The aviator jacket This jacket is a great way to participate in the military trend while still keeping warm. They look great paired with chunky sweaters and a great pair of denim. Don’t be afraid to try throwing one over a great button up,a vneck sweater or even a suit! Tip: this jacket tends to look better on gents with a slimmer frame due to all the extra padding.
The bomber jacket This jacket looks good on men of many different shapes.Tip: beware of ones with snug elastic on the bottom as they tend to draw attention to a wider waist. This jacket looks best when made simple. Throw on a simple tee and jeans and get your James Dean on.
The moto jacket This jacket is an extremely diverse piece as it can can be worn with a simple outfit, or dressed up for a night out.Tip: It’s a statement piece so try and make the jacket the focus !
Leather jackets should hug your shoulders
You made need to size down to find your perfect fit
Your sleeves should be slim and not too long
The jacket should hit at the waist no longer and definitely not shorter
Colours are fun but black is best. If you’re going to try out a bold colour keep it the main focus and make sure the rest of your outfit is muted.
