Leather jackets are the founding existence of many cultures and subcultures. As a result, many types of leather jackets have come out of the woodwork (or should I say, leatherwork). There are some that are designed with fashion in mind. Others are clean and classic. But when you really want to make a bold statement, you want a punk leather jacket.
A punk leather jacket can come in many colors, designs, and have various extra additions to the jacket like spikes or jewels to give the wearer that noticeable look. I’ll give you a little history behind them, the various clean and smooth styles you can wear, simple and bold colors to match your outfit, what you can expect to pay for these types of jackets, and my personal punk leather jacket favorites for a grunge look.
As you learn about other leather jackets, you’ll see that each type has a specific history to it. While I won’t get into the details of them here, a punk leather jacket is synonymous with a Motorcycle or Double Rider leather jacket.
The Motorcycle or Double Rider leather jacket is unique, bold, and was designed for motorcycle wear in mind. You’ll see bikers from the past and present wear these jackets, and today even fashionistas and celebrities sporting them for their daring look. It’s known as the most rebellious and edgy type of jacket.
Punk leather jackets do have a function, and its existence really came from a need to protect a motorcycle rider or biker while riding a motorcycle. The jacket’s skin is typically durable enough to withstand a fall. It is no surprise then that leather jackets of this type are called Motorcycle jackets.
While you don’t have to be a biker to enjoy a punk leather jacket, you can still get one for its noticeable and bold profile. Many celebrities and fashionistas alike wear a motorcycle leather jacket to make a bold statement, without needing to ride any motorcycle.
Typically you’ll find a Motorcycle or Double Rider leather jacket having a wide-breast collar similar to a dress jacket with a mix of zippers, chains, graphics, and even spikes or steel bezels to add a look that speaks to being more than just a simple leather jacket.
Punk leather jackets are meant to be just as they seem – flashy and daring. With that, you can see these jackets come in a variety of colors such as red or blue. You can also find them in more classic colors such as black and brown, and, if you’re feeling just a bit daring but not over the top, you can find a jacket in a classic color that still sends a bold statement just from wearing it.
Punk leather jackets come in a large amount of price ranges. This is due to the brand, quality of the leather, and other material that goes into manufacturing the jacket.
If you’re looking for a ballpark range for a punk leather jacket, a decent one in my opinion will usually require your investment of $100 to $900. It’s a wide range, but then again, it does depend on the brand and quality of the material. You can find cheaper jackets, but I don’t particularly recommend them.
Current Picks For A Grunge Profile
I’ve gone and looked through hundreds of leather jackets in a variety of styles. With that, I’m able to recommend some good brands and jackets that I think you’d like or consider when looking at having something with a bold look.
Even though Amazon has not been my go-to website for fashion for quite a while, I’ve noticed a good amount of people buying leather jackets from the site, especially punk leather jackets. Some jackets are even top sellers and the “most popular” choices! With that, Amazon has become a contender in buying leather jackets from all price ranges, starting from as low as $40 to as high as $30,000.
