Leather jackets have been a staple in men’s wardrobe for decades. Since the first leather jacket appeared in the 1950s, it has been universally accepted as a sign of masculine character and masculinity.
Leather is any tanned, stretched, dried and dyed leather of an animal. Although leather jackets used to be worn only when necessary, due to modern dyeing processes, today leather jackets are a pleasure to wear and an absolute comfort. Try one.
There are many materials from which leather jackets are made. Some of the most common are listed below.
Cowhide is the skin of full-grown cows. It is widely used in the manufacture of shoes, boots and leather jackets.
Lizard skin is generally used to make belts and shoes, but jackets are patterned to give them a lizard-skin-like appearance.
Pigskin is commonly used in South America and is generally soft to the touch.
Ostrich skin is known for the “bumpy” feeling one gets while touching it.
Suede is the leather one gets when the reverse side of the cowhide has been roughened until it becomes soft to the touch.
