    hello all,

    I have been looking into buying a brown leather jacket, found one that fit well and the price is in my budget.

    My question as I approach purchasing it, is will it go well with my everyday outfits or are they hard to match?

    I typically wear dark wash jeans, although I have light and black jeans as well. My shorts tend to stick towards the blacks, greys,and earthy green tones. And for shoes I primarily wear black or tan Allen edmond Normandy boots, white vans or various wing tips from black or brown. I’ll try and attach some pictures of my boots as I think that’s gonna be the hardest part to pair with the jacket. The jacket is the stock photo along with stock photos of the boots and an in person picture of my tan Normandy boots that I’m wearing today.


    Thanks for any advice.

    no issues wearing a brown leather jacket with those types of outfits. It will go fine.

    one caveat - I'm NOT a fan of the style in the photo - an untucked shirt that is visible below the bottom of the jacket. Sorry, just don't like it - a jacket should cover your shirt.

    I agree with johng70, the jacket should cover the undershirt as it should not be visible. Everything should work to highlight the jacket. Brown is a good choice because it pairs well with a variety of colors. Also, the weathered look is very helpful for the style versatility--easily dress up or down. Great choice!
