Finding the perfect leather jacket is a taxing task for many guys. Some like to go for the full-on biker look with creased leather and metal fastenings, while others prefer a more subdued style with less bling and more leather. There just never seems to be a leather jacket men can agree looks cool, that doesn’t look to try-hard.
If you prefer the subtle look, then COS’s nubuck sleeve jacket should be on your to-buy list this season. It’s like a hybrid between a traditional leather jacket and a baseball jacket. The jacket is minimalist and is an understated way to wear contrast sleeves.
Made from 100% leather, with the sleeves in nubuck – a top-grain leather with a buffed finished – it treads a fine line between classic and cool. If you’re at the age where bright varsity jackets don’t suit you anymore, then consider investing in a quality leather jacket like this. Plus, it’s the perfect way to channel a badass Ryan Gosling look (à la the movie ‘Drive‘).
