The four options listed about are the most popular leather jacket types, but there are others available. These other types can vary in popularity depending on the current trends.
The leather peacoat was a popular choice for a few years. These only work with dressy outfits and not as casual wear. It’s usually better to go with a standard wool peacoat, which is more versatile.
The Varsity jacket is popular among the younger crowd, although these often aren’t all leather. They can work well as casual wear, but not in professional settings.
The “Matrix” movies made the leather trench coat somewhat popular. That being said, these are definitely a fashion statement and don’t work as casual or professional wear. If you want to stand out, you’re probably better off with a Fencing Jacket.
Now you have an idea of the most popular leather jacket types on the market. While a large part of deciding on a leather jacket is how you think the jackets look, you can narrow down your options by figuring out which style fits what you want.
Do you like to rock an edgy look? The Double Rider works well for that. If you want a timeless, classic style, both the Bomber Jacket and the Double Rider offer that. The Moto keeps it simple while also looking very modern, and the Fencing Jacket can be a fun choice if you’re looking to branch out with your collection.
