Top 40 Best Dog Breeds for Men – Coolest Dog Breeds
The term “man’s best friend” isn’t just an opinion. There truly is no better companion than a loving, loyal dog. From their unconditional love and support to the comfort and fun they provide, the bond between a man and his dog is a sacred one. It goes back millennia, to the first domesticated wolf, and continues to this day.
If you love dogs and are wondering about some of the best breeds for men, keep reading. This rundown of the top 38 best dog breeds for men outlines their temperament, basic needs, and other important information.
Regardless if you’re single, married with children, or perhaps live in an apartment, I’m going to share with you plenty of options to consider. Now, you might be wondering why are these are my top choices? And what makes certain breeds better than others, I’ll tell you:
I was raised in a family with dogs ever since I was a child. And while I still have a dog today, a rescue Polish Hound from the shelter, my connection with these animals goes far beyond that. Over the years, I have met well over 300 plus breeds and their owners.
For a while, I worked at a custom pet food start-up and oversaw an algorithm that based nutritional needs on exact breed, weight, activity level, health concerns, allergies, and far more. From training to nutrition to temperament and beyond, I’ll have an immediate answer for you.
However, just understand that ANY breed can be the best breed for YOU. This list reflects the breeds most gentlemen today adopt or prefer for things like companionship, hunting, protection, and so on. If you really want a tiny toy-breed Chihuahua that’s your business, there’s nothing unmanly about it.
Remember, it’s not so much about size either (though most men tend to choose large or giant breeds), there are a lot of things to consider like health issues, energy levels, etc. Certain breeds have characteristics you can’t simply train around.
With that said, regardless of what dog breed you choose, with good training and strong leadership, you’ll find the companionship you’re looking for in a pet.
Lastly, please adopt and don’t “buy a best friend.” ALL shelter dogs can be trained beyond their issues if you’re patient and willing enough to help them. Most, if not all, are perfectly normal and wonderful dogs who were simply abandoned and looking for a friend.
Best Dog Breeds for Men
In addition to being intelligent, fiercely loyal, and full of courage, Akitas make bonding with their families a very big deal. This breed was developed centuries ago in Japan, where they were royal guard dogs and used for hunting.
They can be aggressive, but with the proper training and attention, they prove to be very loving family pets. Akitas are excellent guard dogs but are just as comfortable gently roughhousing with their owners.
2. Alaskan Malamute
Known for their striking resemblance to the more popular Husky, the Alaskan Malamute exudes masculinity. Their fierce, wolfish features belie their incredible playfulness.
Make no mistake; these are dogs that require a lot of time to run and exert energy. Originally bred for work, this breed is very affectionate and bonds quickly with their owners.
3. French Bulldog
This amiable breed, with its friendly face and stocky, muscular body may look like a clown, but don’t let the exterior fool you! Bulldogs are very strong, bred for hard work, and lots of outdoor exertion.
They can be sociable and affectionate, provided they are given the opportunity from the get-go. However, this breed appreciates a firm but kind hand and will always prove to be a strong companion.
4. American Staffordshire Terrier / Pitbull
Though often mistaken for aggressive dogs, the American Staffordshire terrier, along with its relation, the Pit Bull, is very gentle and loving. In fact, they were prized “nursery dogs” in the Victorian era! Incredibly attached to their families, this breed is easy to groom and will provide a lifetime of devoted love and attention.
5. Australian Cattle Dog
Before considering adopting a dog of this breed, you need to understand the commitment they need. The Australian Cattle Dog is made for working. Without proper exercise, motivation and competition, they can grow despondent.
However, if you lead an active, rugged lifestyle and want a fiercely loyal companion on your various adventures, here’s your new best friend!
6. Australian Shepherd Dog
This beautiful breed, with its multitude of coloring, is actually not Australian! While the name may suggest so, they were actually bred in the US.
However, like many Australian work dogs, cultivating the outback, they are very energetic and thrive on competition and having jobs to do. They make excellent guard dogs but are very friendly and loving toward their families.
Beagles are amazing family dogs. They’re patient, playful, and gentle around children. However, much like children, they find a way to get into everything.
Adopting a puppy and beginning training immediately is a must when establishing boundaries with this inquisitive breed. However, beagles will reward you with a lifetime of love, fun and boundless energy!
While the Beauceron is not the most popular dog breed out there, they deserve a little more recognition. They may look fierce and are very protective of their family, but with those that they develop a bond with, their gentle spirit and loving nature truly shine.
This is a great breed to consider if you have children but be aware that they do require training and a fair amount of discipline before they’ll truly open up and show their true colors.
9. Belgian Malinois
This German Shepherd lookalike shares more than just its coloring and build with the slightly more popular breed. They’re also popular with police forces and make fantastic guard dogs.
However, they are rarely aggressive unless provoked. Their loyalty and love of family are what make them protective. Be aware. This is a breed that needs constant exercise and work in order to truly thrive.
10. Bernese Mountain Dog
They may look large and imposing but make no mistake – the Bernese Mountain Dog is a true gentle giant! They love affection and attention, and in return, offer dedication and love unlike anything else.
This breed is rarely aggressive. Their energy is more aptly channeled into fun playtime and sleepy cuddles when their energy is runoff, making them perfect for families.
11. Black Russian Terrier
With their curly black coat and open faces, the Black Russian Terrier may seem like an ultra-friendly breed but make no mistake. This breed was cultivated to be a guard dog, and they take their responsibilities seriously!
Like most guard dogs, they are very loyal to their families but do not take kindly to strangers. A firm hand and early socialization are essential if you are considering this beautiful, loving dog.
This well-known tracking and hunting breed has been around for a long time. First bred over a thousand years ago, they still need a lot of exercise and a job to do in order to feel happy.
Just like other hunting dogs, they also need a lot of affection and reassurance that they’re doing a good job! Taking a Bloodhound on a few miles’ run and giving him some extra pats or treats will make this breed love you for life.
13. Border Collie
Border Collies are very smart and very industrious. They were bred for running miles a day herding sheep, and they haven’t forgotten their roots. While the Border Collie isn’t for the lazy man, it does do quite well in a family setting.
However, during the day, this breed needs a large yard to run around in as well as one-on-one playtime to get the stimulation they need.
14. Bull Mastiff
The Bull Mastiff is the perfect poster child for the term “gentle giant.” They are absolutely massive dogs, but also very gentle and loving. They can be very protective of those they love, making them great guard dogs, but are never aggressive toward their families.
They love pets and cuddles and have a belief that they are much smaller and therefore much more manageable than they are!
15. Chesapeake Bay Retriever
This quintessential American breed of dog is known for its clever, curious nature. They will get into absolutely anything if left to their own devices, meaning distractions and toys are a must for the Chesapeake Bay Retriever!
Originally bred to hunt waterfowl, this breed is fantastic for families and makes a great companion for hikes and runs.
16. Doberman Pinscher
Known for their athletic prowess and aggressive nature toward strangers, the Doberman Pinscher makes an excellent guard dog. However, the same loyalty that makes them defend their master also makes them amazing family dogs, provided they are trained and socialized early. They are very clever, so while training is essential, they pick up on cues and commands very easily.
17. Dogue De Bordeaux
Their squat bodies and square heads make this breed look a bit silly, but they are anything but. Much like the Bulldog, this French breed is very active and requires a lot of socialization. They become despondent when on their own, so be sure to have a lot of free time play, run and introduce this breed to others. They are intensely loyal and form bonds easily, so you’ll always have a true companion.
18. German Shepherd
Meet the German Shepherd, the granddaddy of them all when it comes to guard dog breeds for men. When it comes to working dogs, few can match the intelligence, and hardworking nature German Shepherds bring to the table.
From law enforcement to search and rescue, guide and therapy and beyond, if there’s one thing this breed loves, it’s being put to work. German Shepherds are extremely loyal, not to mention, well-respected for their consistent excellence and performance in training.
19. German Wirehaired Pointer
Like many pointers, this breed thrives on having work to do. If you are a hunter, the German Wirehaired Pointer is a perfect companion, known for sniffing out prey and helping their companion track.
Laziness and lack of exercise will cause this breed to be rebellious, so be sure to go for long rambles and provide plenty of playtime to keep this breed happy and well-adjusted.
20. Giant Schnauzer
These dogs are huge. The term “giant” may have tipped you off, but if you adopt one of these dogs as a puppy, you may be unprepared for how quickly they grow. They are also beautiful but very independent.
While they adore attention, it’s essential to keep a firm hand and always stay in the “alpha” role. They are very intelligent, so early training is an absolute must!
21. Great Dane
Though the Great Dane was originally prized for its size and ferocious nature, this breed has since been bred to be a loveable giant. They are as at home playing with silly toys as they are walking regally alongside their human counterparts.
One thing to take into consideration with this breed is their health. Their size makes them susceptible to hip dysplasia as well as other bone diseases.
While the Greyhound may be most commonly associated with racing or a popular bus company, the speed of this breed is actually more suited to recreational runs. They are very fine-boned and gentle animals but need constant exercise.
Let them run off their energy in a park or on daily runs, and this incredibly loving breed will follow you anywhere!
23. Irish Setter
The deep, rich auburn coloring of the Irish Setter is very well known. These dogs are popular for both work and play, though their exuberant nature may be too much for more sedate people to handle.
Similarly, they can be a bit rough around very young children without meaning to be. This energetic breed thrives on a lot of playtime and loves a bit of roughhousing.
24. Labrador Retriever
The Labrador is one of America’s favorite breeds, and it’s pretty easy to see why! With their multitude of beautiful colors and incredibly friendly natures, this breed has worked its way into the family experience.
Intensely loving and very good with children, the Labrador retriever is a perfect pet for a family who enjoys outdoor adventures and regular exercise.
The Newfoundland has its roots in search and rescue. With their webbed paws, they have historically helped drowning sailors find their way back to shore. This ability to serve and eagerness to please makes them ideal for families.
They love roughhousing with adults, but also feel a tenderness toward children that is almost unmatched, making them great for growing up with, and fantastic for family adventures!
26. Norwegian Elkhound
This is quite an ancient breed. Originally prized by the Vikings for their energy and intelligence, the Norwegian Elkhound is also very clever and prescient when it comes to personality. They love their humans unconditionally and always try to make a bad day better with their cheerful moods and playful natures.
27. Pachon Navarro
While the Pachon Navarro may seem introverted, be aware that under their quiet exterior beats a heart yearning to run free. Setting this breed loose in an open field or dog park is essential, as they have energy abound and must express it. With the proper exercise and play, this breed is fun, loving, and very charismatic.
The Plott breed is very independent, and its owner should be, as well. An American breed originally developed for hunting, the Plott still retains quite a few primal instincts. They are not the warm and cuddly “gentle giants” other hunting dogs can be, and even with meticulous training and socialization, they are not great around the young.
These dogs are solitary, and their ideal master is a lone wolf himself.
29. Polish Hound
Meet the Polish Hound, a breed you’ve probably never even heard of, let alone ever seen. As one of the rarer dog breeds in American, you’ll be surprised, perhaps even shocked at their temperament.
Polish Hounds are a remarkably calm, casual, and gentle large dog breed. While they make for the perfect guard dogs, they are still extremely friendly around children and other animals. In a sense, they take some of the best aspects of the German Shepherd, while being far more relaxed and kind-spirited.
30. Rhodesian Ridgeback
The Rhodesian Ridgeback has an interesting history. Originally bred to tame the wild South African fauna, it soon found its place as a farm dog among settlers. These days, it’s a popular breed among those who enjoy hunting and camping due to its loyal nature and attention to intruders in a secluded area.
This dog may not be suited to the family life, unless children are a bit older, or it’s been socialized to them since puppyhood.
Though they may have a reputation for aggression, if treated with respect and handled with gentle firmness, the Rottweiler makes an excellent family pet. They are very loving, loyal and gentle to their families, though also surprised easily and not very good with strangers.
For this breed, early exposure to other dogs and humans is a must, but they’ll reward you with a lifetime of gentle love and protection.
32. Saint Bernard
Though probably best known for their massive amounts of drool, the Saint Bernard originated as a “hospice dog,” saving those in need. These origins are reflected in the giant heart and good nature of this giant breed.
Eager to please and crazy for love, the Saint Bernard is a truly family-oriented, loving dog that will provide a family with a lifetime of affection.
33. Shiba Inu
While the Shiba Inu may not be the biggest dog on the block, he sure packs a lot of attitude! This Japanese breed is the slightly smaller cousin of the Akita, but no less fierce or loyal. They have friendly smiles most of the time but are also fiercely protective of their families, full of tenacious courage that makes them excellent for families.
34. Siberian Husky
As the domesticated breed of dog most closely related to their ancestral wolf, the Siberian Husky is a force to be reckoned with. Incredibly beautiful and very closely resembling the wolf, this breed of dog is prized by those who favor a primal connection with the past.
They are bred to be work dogs, so don’t be surprised if this breed wants to get out and explore more often than others!
35. Sussex Spaniel
Like many spaniels, the Sussex spaniel needs quite a bit of grooming due to its long, wavy coat. However, the love, loyalty, and friendship this breed provides make their upkeep well worth it.
This English breed might be known for being a bit slow, but one whiff of a bird and he’ll perk up almost instantly!
36. Thai Ridgeback
The Thai Ridgeback is a very rare breed of dog in the United States. Originally bred for hunting and being a watchdog, this is not the gentlest of breeds. Single men with an active lifestyle and a firm hand when it comes to training dogs may handle them, but those with families featuring small children may find this breed difficult.
The same goes for those who aren’t familiar with training dogs. However, if you welcome a challenge, are familiar with dogs, and want a loyal companion for life, look no further than the Thai Ridgeback.
The Vizsla, or Hungarian Pointer, is a beautiful breed with a reddish-gold coat and floppy ears. They are very affectionate and enjoy feeling close to their families, making them perfect indoor dogs.
They are also incredibly clever and train easily, though care should be taken to keep them out of messy situations!
This beautiful breed is well-muscled and very obviously used to working hard. Ideal for hunters or farmers, a Weimaraner is also well suited for guys who lead an active lifestyle. It is very important to establish dominance early on with this breed, as they are incredibly independent and used to leading their own pack.
39. American Bulldog
A descendant of the Old English Bulldog, an American Bulldog, is hearty, healthy, loving, loyal, and makes a great family pet. They will guard and protect their owners and are fearless.
They do best with an active family and are incredibly easy to train. However, some bully breeds as this one are often coined as aggressive, so socialization early on is going to be important.
This dog’s strong and stately stature doesn’t mean that it is not an affectionate dog who loves its family. They are easy to train and are very intelligent. They are energetic but with enough exercise can adapt to apartment living.
Boxers prefer more mild climates, however, so dog owners need to be careful when taking them outside in cold or hot weather. They also don’t like to be left home alone for extended periods of time but make great family pets.
Choosing the Right Dog Breed
Before you make any kind of decision, you need to assess your needs and the needs of the dog to ensure that you are making the right decision by bringing them home. A dog makes one of the best companions, and you will quickly find how true it is when people say that they really are man’s best friend.
They offer unconditional love and support to dog owners while also providing fun and entertainment. With the right dog, you can quickly form a forever bond.
When choosing the dog breed for you, it is important to remember that the size of the dog isn’t the only factor. Men do often choose larger breeds of dogs, but you also have to consider other factors like their health issues, energy levels, and other characteristics.
No matter which dog breed you choose, you will need to have a certain amount of patience when it comes to training them and allowing them to adapt to their new home. It is going to be a big transition for both of you, so keep this in mind.
The Best 14 Leather Jackets for Men in 2021
With the winter months (hopefully) dwindling down, it’s time to start planning ahead to a time where we can wear thinner jackets and fewer layers. While it may be tempting to quickly shed your parka and grab for whatever piece of outerwear is nearby, don’t reach for last year’s wardrobe item just yet. Isn’t it time you try something new, like, say, a leather jacket?
Though it may seem all leather jackets are similar, there are actually many different designs and styles that work for different body types and tastes. In this article, we will take a look at the hottest leather jacket trends that have hit the market this season.
1. Aaron Brown Leather Bomber
The Aaron Brown Leather Jacket from The Jacket Maker is an excellent choice for any guy looking for that traditional bomber look. This awesome jacket features a slim cut and ribbed cuffs and waist. It’s made with incredibly tough, yet soft, goatskin leather, making it a great choice for guys that aren’t used to wearing leather jackets.
One of the best things about the Aaron is that it shirks the classic pouch pockets on the lower half of the jacket, opting for two buttoned patch pockets on the chest instead. This design gives it a more streamlined look than most bombers, without taking away from any of the authenticity.
2. Saint Laurent Leather Biker Jacket
There is a reason why leather jackets and bikers are usually associated with one another. Historically, many motorcycle riders have seen a leather jacket as a stylish way to protect themselves, not only from the elements but also from the possibility of a crash. While this may seem hard to believe – it’s not like leather comes with a large amount of padding, after all – leather has actually been shown to offer more protection than your average vinyl jacket or equivalent.
Maybe you’re not hopping on a motorcycle anytime soon, but you can still treat yourself to this biker-inspired Saint Laurent leather jacket. With a price tag surpassing $5,000, it’s certainly our premium pick on this list, but if you’re looking for the leather jacket of a lifetime, you have it right here. This pick is sure to come with the “for life” quality Saint Laurent is particularly known for.
3. Reiss Keith Leather Cafe Racer Jacket
Reiss is a British fashion retailer that’s been around since the 1970s. For the first 30 years of its brand history, it focused solely on men’s fashion before eventually expanding to carry items for women as well. However, the fact high-quality items for men are at the heart of this brand is very apparent through their simple wardrobe staples such as the Keith leather cafe racer jacket.
This Reiss jacket comes at a considerably lower price point than its counterparts, which makes it a pick that packs a lot of value. It’s made from super-soft leather and features a full lining. It’s the perfect choice for anybody who prefers a slim-fit jacket.
4. Lavendard Brown Leather Bike Jacket
The Jacket Maker has something for everyone, including guys that are a bit intimidated by purchasing their first leather jacket. Not only is the Lavendard incredibly affordable, but it also has a really approachable look despite its biker moniker. With open hem cuffs and a tailored fit, it looks great with badass-inspired outfits as well as everyday wear.
The Lavendard is made of real cowhide, which means it will take on a great patina over time. But it might be a bit stiff when you first get it. The more you wear it, the faster it’ll form to your body, break-in, and soften up. The fact that it goes with so many outfits will help speed up that process.
5. Ksubi Capital Leather Jacket
The Capital Leather Jacket from Ksubi comes in 100% authentic leather and is designed to have a biker fit. It’s heavy-duty with a protective interior quilted lining. It also features retro details such as antique zippers.
Kusbi is an Australian fashion label that’s existed since the 1990s. While the brand was originally focused on high-end denim, they’ve expanded their offerings over time to include other textiles such as leather. Items from Ksubi’s collections have been shown at such high-profile events as New York Fashion Week and London Fashion Week, and the company operates a flagship store in New York’s SOHO neighborhood.
6. Acne Studios Off-Centred Zipper Biker Jacket
Swedish fashion powerhouse Acne Studios is well-known for their basic wardrobe pieces, so it makes sense that they would have the classic leather jacket look on lock. We love the way this off-centered jacket packs a punch of personality with its multiple buckles and zippers, but we love even more the way that it does not compromise softness or comfort at the expense of appearance.
This jacket comes with a high-end price tag, but it has the high-end materials to match. It is made of 100% genuine lambskin and comes with an interior lining of 100% viscose. Its unique off-center zip takes its inspiration from street style.
7. Airin G-1 Black and White Leather Jacket
There’s only one way to improve upon a traditional bomber: Add shearling fabric. The Jacket Maker’s Airin G-1 Bomber will have ready to strap into the cockpit, ready to fly over Europe on a midnight air-raid. It has a thick polyester-lined collar as well as ribbed cuffs and waist for a nice, snug fit that keeps the wind at bay.
The Airin is made with real sheepskin, so it’s soft but super durable, making it a great choice for almost any type of casual wear. The dual front pouch pockets are great for a phone and a pair of gloves, so if you’re wearing it on a motorcycle, you’ll have the storage you need.
8. Saturdays NYC Leather Harrington Jacket
If you’re unfamiliar with the brand Saturdays NYC, prepare to fall in love. As a laidback lifestyle brand, Saturdays NYC infuses its love for all things surfer culture in all of its fashion offerings. While primarily known for their loungewear, such as sweats and pullover sweaters, they also happen to make one of the best leather jackets on the market right now.
The leather Harrington jacket features a smooth design and has deep pockets for your convenience. It is made of 100% lambskin leather and features a lining made of polyester. Staying true to its brand’s carefree nature, this jacket features a more relaxed fit than many classic leather jackets.
9. Berluti Piped Venezia Leather Jacket
Unlike the other options we’ve included so far, Berluti is known less for being a fashion brand and more for being a leather maker. Since its inception in the late 19th century, the Paris-based manufacturer has been producing fine leather clothing items and accessories, from belts to bags to jackets.
Berluti’s piped Venezia leather jacket is the apex of luxury leather fashion. Made from a distinctive brown shade, this jacket line has been around since the 1980s – and it’s a style that certainly stands the test of time.
This jacket is made from 100% authentic patinated calfskin leather and features shoulder patches and a buttoned collar. For optimal breathability, the jacket even features ventilation eyelets.
10. Dean Black Leather Biker Jacket
Let’s be honest.. A traditional racing-style biker jacket is about as cool as it gets. With the high band-style collar and heavy-duty zippers on the front of The Jacket Maker’s Dean Leather Biker Jacket, you’re sure to get that badass look.
The Dean is made with 100% real cowhide leather, so it might be a little stiff at first, but it will break in and patina like none other. The Dean features three zippered pockets on the front as well as zippered cuffs, providing that authentic racing jacket-look without killing your bank account.
11. Kingsman Burnished Leather Jacket
Kingsman is a line of high-quality clothing pieces that exists as a collaboration between Mr. Matthew Vaughn, director of the film The King’s Man, and international online fashion retailer MR PORTER. The line features items that are inspired by classic military style and timeless sensibilities.
The burnished leather jacket from the Kingsman line is unique for its length as well as its appearance. It draws direct inspiration from an aviator jacket worn on-screen in The King’s Man, a period piece that takes place in the 1940s. The jacket is made out of sturdy cow leather and buttons made of buffalo horns. It also features two linings – one made of cotton, and one made of viscose.
12. AllSaints Milo Leather Biker Jacket
AllSaints is a British fashion brand from the United Kingdom. Since its founding in the 1990s, it has grown to an international presence that consists of more than 200 retail stores across Europe, North America, and Asia. The brand is mostly focused on fashion for women and men, though it also sells footwear and other accessories. It has primarily seen its popularity grow thanks to its popularity among a celebrity clientele.
AllSaints makes a number of leather jackets, but the Milo biker jacket is definitely one to write home about. This is a jacket that brings out the very best of two very different worlds – including a soft composition and sharp edges – since it is made of tender lamb leather and decorated to the nines with perfectly-placed zippers and buckles. It also has a distinctive slim fit.
13. Golden Bear Sherpa Jacket
San Francisco brand Golden Bear may have its roots in ship workers in the San Francisco Bay since the 1920s, but it’s evolved today to combine both utilitarianism and high-end style. Although not as recognized outside of its native northern California, to know the stylish jackets of Golden Bear is to love them.
The sherpa jacket, in particular, is exquisite. Like any Golden Bear clothing piece, it’s designed to be worn for life, and fortunately, it comes with a style that will be sure to stay in fashion for decades to come, with brown distressed leather and a notable shearling collar that can be detached.
14. Tom Ford Zip-up Leather Jacket
Tom Ford is well-known for their high-end scents and formal clothing, but they have a strong foot in the casual jacket sphere as well. Not that this zip-up leather jacket is something you would wear to a casual house party. Its sleek edges and formal design make it more than suitable for a fancy professional event or night out on the town.
True to its brand’s roots, no attention to detail was spared in the creation of this particular wardrobe piece.

Leather Jacket FAQs
While there are many different unique leather jacket configurations out there, there are four classic syles you should be most aware of. In no particular order, they are the leather bomber jacket (also called aviator jacket), the leather racer jacket (sometimes called moto), the trenchcoat, and the fencer. While bomber jackets and racer jackets tend to be more relaxed, the trenchcoat and the fencer are more dramatic.
If you care for your leather jacket correctly you should have a wardrobe piece that’ll last you a lifetime. Most leather jackets cannot be washed at home and must only be handled professionally. The first step to taking proper care of your jacket is to adhere to this rule.
You should also keep your leather jacket dry as often as possible and keep it away from extreme heat or cold air. If you are not going to be wearing your leather jacket for a period of time, such as during a warm season, then you’ll want to be sure that you are hanging it up correctly – this means out of direct sunlight and in a properly-ventilated area.
Determining how much to pay for a leather jacket is a very personal matter. For an authentic leather jacket, you will probably be paying, at a baseline, $500. However, this price can easily skyrocket from here, depending on the jacket’s materials and manufacturing process.
Some leather jackets can cost as much as $10,000! There is no right or wrong number – it’s instead about the brands you like and the style that you envision for yourself.
