Buying your first leather jacket is a bit of a rite of passage for a lot of guys. It is not only something that is extremely cool, will make you look good, and timelessly stylish, it is also a sign of maturity and a sign that you have grown enough and earned enough to get yourself a leather jacket. It is not something little boys wear, leather jackets were made to be worn by men.
Now as men, we should know what looks good on us and what does not. We need to have an understanding of how some articles of clothing are different than others and that they need to be worn in ways different to each other. The same thing applies to leather jackets. You need to know how they are supposed to be worn. Way too many people walk around wearing leather jackets, looking horrible in them because they chose the wrong jacket because they do not understand how you are supposed to wear them to make yourself look good. So to fix this problem we are going to be talking about one of the most important things to know when buying pure leather jackets for men.
The one main thing you need to know is that your leather jackets should be a few sizes smaller than your other jackets or hoodies. Leather jackets are going to expand a little after some use and you do not want to get a big jacket that will get even bigger. You will want to make sure that the jacket hugs your underarms and your chest. There should not be more than 3 inches between your body and your jacket. You will also need to make sure the jacket ends at your belt and does not go any farther than that.
