Banana Republic
Banana Republic leather biker jacket
Prefer a banded collar? This timeless and chic style from Banana Republic is as elegant as it comes, while still exuding that essential leather jacket edge. It's available in sizes S to XL. It has a zippered front and zip cuffs and features a lightly quilted liner that is ideal for layering.

Promising review: "I have three BR leather jackets and this one is as high quality as the rest. It's well-made, with a tailored, slim fit, and offers some edgy street style. As noted by others, it's more of a fashion jacket than a biker jacket because of the profile. What really takes this jacket over the top is the 'worn leather' look with six big brass zippers. The 'worn leather' look is subtle, and the leather just the right thickness and the zippers very high quality. The lining is comfortable and tasteful. The buttoned neck leather strap can get in the way and may need to be trained out of the way. Relatively expensive but still worth it -- recommended." — Northern Piper
Todd Snyder
Todd Snyder Dylan jacket
Made with high-quality burnished Italian leather, this gorgeous jacket from Todd Snyder is available in three colors, though the olive shade is a great way to deviate from the standard black and brown hues without feeling too kooky. The price point is, admittedly, extremely high, but if you're looking to splurge for a piece that will last a lifetime, this is definitely it. It's an updated twist on the vintage trucker leather jacket that will make an elegant layering piece as the weather continues to change. It's available in sizes XS to XXL.

Promising review: "Wow. I've been buying TS products for years, including several of the Dylan suede jackets, and this might be my favorite piece yet. The initial quality is on another level - the color looks incredible in person and the leather seems durable yet light and malleable in a way that just feels right. This will be my go-to leather jacket for warmer months for the foreseeable future." — Nicko A.
A rustic leather jacket with a removable hood
It may come as a surprise, but Amazon does in fact have genuine leather jackets. This warm and cozy option is reasonably priced and looks just as good as much more expensive jackets. it features a removable hood that zips off, so you can change the vibe of the jacket with ease. Get it in one of seven colors in sizes XS to 6X.

Promising review: "Warm, supple and stylish. I bought this for my husband for christmas and he loved it! He said it’s one of the best quality jackets he’s ever owned (granted he buys his jackets from Zara and other cheap/fast fashion stores). He says its warm, the leather is soft (not as stiff like cow but it leather), and he’s gotten compliments from his friends on it. I was scared to purchase this because of the price, but it was worth it. I’d buy it again." — Carolyn
The Cast
The Cast Bowery Jacket
A fair number of the most stylish men at HuffPost swear by this jacket from The Cast. Anytime one of them shows up wearing this jacket, it gets passed around the office so everyone can try it on. We can attest to the fact that it will elevate your cool factor by at least 40% the moment you try it on. It's available in sizes XS to 3XL and can be custom designed to your specifications. Take a look at what two of our HuffPost colleagues had to say about this stunner:

"After wanting one for years, I bought my leather jacket from The Cast as a surviving COVID present to myself. Run by the wonderfully-named punk rocker Chuck Bones, The Cast is a small business and all its jackets are made in New York. There is an option of made-to-measure, customized pieces but an off-the-rack jacket fit me perfectly. It's superb quality, I love the vintage vibes and it definitely makes me look far cooler than I actually am. It's easily the most expensive piece of clothing I own, but I have zero regrets. It's amazing how often strangers say 'Hey, nice jacket!' as they pass on the street, or even stop me to ask where it's from." — Will Tooke, managing editor, HuffPost video

I got mine from The Cast. Their custom jackets are incredible: you get to pick out everything from the style to the leather to the color (pink! mustard yellow!) to the hardware to the color of the lining (I got a baby blue lining) — and they fit them to you. It’s literally made for you — and to your exact specifications. They also have a wide variety of off-the-rack/ready-to-buy/ship styles too. They’re a local NYC [Lower East Side] shop but they do online orders and they’re SO GREAT to work with." — Noah Michelson, senior manager, editorial at HuffPost

How beautiful is this handmade leather jacket from Etsy seller UMBLeather? Available in XXS to 5X, it features a vintage-inspired waxed distressed style and is made from cowhide leather.
