The black leather motorcycle jacket is one of the most versatile pieces in all of fashion. Not only because you can toss it on with just about everything to add an air of rebellion (or a poke at the concept of the air of rebellion), but because its neutrality makes it equally viable for early spring as it is for fall and early winter. With that in mind, here are four that won’t even break the $500 mark.
The Jacket: Thanks to the wonders of the direct-to-consumer model, DSTLD’s got a full-grain version for you it claims will last you 30 years.
The Buy Line: $380
The Jacket: Deadwood’s is the punkest of the bunch. Each one is patched together from pieces of vintage leather, so they’re all a bit different, and all on the lighter, supple side.
The Buy Line: $253
The Jacket: Topman: always reliable.
The Buy Line: $350
The Jacket: Even aside from this bad boy, you should put Selected Homme on your “I need to look good but can’t drop a paycheck” list.
The Buy Line: $369
