À la mod
Men's leather bomber and Harrington jackets are amongst some of the most popular jacket styles for men.
The bomber style is based on a military design and is typically distinguished by its ribbed collar and cuffs and slit pockets. The Harrington is a similarly iconic style which rose to popularity in the 50s and 60s. This design was originally styled as a golfing jacket and made in showerproof, lightweight materials. Sported by screen legends such as Steve McQueen and Paul Newman this jacket became associated with an effortlessly sharp style. Brought bang up to date in soft leather, the Harrington will add an edgy off duty style to an outfit and can be found in classic and hooded styles.
Another hip length leather option, very similar to the bomber, is the flight jacket. This 80s favourite was traditionally insulated with cosy sheepskin to keep pilots warm at high altitudes.
Men's leather puffer jackets in both short and longer length styles also convey a street style while keeping the wearer insulated and warm.
