Ah, the beauty of a leather jacket. For fall, winter and spring, a classic leather jacket can turn a man’s wardrobe from nothing special to effortlessly stylish. I spotted this Fashionisto in a stylish version of the classic leather jacket and appreciated his polished look. With a variety of styles available in the classic leather jacket, from vintage-inspired to more modern styles, it is impossible for a man to go wrong with this necessary wardrobe staple.
Name: Tom Goodsir
CollegeFashionista: How often do you wear your leather jacket?
Tom Goodsir: It depends on the season, but I’d say I wear it maybe once a week — give or take. It has been a really good investment.
CF: Is there any fashion trend you try to stay away from?
TG: I don’t think I could ever just walk around in gym clothes, like a lot of guys do at university. It just seems a bit lazy to me.
CF: What is one of your favorite stores to shop at?
TG: I definitely end up in the men’s section of Zara a lot.
CF: What is your favorite season to dress for?
TG: As a guy, sometimes layering clothes on in the winter can be a bit complicated and not exactly stylish. I like just being able to throw a leather jacket on in fall or spring. It’s easy and still looks good.
How To: To get this Fashionista’s look, of course the first step is to find the perfect leather jacket. Try ASOS for a variety of styles and shapes. This version by Barneys Originals is a modern twist on the classic look. For something more traditional or vintage-inspired, try this version also found on ASOS.
