The Best Leather Jacket Any Man Can Wear with Confidence

Become an instant outlaw with this beauty from John Varvatos.

The leather jacket has embodied all things rock 'n' roll ever since a certain pompadoured American crooned, "I ain't nothin' but a…"

Think: Iggy Pop, Nick Cave, Chris Cornell—an awesome leather jacket is the de facto uniform for rockers of all stripes. And now, menswear god John Varvatos has ensured that each and every one of us can call forth the dormant rock god we all know exists deep down: His latest line stars a handsome, eye-catching red leather jacket that's both understated and punk rock—and it can fit in with any wardrobe.

Most of Varvatos's work through the years has been designed from a palette of dark neutrals. As such, this muted, masculine red is a fresh addition.

The slim-cut on this beauty is both modern and cool. It also features a double zip, elbow patches, and a cleverly inlaid moldable wire in the collar, allowing for infinite possibilities of customization. As a finishing touch, the leather itself has been burnished to perfection, giving the jacket an air of mystery—this thing has been on tour, on stage, backstage. Who knows what it's seen? And more importantly, on you, who knows what it will see?
