Buying one of the best leather jackets for men is the easiest way to upgrade your fall outerwear — it’s that simple. Seeing as we’re on the verge of fall and all, a leather jacket is a handy piece to have when the temperatures dip — throwing one on adds an instant “cool” factor … while keeping you from getting too cool temperature-wise. And styles abound for the guy who likes variety — try on black moto jacket or a beautiful vintage-inspired brown leather jacket for good measure. You can wear them any way you please, too. That’s the beauty of buying one of the best leather jackets for men — the right one rewards you with style points in spades.
Todd Snyder Dean Jacket in Black, $995
Splurge-worthy, edgy, and wearable with your broken-in black denim or slim chinos in equal measure. Certainly. Yes indeed, the Dean Jacket is the cream of the crop when it comes to an updated take on a timeless essential.
Abercrombie & Fitch Golden Bear Suede Bomber Jacket, $600
This suede jacket might be different than what you typically think of when the term “leather jacket” comes up, but it’s all there — and it’s 100 percent stylish. The combination of a bomber jacket silhouette and the black suede fabrication make this one you can wear over a blue Oxford and a black knit tie for a bit of edgy-yet-dressy style. Because the jacket is suede, though, it’s probably best for guys who live in drier climes.

Team this jacket with a white Oxford and broken-in brown leather wingtip boots for a classic everyday look.
Belstaff Maxford 2.0 Blouson Jacket, $1,600
We might have thrown this handsome, exceedingly covetable Belstaff jacket on this list just for kicks … or did we? In all seriousness, Belstaff makes perhaps the best leather jackets in the world — yes, there’s a debate — and it only helps that one super-stylish Mr. David Beckham approves of the brand.
