Pros and Cons of Buying Leather Jackets

List: Posted: 04/04/11

Many people consider buying a leather jacket to be an investment, especially since leather jackets can quite literally last you a lifetime if you pick the right one.  There are several reasons to consider buying a new leather jacket, but you might also have great reasons that keep you from making the purchase.


First of all, jacket styles change quickly.  When you have paid hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars on a piece of clothing, it is hard to watch it die a slow and lonely death in the back of your closet.  If you do have the budget to buy new leather jackets with each new style change, then this reason for not buying may not discourage you at all. 


However, there are solutions if you still really want to buy a leather jacket but you do not have the cash to buy one every year.  You can find a style that is classic and simple, which means that your leather jacket will always be up to date.


Many people may also have moral objections to buying leather jackets.  If you have personal reservations about buying products made from animal skin, then leather jackets are certainly not for you. 


A really cool leather jacket can be hard to pass up, though.  If this is the case, then you can buy them in animal-friendly materials. These days you can buy imitation leather quite close in appearance and feel to the real thing.  You won't need to sacrifice style or quality to enjoy the same styles as the most popular real leather jackets.
