Leather. Jackets. Need I say more? Not only does it add an instant edgy-cool factor to every guy’s wardrobe, but it’s one of 2012’s hottest menswear trends.
Obviously, these Pittsburgh natives are embracing their inner James Dean and breaking out reinvented versions of the motorcycle jacket.
We love Point Park student Jordan Serra’s use of layering with his dark red sweatshirt and contrasting scarf. The two balance out his striking motorcycle jacket, complete with metal snaps, zippers, and side pockets. As for the almond-colored beanie? Just another menswear trend we can’t seem to get enough of.
You may also wonder why we are obsessed with Kyle Hupman’s brown bomber jacket. Not only does it have that rugged-worn look, adding to the jacket’s personality, but it has a story to tell as well. Kyle’s jacket is a throwback from his father’s college years, a.k.a. we are thrilled he updated this vintage find with a fun bright t-shirt.
So, to all you Pittsburgh men out there leaning towards the leather jacket trend… don’t think, just do!
