Here at Primer, we’re pretty flexible. We believe that style is personal and individual, and there aren’t really any absolutes.
We don’t post, endorse, or recommend fake (or “faux,” if you want to be fancy) leather jackets. They aren’t durable, and for something that often looks and feels cheap, they often cost far too much to be considered an affordable alternative.
So that means we spend a fair amount of time thinking about, looking for, and testing out the best real leather jackets.
The go-to for the stylish set in the know is UK-based AllSaints. They're renowned for the sophisticated yet casual vibe that helps you feel effortlessly cool without succumbing to trendiness.
And now, everything–from slim-cut chino shorts to perfectly slouchy sweatshirts to yes, some iconic leather jackets–is on sale for up to 50% off retail.
Snap up a few anything-but-basic tees, hoodies, and henleys, but definitely don’t miss the classic biker, bomber, and moto jackets.
Whatever you decide on, you really can’t go wrong–the buttery-soft leather wears beautifully, so your jacket of choice will just get better with age. And unlike bulkier jackets you can only wear a few weeks out of the year, these are the perfect not-too-heavy-not-too-light weight for wearing alone in fall or spring, or layering over a sweater or hoodie when you need some extra warmth.
In addition to standing for creativity and quality, AllSaints also stands up for fair labor. The brand only works with ethical suppliers and vendors, and supports Not For Sale, a non-profit that works to protects people from human trafficking and provides those rescued from exploitation with educational and economic opportunities. So know that you’re putting your money toward a good cause, not just a good look.
