The ultimate GUIDE
REAL MEN REAL STYLE
When it comes to Leather Jackets, it's important to know what looks good on you and what doesn't. After all, no guy wants to look like he's wearing a jacket from his teenage son's wardrobe.
That means the sleeves need to be the right length, the shoulders shouldn't be too loose OR too tight across the shoulders, and the jacket should be able to zip up without pulling across your midsection.
The fact is, many leather jacket styles suit slimmer builds. So it's important to be realistic about what jacket styles suit a dad-bod and which you should avoid at all costs.
In general, a light-colored, textured leather is casual. For a more formal-looking leather jacket, opt for a black, smooth leather Moto Racer jacket.
Opt for a slightly slimmer fit (after all, chances are you're still in pretty good shape) with more details to make the garments look ‘younger'.
40-year-old guys should look for biker jackets or double rider jackets that are sleek, well-fitted, and made from high-quality leather.
There are two main types of leather jackets I would recommend for men in their 50s: – The Bomber Jacket – The Field Jacket
For guys in their 60s, there are two types of leather jacket I would recommend: – Leather Car Coats – Leather Blazer (or the Cattleman)
