Within the leather jacket world, this is the endless debate. We say there are benefits to both worlds, which you may have caught in a previous article. While there are plenty of great already made jackets, having a custom leather jacket allows you to choose your color, style, lining, and leather. Instead of having to choose from things that already exist, you can create your own masterpiece with the leather jacket company. That way, when you wear it, it truly is a reflection of you. No one else out there is going to have your exact jacket. Because it is something that you created, it is unique to just you, and that knowledge itself is pretty awesome. Your jacket becomes more of a statement as well as an extension of yourself. Outerwear is the first thing people see on someone, especially when outside. Now, the first thing anyone sees is more a glimpse into who you are a person.
There is the other side to the coin, however. Some people may not enjoy making decisions, or have strong opinions about facets of their jacket. Having something that exists already and is ready to wear provides a different kind of ease to ordering your jacket. Ready-made jackets provide the convenience of not having to make any tough fashion decisions, and they tend to come in at a lower price tag. If you are shopping on a tighter budget, then ready to wear jackets may be the route for you to take for the time being.
Whether you go ready to wear or bespoke, there is no wrong answer. Having a leather jacket is an expansion on yourself and your wardrobe, no matter which way you go about it. It is an exciting investment that you will have for years to come.
