The Best Leather Jackets for Men 2019

The Best Leather Jackets for Men 2019

Here’s a brief hypothetical that illustrates the raw power of the best leather jackets: Let’s say you’re going to a party. (I know: gross.) You aren’t even dressed yet, and your anxiety is already begging you to stay put, hoodie up, and introduce your old pal Thai food to your new boo Disney+. What are your options? You could gorge on a bunch of CBD on your way out the door—only, let’s be honest, that stuff is all a bit suspect. You could guzzle some good ol’ fashioned liquid courage the moment you arrive, but you also don’t want to write off the entire next day in bed mainlining Advil and Gatorade. So instead, you do the only reasonable thing left: you slip on an immaculate leather jacket, give yourself a couple of Fonz thumbs in the mirror (“AYY!”), and then proceed to charm the living daylights out of everyone you encounter for the rest of the evening.

That’s the power of the best leather jackets for men. They make you stand a little taller, speak with a little more conviction, and seem altogether more alluring. They are like the pill Bradley Cooper takes in the movie Limitless, only they unlock genuine cool instead of psychotic ambition. Of course, confidence of that magnitude doesn’t come cheap. But if you’re ready and raring to invest in one, we’ve pinpointed a baker’s dozen of the very best leather jackets worth your hard-earned dough. Whether you’re looking for an easy-wearing gateway or a galactic-level flex, all of these jackets will keep you feeling like your very best self for years and years to come.


The Best Leather Jacket For Causing a Genuine Stir

Givenchy belted leather jacket

Nobody wears a leather jacket if they’re trying to avoid attention, but you better be Prince-level comfortable in the spotlight if you’re going to don this Clare Waight Keller masterpiece. The wide lapels, the safari pockets, the belt, the hardware, that soul-soothingly perfect shade of oceanic blue? As the kids say: Sheesh.

The Best Old-School Leather Jacket

Schott lightweight cowhide flight jacket

Schott lightweight cowhide flight jacket

Schott is the NYC institution responsible for making The Ramones, James Dean, and legions of WWII pilots look cooler than cool in their beefy leather jackets. What’s nice about this one, though, is that it’s not one of Schott’s more quintessential models, which means you won’t feel like a living, breathing Google Image search for “male style icon” every time you put it on. It’s got all the basic ingredients of a classic flight jacket, but it’s cut trimmer and more tailored from a beautiful brandy cowhide that’ll age and deepen like, well, a fine brandy. You’ll maybe look a little Indiana Jones in it; some subtle flashes of your dad at his mid-‘80s best, perhaps. But mostly, you’ll just look like a cooler-than-cool you.

The Best Entry-Level Leather Jacket

Levi’s leather trucker jacket

Maybe you’ve never owned a leather jacket, for fear of not pulling it off or plunging deep into debt or both. This Levi’s jam solves both those problems. First off: It’s a trucker jacket, the most endlessly layerable layer known to man. That means you can wear it exactly as you would your tried-and-true denim version (i.e. all of the time, with everything) and ease into having all that shiny, buttery goodness as part of your day-to-day fits. And because it clocks in just under $400—a steal for real-deal leather this tough and attractive—you’ll be well positioned to save up for your next bolder, swankier leather grail.

The Best Shearing Leather Jacket

Acne Studios leather bomber jacket with geniuine shearling trim

Acne Studios leather bomber jacket with geniuine shearling trim

At some point or another, everyone goes through a shearling coat phase. Settling on exactly the right one, though, is paramount—it means the difference between looking like Tom Hardy IRL or looking like Tom Hardy as Bane. (Just to be clear: The latter is a bad thing, nerds.) Acne’s version is the right one. The shearling is fluffy and plentiful, the leather is rich and pebbly, and the whole thing is filtered through a tasteful Scandanavian lens to keep it from looking the least bit costume-y.

The Best Extremely-Right-Now Leather Jacket

Celine aviator jacket in soft lambskin

Hedi Slimane is the king of era-defining leather jackets. Back in 2013, shortly after he took the reins at Saint Laurent, his razor sharp motorcycle jacket instantly became the style-savvy calling card for every handsome famous guy in Hollywood. (They still make it, and it’s still exceedingly badass. Scroll down a little further.) Now, a year and change into his run at Celine, Slimane is back at it—this time with a sumptuous, drapey aviator jacket indicative of the Great Loosening that’s sweeping menswear right now.

The Best Trendproof Leather Jacket

Our Legacy 'Buta' leather jacket

Our Legacy “Buta” leather jacket

There’s a version of this blurb that focuses on how, just a couple of years ago, this boxy, Sopranos-y type of leather jacket was completely out of style, and isn’t it funny and strange that we find it stylish again now? But that would have been a false premise here, because this particular boxy, Sopranos-y leather jacket would never not be in style. Just look at the sheen and crinkle of that leather! The perfect proportions of the collar! Sure, it doesn’t hurt that the fashion pendulum has swung favorably in the direction of its silhouette, but a jacket this insanely gorgeous is about as immune to trends as it gets.
