ok seriously, i was joking about supporting the ostrich leather jacket.
The 2 jackets you posted are weird as well.
jacket 1 - cannot decide if it is a jacket or vest. also whats up with those buttons/rhine stones near the shoulder area. I would never wear that and would make fun of someone that does.
jacket 2 - a bit better but why all the colors? it looks like a mess similar to those jackets with all the nascar advertisements on it, might as well add advertisements to it.
Check this out, closer to what you want but looks way better

What are you looking for in a leather jacket? Casual, fashionable or something rough to protect you while riding a bike? Additionally, how much do you want to spend?
There are a lot of styleforum favorites such as MMM 5 zip, RO intarsia or stooges. Good brands like Temple of Jawnz, Schott NYC, new affiliate vendor Thurston Bros
looks cool. There are a lot of good things out there better than what you posted. There more distressed options like incarnation, backlash, BORIS BIDJAN SABERI, a1923, etc.
For me the choice would be between classic look VS distressed look. Once i know that, i can make a solid choice.
EDIT: folks memeber Namor is selling an awesome jacket here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/351305/new-perfecto-brand-by-schott-nyc-burgundy-aviator-bomber-995-size-large
, $350 for a Shcott is ridiculously low, the only reason its that low is because Barnyes did not know what they marked down. see http://www.schottnyc.com
and compare the prices.
EDIT2: guys these are just my opinions/suggestions, if you dont agree with them thats fine, not trying to push my tastes on others.Edited by sinnedk - 8/25/13 at 3:11pm
