for fall: the motorcycle jacket

i’ve been obsessed with motorcycle jackets ever since i discovered the ramones.  it’s one of those things i’ve always wanted, but have been hesitant to pull the trigger on because i don’t “technically” have or ride a motorcycle.  who cares about that?  not me.  now might be the time to buy one as affordable options are popping up in online stores like park and bond.

if you’re thinking about buying one, here are a few things to remember: #1 black is best.  this fall i’ve seen them in brown, burgundy, dark green, and other strange colors.  stay from those.  go with black.  #2 don’t buy a “”washed” leather jacket.  part of the fun is breaking it in.  “distressed” and “washed” leather jackets will make you look like you’re trying too hard.  #3 don’t blow your budget.  there’s no reason to spend your life savings on a motorcycle jacket.  you may never wear it.  keep it under a grand with these two options below.

    this is just stupid. i like your style and from what ive seen, nothing you wear would make me think you’ll be able to pull off a motor cycle jacket. in reality, the only people who i see wearing one are either bikers or gay guys who are so up on fashion that they’ve been wearing biker jackets for years.

    i thought it was april first for a second…

    i would agree that it doesn’t fit my style at all. my wife most likely wouldn’t let me in the house with one (see first comment). i grew up listening to a lot of clash and ramones music, so i’ve always wanted one. that’s where this is coming from in case you were worried about me.
