BY BJTC Staff

When it comes to choosing what leather jacket style is best for you, the options can be overwhelming. There are so many different styles to choose from, such as leather moto, trucker, and flight jackets. What type complements your natural personality? There are countless ways to choose between leather jacket styles, but one of our favorites is finding the jacket that best reflects your go-to mindset. We’ve got three of the most popular leather jacket types we recommend based on three major men’s personality aesthetics: the refined, the rugged, & the rebel.

Leather Jacket Styles Based on Your Personality

The Refined Gentleman

Men's Fine Leather Moto jacket

A a leather moto jacket (also called a racer jacket or a café racer), is a sleek jacket with selective details and few embellishments. A snap-over band collar, straightforward zip front, and slim fit offer a polished look.

The Rugged Outdoorsman

Vintage Leather Flight jacket

The trademark features of leather trucker jackets speak directly to the rugged man’s sense of style. The waist-length cut, button-flap chest pockets, button front closure, and heavy, rugged seam work bring to mind your favorite old denim jacket -- but in premium leather, this jacket ups the ante on warmth, comfort, and style.

The Rebel

Vintage Leather Jacket for men

The oldest and arguably most iconic men’s leather jacket style is the flight jacket (also called an aviator jacket or bomber jacket). Whether heading down the road or the runway, this style is for those who are a bold adventurer at their core. Historically, this type of jacket might include shoulder epaulets and a sherpa collar. However, in a modern take on the vintage style, with a stand up collar, zippered cuffs, and zip closure, this jacket still upholds its iconic heritage.

What to Wear with Your Leather Jacket

So you have your leather jacket, now what do you wear with it? For any time you need a more polished look, pair a sleek moto jacket with trousers, a button-up shirt, and a tie. You can’t go wrong with styling a trucker jacket with our favorite flannel, jeans, and boots for an easy go-to outfit when hitting happy hour with some buddies. With a flight jacket, it’s hard not to keep it simple with a t-shirt, work pants, and boots. You can easily dress all of these types of leather jackets up or down based on your style and preference.

So, what does your personality say about your leather jacket style? Or rather, what does your leather jacket style reveal about you? No matter which way you’re leaning, shop all of the best men’s leather jackets and other apparel to go along with them in our premium apparel collection.
