Okay, that last question might be a little philosophical, but we understand that purchasing the ideal leather jacket can be unforgiving on your bank account. As specialists in leather, we know that it's a purchase you won’t live to regret. Leather jackets are an investment piece complete with heritage, masculinity and a forever relationship with fashion. At Lakeland Leather our jackets are designed, crafted and finished to the highest quality for long-lasting wear and style.

The Biker Jacket

The historical staple of motorists and symbolic jacket of music culture: the leather biker jacket. The biker was initially designed with practicality in mind. The asymmetric cut allowed motorcyclists to comfortably move with their bikes without the jacket digging into their body. The leather biker today is now the epitome of style with a youthful and edgy twist. Branded as ‘cool’, it’s a transformative outerwear piece. It’s impressive, without looking too hard to impress anybody. It presents a tough outer shell, and personifies adventure. Does that sound like you? Take a look at the Brando for our take on the LBJ, presenting all the hallmarks of a Lakeland favourite.

The Bomber Jacket

Packed full of history and heritage, the flight jacket, also known as the bomber jacket, is arguably the king of all leathers. It has a rich history stemming from wear by the military in WW1. In today’s fashion, the bomber is seen as a more relaxed piece of outerwear that is adjustable to a range of looks. Despite the history, bomber jackets present a modern attitude. Our Swinside Jacket is a contemporary bomber style with an understated design, to keep your wardrobe up to date for the smart, casual aesthetic. Does that match your look?

Moving onto the field jacket, this outerwear style is a look to stand the test of time. A no-mess, utilitarian cultured garment for men with a rugged appeal. The perfect jacket for the outdoors, it is the ideal crossover of function and longevity for a mixture of occasion and styles. With detailing typical of a field jacket, the Rob Leather Coat is a handsome and hard-wearing outer garment.
