Hi there! I know what you’re thinking. Why the pretentious question? Who really buys used leather jackets? Is this man insane to think of such a thing? Do used leather jackets even exist? What is the meaning to life? Why am I asking so many questions? Let me explain.
I was a fashion disaster. Well, I liked to think I dressed “okay.” Come to think of it, it wasn’t anyone’s fault. I came from a small summer vacation town in New York where fashion wasn’t a major focus in people’s lives. It wasn’t until one of my college relationships gradually turned me around to begin pairing simple colors together. Throughout the rest of my college years and moving into the real world, I’ve tested what worked and didn’t work, but knew my sense of style needed a major upgrade.
THE MOVE TO LEATHER
Moving into new styles of clothing can sometimes be a little scary, and I was far from being immortal to the feeling. I had a few run-ins with leather before – from leather gloves that were given to me as gifts and even my first few pairs of black leather shoes. But nothing prepared me for a leather jacket.
It was intimidating. It was stylish. It was something I thought I never could wear. I watched hours upon hours of men’s style videos and tested all kinds of other styling ideas, only to realize that the leather jacket was one piece of clothing I could not miss.
After some time, I searched locally for a classic black leather jacket. I eventually stumbled into a donation store, and while this wouldn’t be the first choice for buying a quality jacket, I was curious. To my disbelief, I found a used leather jacket for a price that was similar to a new designer leather jacket, which begged the question, “Who buys used leather jackets”?
To this day, I’ve learned to focus on quality, especially when dealing with a classic piece of clothing that will last you YEARS on end. I created this site to share my experience and journey about leather jackets as I learn them, and help other beginners and veterans alike enjoy them even more.
All the best,
