There is something about buying a new leather jacket that any other piece of fashion does not compare to. Is it its rich warming smell? Or the way its stiff form seems to fit over your body perfectly? making the purchase and getting it home for the first time is a treat of an experience.
Way Back when Men were not the stylish, groomed and civilised creatures that we see today the primitive versions of ourselves would keep warm by wearing animal hides, they would be treated with natural ingredients and dried out with smoke to be worn keeping the cave men warm in the cold.
Things have moved on a little bit since then and the leather jacket has remained a firm favourite for several decades. Although they are worn to keep warm just like in the past this is not the only purpose that they now serve.
Leather Jackets are often key pieces in many fashion designers range, and are often seen on catwalks. With so many different styles, shapes and different designs a leather jacket can make any statement you want it to. A smart, sophisticated fitted Leather Blazer is perfect for a more formal occasion, where as someone may want to suggest they are rebellious in a Biker Jacket, which stems back to the Punk Era which began in the 1970′s and continues within some niches even now. There are just so many different styles to choose from that you really can make any statement about your attitude, styling, or even music taste.
