Tips for buying a leather jacket

Shape is everything

If you want a fitted style, make sure you are looking at leather jackets that taper in at the waist. If you buy a boxy style, it will have a relaxed, over-sized fit.

Most brands run small

Leather is an expensive fabric so many brands cut corners and make jackets slightly small to save on fabric. So, generally you will need to buy one size up. If you're a size 6, buy a size 8. If you're a size 8, buy a size 10 etc. If you have any questions about the sizing of specific brands, contact us through the comment box below.

Invest in something timeless

If you're going to drop big bucks on your leather jacket, you want it to last a few years. To avoid your investment piece looking out of date after one season, try choose a very simple and classic style. The plainer, the better. If you buy something with tassels, you could regret it next year.

Make it more expensive with less hardware

What gives away a cheap leather jacket? The metal hardware. While it's easy to make cheaper fabrics look more expensive than they are, a cheap zip will always look cheap, and they're more prone to rust and discolouration.

If you're not keen to spend a fortune on your jacket but you still want it to look expensive, look for a style with minimal zips and buttons.


Still too expensive? Here's your solution.

If you love the look of leather jackets but just can't justify the price, try nabbing yourself a bargain by shopping one on eBay.

Compare prices from various sellers or cut the price tag in half by buying one second-hand.
