Shop the Best Leather Jackets, Because They're Perfect for Layering Now

The best leather jackets can be found in many places. They are the ultimate jacket for looking super cool when you need to take your outfit from 0 to 100. Not only does such a key piece journey with you, looking good no matter what the trend climate may dictate, but the right one will also get better with age.

Remember that the best leather jackets get softer—they retain their shape (although leather does stretch a little after the first few wears, so buy a snug size if you want a close fit). Naturally, finding The One is hard—it's a commitment. We've edited the current collection with a ferocious, hard-to-please eye, bringing you the greatest leather jackets you can buy right now.

Today's leather jackets are so much more than a lineup of black bikers (however, should a classic moto still make your heart skip a beat, that's entirely acceptable). Whether studded and rendered in an unusual colour, or sleek, tailored and a million miles away from a Harley-Davidson, there are options aplenty. We're partial to a more retro style with leather-covered buttons and a natty little collar—they look great with jeans and provide a far smarter option on any given workday. And don't forget they're a great layering tool for winter—just add a roll neck underneath and a coat over the top.
