AllSaints Biker Leather Jacket Style
Who doesn’t love a great leather jacket and what they stand for? Leather jackets can be worn for fashionable purposes, can create an intimidating appearance and can also give you a sense of “cool”. Made from a tanned hide of various animals; the leather is typically dyed black, brown and many other colors are a possibility. Leather jackets are produced in India, Canada, Mexico, United States and Pakistan and also come from different hides such as sheepskin, lambskin, buckskin, and cowhides.
Like all of the men’s fashion, the leather jacket came from its military background. Prized for its warmth, the leather jacket was often part of an overall uniform to protect bomber pilots from exposure to extreme climate conditions. Popularized by Hollywood back in the 1940’s and 50’s, the leather jacket can shape any character by providing the missing essence of “cool”.
While styling my Clay Biker Jacket from AllSaints, I wanted to keep that essence of cool alive. Drawing inspiration from bands such as The Ramones, Sid Vicious and style icons such as James Dean and Steve McQueen. Those guys knew that wearing a biker jacket gave you something extra to your personal style and that is what I wanted to incorporate into this post. I also wanted to do something different and casual for the fall.
The Kapow Short Sleeve shirt from AllSaints was something new for me to add to my style. I normally don’t wear short sleeve shirts but really enjoyed the slim fit and how soft and smooth the cotton and viscose fabric felt on my skin. With subtle details on the shirt like the allover mini print, the concealed button down collar and the rounded hemlines. Picking denim can be challenging for anyone, you have to factor in style, fabric, sizes, and material. I truly enjoyed the washed out color from the Lia Cigarette Jeans from AllSaints. When it comes to denim, I’m more of a traditional denim type of guy; meaning dark denim or a light pair of denim. These Lia’s cigarette jeans were grey and can be worn exactly how you wear a light pair of indigo denim. The Lia cigarette jeans are stretch denim with a narrow leg opening, so I would recommend trying on a size below your normal size. With added stretch to a pair of denim in time, they will give so going down a size they will fit better in the long run.
