Shopping for a Brown Leather Motorcycle Jacket

There’s a reason why a brown leather motorcycle jacket remains a classic and a favorite decades after the first one was introduced. It simply has a dashing look to it that goes with many colors, looks mature and says you mean business. In fact, a brown biker jacket is a wonderful option for both male and female riders.

And guess what? Today, a brown leather motorcycle jacket is not just something you wear while you’re zooming down the road. Today, people wear them effectively as causal attire. And it’s a fashion statement and status symbol that works.

Brown is a color that goes back as far as the leather jacket itself. Although they’ve been around longer than that, leather jackets first became really popular in the early 1950s, thanks to movie star Marlon Brando–who looked cool, by any standards, in his trademark leather. Other movie stars followed, and the leather motorcycle jacket has been popular ever since. In fact, in had a substantial boost in the 1970s, thanks to leather-wearing “Fonzie” on the hit sitcom, “Happy Days.”

A brown leather jacket, for a man, goes beyond just protection. It’s a way of demonstrating his manliness and a touch of class. They allow him to demonstrate a confident personality and attitude.

Still, the most important of any leather biker jacket, brown or any other color, is protection. It must protect the rider against the elements (thus, keeping out the rain and snow). And more importantly, it protects you against the asphalt. The best motorcycle jackets will have enough padding and will be tough enough that if you wreck your bike, the jacket, and not your skin, will take the punishment. From a shopper’s point of view, what this means is that, more than color or appearance, you need to make sure that the jacket will offer you adequate protection.

Of course, the brown leather biker’s jacket is not just for men. Women like them too. While there are many other colors for women than there are for men, a lot of ladies choose to go with classic brown, because it ‘s sophisticated and can be worn in any season.

The brown biker’s jacket looks especially nice if you have it embossed (The embossing is more visible on brown than lighter colors). Popular embossing patterns include crocodile, alligator and snake-skin. Other options available, in both mens and womens jackets, are jackets with or without collars, those with open collars, those with a fur lining, those with snaps or zippers (and in some cases, Velcro), and others.

So where do you go to buy your brown leather motorcycle jacket? Although you can find them locally at biker-supply shops, a better option is to buy online. There are many reasons for this, including the lack of overhead costs, the ability to shop without leaving home, and a greater variety from which to choose. But however you get the jacket, you can be assured of protecting yourself in a classy way, both when you’re riding your Yamaha or Honda and when you’re just walking down the street.
