It’s clean and sleek, it’s the moto leather jacket. No need to complicate this minimal jacket style, we like to pair a moto jacket with a simple t-shirt and worn pair of jeans. Anymore than that, and it’s just too much. Finish the look with a leather belt and boots in a matching color (no contrasting colors). Here’s a look at one of our favorite moto jackets in whiskey tan.
It’s bold and reckless, a little like you. The bomber leather jacket looks great on the hanger and even better on your bike. Whether wearing it for a little joy ride around town or to the local tavern, always pair a dark colored bomber jacket with a simple white tee and black pants. You’ll look sharp without seeming like you’re trying too hard. Finish off the look with a black belt and pair of boots.
It’s rough and sturdy, a leather field jacket can handle anything the day throws at it. From working on the farm to hunting on the weekends, this jacket is warm and has lots of pockets to hold everything you’ll need. Wear this staple with a warm flannel shirt, thick jeans, gloves, and hunting boots. It’s certain to be your trusty companion no matter where you take it.
It’s worn-in and comfortable, it has seen a few things in its lifetime. A vintage leather jacket is reminiscent of times past while ready to make new memories. Wear it with your go-to t-shirt with your favorite band’s logo and a durable pair of khaki pants. This look is just right for drinks with friends, travel, and weekend activities.
