Pair Perfecto the way it was intended, with a white T-shirt and some effortlessly worn jeans. This jacket goes well with everything from Gucci to Levi, so you don’t have to worry too much about your wardrobe or coming on as the wild one. Finish your outfit off with a carefully picked accessory (like some shades or a fresh pair of kicks) and you’ll be channeling your own personal Marlon Brando in no time.
Look for well-oiled leathers with a good fit. You’ll probably like a steerhide jacket. Your best bet? The PER70 motorcycle jacket or the lambskin P274. Read on to see a review of the PER70.

If punk-rock fashion isn’t for you, maybe preppy clothing is more your style. Perfecto looks just as good with a nice button-up as it does with T-shirts. Consider pairing Perfecto with a cashmere sweater, some dark trousers, and some nice dress shoes. Looking to go out for a special occasion? Replace your suit jacket with a leather one. People will notice.
Look for a jacket with a collar instead of a lancer front. Not feeling the collar? Choose a jacket made of more than just leather. You’ll still feel daring, but it won’t take away from that preppy look. You’ve been voted most likely to like either the P737 or the P751. Keep reading for a review of the P751.

Dress up. The polished look is very similar to the preppy one. A key difference: you’re trying to impress. Be it date night or just an upgraded night on the town, you can pair Perfecto with a button-up dress-shirt, matching trousers, and a pair of Oxfords in similar color. Dark shades are your friend here, but the leather look goes well with lighter hues too.
Feeling adventurous? Leather on leather never hurt anyone.
Look for a slimmer jacket that will marry well with any dress-clothes you might wear. You’ll most likely like an unlined jacket, since it’ll flatter your figure without hulking up any layers you put under it. Consider the P522 or the P213 in black. Up ahead, you’ll find a review of the P213.

Pro tip:no matter your style, a Perfecto leather jacket does best as the highlight of your outfit. Yes, you can pair your jacket with more daring pieces, but these jackets are showstoppers on their own.
