Leather Jacket? hmmmm
Let me tell you. Below are the top three reasons that why you need this leather jacket.
Yeah, we’ll go ahead and put this one at the top of the list.
Attitude. Style, funkiness, class, uniqueness, that bad boy vibe – call it what you want to, but leather has an attitude that cloth doesn’t.
The nice thing about this leather is that its tough-guy appeal is timeless. We associate leather jacket with ruggedness because rugged people have depended on leather since the early days of humanity. It’s not a constructed image the way that ripped jeans or metal studs are. This leather jacket will give you a sense of toughness, competence, and edginess, even when it’s a very smooth and refined style of jacket.
On a much more practical note, This leather is tough. Leather hide protects an animal for its whole life. Personal armor has used leather for protection for almost all of human history, up until the advent of bullet-resistant synthetics in the 20th century.
You’re hopefully never going to need your jacket to turn a knife or protect you from a bear’s teeth, but the toughness that protects from those holds up just fine against lesser, day-to-day wear and tear as well. This leather jacket is made from quality hide and treated well should last through all kinds of nicks and scrapes.
Not quite the same thing as protection, the durability of leather is its natural longevity. Good hide gets more supple as it ages, but doesn’t crack or split. If you’re careful about treating it when it needs it, leather can last a lifetime.
This is a good consideration for anyone and a huge consideration for practical men whose jackets see a lot of real, outdoors use. Even tough denim or canvas frays and comes apart thread by thread eventually. As long as you can avoid a puncture that goes clean through you’re not going to see your jacket coming apart on you.
