65 Versatile Leather Jackets for Men – A Must Have Item for Every Guy
Leather jackets for men (and women) got their start in the early 1900’s when aviators and military men began wearing brown leather flight jackets, which would later become known as bomber jackets. These insulated jackets were designed to keep the pilots warm while they flew at high altitude.
Since then they have become a staple fashion item, often associated with sub-cultures such as punks, Goths, rockers, and motorcyclists, but an item that anyone can wear. They are warm and protective, making them a versatile and classy addition to any wardrobe. They are most often designed in black or brown, but with dying, they can be created in a wide range of colors. And there’s a style to flatter and suit every body type.
