How to Wear a Leather Jacket This Winter

How to Wear a Leather Jacket This Winter 0

The leather jacket is just as much a classic as the basic white T-shirt or a pair of blue jeans. If you made investment in a great leather jacket, you probably don’t want to quit wearing it just because the temperatures are approaching freezing and snow seems more likely than rain. But to be honest, many of us do not know or are unsure of how to wear a leather jacket during the cold freezing weather. After all, the familiar pairing of a tee shirt and jeans just isn’t going to cut it when you need to stay warm.

How about if I say , with a bit of preparation, chances are good that you'll be able to make your investment in a leather jacket work in winter. Well, you just need to follow these four easy steps to figure out the best way to wear your lovely leather jacket eve during the coldest time of the year.

1- Assess the Jacket's Flexibility

Before you start mentally building all kinds of winter outfits around your leather jacket, think carefully about what you can and can’t wear with the jacket. Is it extremely slim-fitting? Then you probably won’t be able to wear that bulky fisherman knit sweater. Is it lined in the first place? Does it have big roomy pockets? Does it kind of ride up on you? The answers to these questions will tell you whether your particular coat can go the distance.

2- Protect the leather and treat it if required:

Before you even think about wearing your leather jacket out into snowy or rainy weather, make sure that the leather is protected against the elements.Read the tags on the jacket and figure out whether it’s equipped to repel water already. If not, treat it with a protectant that’s specifically designed for leather or suede garments, following the instructions carefully and make sure that you let the treatment dry adequately before wearing the jacket out of the house.

3. Accessorize wisely

Though your hands might stay warm enough when you stuff them into the pockets of that heavy wool topcoat, your leather jacket probably won’t offer quite the same benefit. Invest in a hat, a scarf, and a pair of gloves — preferably in a versatile color that pairs well with most of your favorite pieces, so that you won’t be tempted to throw caution to the wind and leave them behind due to a case of clashing colors.

4- Add Some Warmth

Here’s the fun part. Even if your jacket is lightly insulated, you’re probably going to need to wear some warm layers underneath.A thin down shell or a cotton hoodie will make up for any insulation the coat lacks, while giving you a couple of extra pockets to work with. Make sure both layers are about the same length so you’re not adjusting things every two minutes. And if you’re used to wearing a longer wool topcoat or down coat, make sure that you don’t forget about your legs. Adding a base layer, like thermal long underwear or compression leggings, can go a long way toward keeping you warm without the coverage of a longer coat.

5. If nothing works, consider a new jacket

Sometimes your spring and fall-friendly leather jacket just doesn’t cut it during the winter with the layering efforts, you can consider purchasing a new jacket. There are a few popular styles — the flight jacket, the motorcycle jacket, and the cafe racer jacket. But if you’re going to make the investment in another jacket, look for one with significant insulation; perhaps even consider channeling the 1970’s with a jacket with a shearling lining and collar.

Luke Skywalker Black Dress

  Luke Skywalker Return of the Jedi Dress (Buy from Here)

The Skywalker dress used in the movie Return Of Jedi, is so detailed and with many pieces that buying all the pieces seperatly and then combining them togather would not be a good idea. We found this complete dress on Amazon and one on eBay as well. This dress looks perfect without going into minor details and saves a lot of time. This dress includes a Shirt, a vest, a tabard and pants. It this comes under $100, which is very good price for all the pieces.

Although winter is a great time to experience breathtaking landscapes, it can also be hazardous for people who are unprepared for the elements. Having the proper clothing and being aware of winter hazards are both important parts of being prepared. In this guide, we offer helpful advice on how to dress for winter, whether you're skiing, snowshoeing, ice fishing, working outdoors or just shoveling the driveway. We’ll also cover some basic information on dangers like frostbite and hypothermia. 

Shark Explore-R Helmet




Recently we were fortunate enough to get our hands on Shark's Explore-R helmet . Made from carbon fiber and sporting a configurable shield system, it stands out from the rest of the dual sport helmets.

 With a clear finish over the carbon black fiber and no graphics any flaws will stand out immediately. The Explore-R that we received has none. Plastic bits are well trimmed with no flash left on them, the vents open and close easily and shield operation is smooth. This helmet probably has the smoothest and most useful internal sun visor in production. Even after weeks of daily riding in all kinds of weather, and getting smacked by some large road debris the helmet shows no signs of obvious wear.

REV'IT! Orlando H2O Jeans


 The Orlando H2O keeps you protected from the elements as well as the road, thanks to a 100% waterproof membrane laminated to the poly cotton stretch denim 3L. Strategically placed PWR | shield adds abrasion resistance to critical impact zones, while the mesh liner wicks moisture away from your legs. The standard equipped CE-rated SEESMART knee protectors and the optional CE-rated Tryonic hip protectors (sold separately) provide the expected impact protection. The classic five-pocket, regular-cut Orlando H2O are so wearable, it's easy to forget they are high-tech, all-weather motorcycle jeans.


Cafe Racer Leather Jacket


No café racer project is complete without the requisite café racer jacket. To stir the pot at the get-go, let me say that what is generally referred to today as a café racer jacket preceded what has been defined as a café racer bike by at least a couple of decades. Although this article is about jackets, it is not about the history of motorcycle leathers. It is about whatever little I’ve learned that may help with selecting a jacket that may suit you and your machine in today’s cafe racer culture. I assume here, of course, that a vintage machine is best matched by a vintage jacket.  So, with that in mind and with due respect for personal preferences and all new quality jacket makers of today, I must rephrase my opening line.

No vintage café racer project is complete without the requisite vintage café racer jacket.


Scorpion Klaw II Men's Leather Street Motorcycle Gloves



 The new scorpion Gloves Klaw II go a long way towards making sure that’s the case for riders looking to brave the cold. Durable, goatskin leather construction, TPU molded knuckle protection and Pre-curved palm and fingers give grip comfort. TPR molded finger protectors and Rib-stretch knuckle expansion panels provide flexibility.

Scorpion Gloves are some of the best-fitting gauntlets out there, but be sure to follow their measurement advice — a large-sized pair of gloves usually works, but in the Klaw IIs an XXL set is ideal.


Harley Davidson & Marlboro Man Jacket



If you’re looking for a riding jacket that can handle year round life on the road, the Harley Davidson and the Marlboro man leather jacket is it.

This Harley Davidson and the Marlboro man Leather Jacket is made from heavy duty durable Cowhide Leather. High Quality patches have been stitched professionally making it an example of a supreme craftsmanship. Not only it can be applied as a biker wear, but also can style casually, enabling you to be a perfect role model for others of styling in your ways.
