Leather Jacket Rules for 2014-15!


No men’s wardrobe is complete without at least 2 leather jackets. It’s not a question of age or size. It is a MUST! Why? Because it’s a wardrobe heritage that will never go out of fashion! It’s a big trend since 1950s.
Besides it’s so equal to biker and bad boy/though guy look, which is always the biggest attraction for women; and also guys.
Leather is sexy. Leather is quality. Leather is a man essential…
Leather jackets has always been considered to be among menswear’s greatest staples.
After saying many good things about leather I have to add that leather trousers are not as welcomed as jackets. In fact don’t wear them at all.

As I mentioned that leather jackets are in fashion since 1950s it’s tricky to keep the style updated which means that the cut of the jacket is crucial.
  1. No aviator cut
  2. Bomber style is the best!
  3. Biker jacket always cool!
  4. Coloured leather jackets are bold and trendy.
  5. No leather jackets with faux furs anywhere.

There are many ways that you can rock your leather jackets in the most trendy way. 
  • Backpacks are one of the ways for an urban street look.
  • Opting for a brown leather jacket is an easy way to lend vintage-inspired design.
  • Trainers or cool biker boots would be the clever choices with your leather jacket.
  • Beanies. It’s not just with leather jackets. Always wear a beanie in winter. That’s what cool guys do. :)
  • Combine it with your office look. It looks really good.  (You can see how it is done by Benjamin Eidem)

Winter Calling | Time to layer up! (Including a giveaway - $50 gift cards !)


I have always been a layering fan when it comes to men’s fashion. Therefore I think winter is a great style opportunity. But it’s not and never should be just throwing on as many clothes as you can. Layering style is an art!

Layering is alls about being versatile which gives you an opportunity to mix up. The ones you should have are:

- Shirt or T-Shirt
- Cardigan
- Blazer
- Vest
- Jumper (only in some cases).

In a daily look you can always use a t-shirt and a cardigan with a shirt inside for a classic layering look during the day. But when it comes to office style or a gents look my advice would be a vest and a blazer which gives you the look of a catch with a sharp and effortless style.

PS: To be honest I can easily say that men’s vests are kind of a turn on for women. 

THE NAUGHTY SCHOLAR LOOK NEVER GETS OLD! 

Simon Baker is the first name that I can think about for vests. Justin Timberlake and David Beckham are the other runner ups who make the vests work as the coolest edgy style!

That also shows us that you don’t have to wear a tie every time you go with a vest. Rolled up sleeves are a must though…

If you are new to vests try to go with the colour grey. This is the safest choice. √ But you can always be more bold and go with Nick Wooster's style too...
