Since its emergence in the mid-twentieth century, the leather jacket has been immortalized by everyone from Marlon Brando in The Wild One to Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Terminator and Keanu Reaves in The Matrix.
Every leather jacket tells its own story, but whatever style you go for, it will be iconic in its own way. Whether you go for a biker jacket or a bomber jacket, you know you’re getting a timeless piece of clothing, worthy of a place in any man's wardrobe.
AllSaints has an excellent range of leather jackets. You just need to choose the look you want...
Military styling is everywhere at the moment, and leather jackets are no exception. AllSaints’ ‘Rein’ leather jacket takes the battlefield aesthetic and reimagines it for the high street. Fully-lined with military details, internal waist draw-cord, throat strap and sprayed and chipped metalwork straight from the front line, this jacket is made using a two tone lamb skin that has been heavily washed, crushed and hand-burnished. Military-style leather jackets look ridiculously good worn over layered tops and trousers tucked into gnarled leather boots. Accessorize with a cotton scarf and plenty of attitude.
Since Irving Schott designed the ‘Perfecto’ in 1928, leather biker jackets have come to embody a kind of counter-cultural swagger that fashionistas can’t get enough of. AllSaints’ ‘Recluse’ is a slim-fitting leather biker jacket with asymmetric front zip and contrast flannel body-lining, garment-dyed with heavily burnished edges and seams, and a crush finish. This is hard to beat if you want a jacket that sets you apart from the crowd.
We all know good leather jackets improve with age, but if you don’t want to wait years for that worn look, don’t worry. AllSaints have got the distressed, weathered look just right. The ‘Caledonian’ leather jacket with its asymmetric front zip and funnel collar, garment- washed with a crush finish, is seasoned yet edgy all at once. Combine it with worn leather boots and a vintage T-shirt to do it justice. And remember, worn leather also looks great over knitwear.
