How to Shop for a High Quality Leather Jacket

Whether you’re looking for a lightweight, fashion-forward leather jacket or a rugged leather coat, knowing which style is right for you can be a daunting task. Here are some helpful guidelines to help you find that perfect leather jacket to that will last you many years to come.

1. Durability

One of the outstanding features of a high-quality leather jacket is its durability. Generally speaking, the larger the animal, the more substantial the leather will be, both in thickness and in weight. While a leather jacket purchased at a discount store may seem like a bargain, it won’t look as good nor last nearly as long as a premium one. The investment is well worth it: when quality leather jackets are properly cared for, they can last a lifetime.

2. Quality Workmanship

Overland works with the top leather tanneries and manufacturers of the world, and we pride ourselves on delivering the very best.

3. Types of Leather

The type of leather is a huge determining factor in a coat’s function and feel. There is no “best type” of leather; rather, each has its own unique characteristics and strengths. Here’s a breakdown of various types of leather

3. Fashion, Fit, & Extras

Another indicator of quality in a leather jacket is its cut. The care taken in constructing a beautiful, well-fitting, figure-flattering coat should be apparent. Does it fit well in the sleeves when you move your arms around? Do the zippers seem sturdy and move smoothly? Is the cut complementary to your shape? Carefully choosing a finely-crafted coat guarantees that you’ll look and feel your best, year after year.

Many leather jackets feature luxurious lining and trim that offer extra warmth and durability. Additions such as plush sheepskin lining which lends wonderful insulation, or fur trim for added elegance and luxurious warmth; these added touches can make a leather coat really stand out from the rest.
