And there’s perhaps no better time to break out a great leather jacket than early fall — it ditches the weight of your heavy winter parka but it can stand up to a bit of a chill as you crunch leaves underfoot. In the right fit — ideally slim and sharp — it can work in place of a blazer just as seamlessly as it can at a weekend rock concert.
