Don't wear dress trousers or casual trousers - if not in suit then in jeans.

For leather stuff - hard to go past Gianni Versace Couture or Versace V2 Classic for style and qulaity. They've been making leather jackets for over 20 years. Otherwise a simple Gucci jacket in a blazer style. I find leather jackets are on the whole very dull and boring in style (saw the new Brioni ones available in Sydney and they are hideous - strictly for old men.). I suspect choices will be dictated by how old u r.

You should try to see the newer pieces offered by Zegna/Loro Piana/Hermes/Seraphin............Nothing old about them at all. Sublime styling, excellent fit (not for the large of belly), in my opinion, I don't think older men look particularly flattering in them. I have seen numerous older (read fatter) Americans/Aussies/Poms while I was in Italy, trying on the hip new styles, and they plainly looked ludicrous..
