We’re all familiar with the fact that leather jackets were initially crafted to keep military men safe from extreme weather conditions, cuts or burns with the extra paddings and inner lining. Later, they became a staple costume for the fashion wardrobes. The reason behind this unmatchable popularity of this piece of the garment is its functionality and an amazing appearance. People might associate leather jackets with freezing cold weather but the truth is, leather jackets are equally useful for summers. The leather simply blocks the wind, however, keeping you warm is mostly dependent on the inner fabric that is used as a lining. Depending on the type of leather and the inner lining, leather apparel can serve you well no matter what the season is.
What temperature is good for a leather jacket?
Leather jackets that are made out of cowhide are usually heavier as well as warmer. On the other hand, the ones that are made from sheepskin are lightweight and can be worn in summers as well. So depending on the type of leather jacket, you can pair it with a sweatshirt and straight trousers in cold weather. Go for a plain t-shirt paired with a sheepskin lightweight leather jacket and denim when the temperature hits 60–62 degrees.
What season to wear leather jackets in?
Leather jacket enthusiasts know that a leather jacket has very little to do with the season. Although, people have always associated leather jackets with cold weather, however, leather apparel goes perfectly well with a plain shirt in breezy summer evenings. Lightweight leather jackets are loved by most people for the same reason. They are airy which makes them ideal for all seasons. If you’re a biker and have an adventurous bone in your body, summer is the best time for that and biker jackets in LJS collection would perfectly align with your plans.
One of the most important things that determine which weather this jacket is perfect for is the inner lining of the garment. Heavier leather jacket made out of cowhide mostly contains thick fabric as an inner lining i.e. quilted or polyester lining. On the other hand, the satin lining is airy and gives a light & breezy vibe.
Types of the inner lining
If you want an extremely warm jacket to wear in freezing cold weather, go for a jacket that is made with cowhide and contains fur lining. For a more light and airy inner lining, go for the satin.
