The Sunday Sale: Pre-Fund and Save on the Best Men’s Leather Jacket at Taylor Stitch

I don’t know about you, but I tend to run hot in the summer months. It’s for precisely that reason that it might seem a tad bit unusual to be talking about one of the best leather jackets for men, but rest assured that we’re doing so with good reason in today’s Sunday Sale. Any time Taylor Stitch pulls back the curtain on the ever-so-cool Taylor Stitch Workshop, it’s absolutely worth seeing what’s in store. And in the case of today’s featured menswear deal, it’s the Taylor Stitch Bomber Jacket in Whiskey Suede, one of the best men’s leather jackets out there. As luck would have it, it’s also on sale for 20 percent off right now, as great a deal as you’re apt to find on one of the best leather jackets for men. That discount takes the price down to $638 from $798, not a bad deal in the slightest.

Like all Taylor Stitch outerwear, it’s got every mark of quality you’d expect, including the finest materials on the market, the most durable construction and just a touch of timeless appeal and classic quality. Again, this makes the Taylor Stitch Bomber Jacket in Whiskey Suede one of the coolest leather jackets you can buy right now, even if it might not seem a wise choice at first glance. But you’re in luck if you start pre-funding it right now (it’s on the market for about three more weeks): The Taylor Stitch Bomber Jacket in Whiskey Suede won’t actually hit your doorstep until late October, right around the time you’re going to want to layer up with one of the best men’s bomber jackets. It’s hard to pass up that offer, right? No doubt about it.

Beyond the fact that it takes a classic style and upgrades it in a big way, the Taylor Stitch Bomber Jacket in Whiskey Suede is exceptional in plenty of other ways. Super-soft 3oz. calf suede should prove refined yet durable, and the texture and color is absolutely perfect for fall. Cotton twill lining through the body gives this stylish leather jacket a bit of added warmth and structure without weighing you down. That blend means it’s an excellent jacket to layer atop everything from a Taylor Stitch Oxford shirt to a Taylor Stitch henley on blustery fall days (and those days are coming back, trust me!).

To make things even better and more stylish, the Taylor Stitch Bomber Jacket in Whiskey Suede features contrasting ribbing at the collar and cuffs, plus a handy interior chest pocket (Taylor Stitch says this pocket is ideal for storing your cell phone, and it’s hard not to argue with that utility). The real icing on the cake is the fact that you can get this stellar, refined and versatile jacket on sale for 20 percent off right now. It’s a perfect jacket for fall weekend getaways or as a blazer substitute at the office, but really, with a jacket this well-made and classic-yet-modern, you can wear it just about anywhere.

Style Pick of the Week: Schott NYC Vintage Fitted Motorcycle Jacket

An iconic jacket you need to add to your cart — or your wish list.

Ladies and gentleman, today’s Style Pick of the Week is instantly covetable, highly classic and vying for the top spot on your list of your favorite menswear for any time of year, all at once. It’s the Schott NYC Vintage Fitted Motorcycle Jacket (also known as the Schott Perfecto), and it’s the best leather jacket your money can buy. The even better news? It’s now being sold by your favorite online retailer, Huckberry (they are your favorite, right?). But more on all that in a moment. The Schott Perfecto is a timeless style staple with a reputation that precedes itself, one that dates back decades. You’ve seen this jacket immortalized onscreen by Marlon Brandon and James Dean, and you’ve perhaps seen the classic Schott Perfecto in more recent years on The Killers’ Brandon Flowers (where I first spotted it years ago). In short, it’s an unimpeachable jacket you’ll be very glad you bought heading into fall. And if you’ve been thinking about dipping your toes into the waters of the coveted, badass leather moto jacket, there’s no better purchase to pick up right now (for a price, mind you) than this Schott Vintage Motorcycle Jacket. What sets this iconic jacket apart from the pack? The list is long and varied, my friends.

The difference comes down to the details — and the details of the Schott Perfecto are simply legendary.

For one, the iconic Schott Perfecto is so named because of the rich, tough-as-nails cowhide Perfecto leather, the kind of leather that’ll adhere to your movements and wearing patterns over time — exactly as the legends who wore this jacket knew so well. It’s all done up in a truly badass and road-ready biker jacket silhouette, with the sort of pedigree and construction that allows one to actually wear it when riding a motorcycle. And if that’s not your thing, the Schott Perfecto adds some seriously cool style to your ensemble, no matter where you take it.¬† At a rock concert with a classic chambray shirt and slim black denim? This leather moto jacket is your best friend. Heading out for a fall Old Fashioned on a chilly night? Wear this thing over a thermal henley for easygoing-yet-cool style — the 100 percent cotton flannel lining (in a fitting red plaid) adds some warmth for the season. The nickel-plated brass hardware and custom “SCHOTT” snaps are all one-of-a-kind, too. This jacket is built to last for years to come, so it’s absolutely worth the investment. Fear not, because if there’s one thing I can guarantee, it’s that you’re going to wear the heck of out the Schott NYC Vintage Fitted Motorcycle Jacket — year after year after year.

When the calendar turns —¬†ever so slowly — from the heat of summer to the crisp breeze of fall, I start to get excited. If you’ve been reading The Style Guide, you know that fall is an essential time for fans of rugged menswear — it’s the perfect time to break out those trusty leather boots, slip into some sturdy¬†selvedge denim and relish the chance to tie it all together with great outerwear — like¬†a classic leather jacket.¬†That’s certainly the case with today’s Style Pick of the Week, and it’s fitting that I’ve teamed up with US Authentic to showcase how I get ready for fall. Not familiar with the brand? Start learning — these¬†jackets are perfect for the months to come.¬†The season is¬†a time of transitions that calls for classic style and added layers to fight the cold, plus a dash of durable appeal. In that regard,¬†US Authentic¬†leather jackets incorporate everything you could want and then some. They’re packed with heritage inspiration, high-quality materials and a rugged-refined feel. That’s¬†absolutely¬†true of¬†the Baron, an A-1 jacket that manages to capture vintage vibes and modern style all at once. The brand takes a similar approach with other silhouettes, including an A-2 flight jacket and a bomber jacket, but¬†the Baron was my pick — and for good reason.

The Baron is built to authentic specs, just like the old days — that means vintage goatskin leather, a 100 percent cotton lining and sturdy 100 percent wool rib knitting at the collar, cuffs and waistband. The jacket’s materials are true to the World War II era, and you can definitely feel it — the Baron is sturdy, durable and yet slim-fitting and timeless.¬†The rich brown¬†leather color and dark¬†brown wool cuffs fit right in with the deeper tones of fall. too. This is certainly a jacket you’re going to get a lot of use out of in the season ahead (and well beyond). I’d suggest styling it much as I did — with a rough-and-tumble denim shirt, sturdy selvedge and your favorite pair of wingtip boots — and then heading out to explore a park or grab a coffee. Of course, a classic jacket like the Baron¬†can be complemented nicely with flight-inspired accessories like stylish Aviator sunglasses. The rest of the time, I’d suggest you stick with similarly retro-inspired style —¬†pair the Baron¬†with a durable long-sleeve henley, sharp chukka boots¬†and slim denim (and if I were you, I’d look out for a very similar #OOTD next week). Seriously, the timeless style of the Baron¬† really can’t be topped — you’re getting a piece of outerwear modeled on a classic silhouette, with the specs to back it up. Heck, you¬†could wear this jacket every day for months on end.¬†That’s investment-worthy style at its finest.¬†Are you ready for fall yet? I sure am.
