We all have our own definitions of an "investment piece." Yet, no matter how impressive your bank account, we believe a leather jacket — real or faux — qualifies as much. An investment piece is not necessarily measured by its price, but rather by its longevity. And, ask anyone who already owns an awesome moto number: The style is as sartorially faithful as man's best friend. So, with long-term commitments in mind, we sent the e-commerce aggregators at Rank & Style in search for the very best one we could buy.
The site pulls together information based on hype, popularity, and reviews, and this time the BLK DNM's Motorcycle Jacket with Quilted Stripes came out on top. According to Rank & Style, the belted-at-the-bottom, striped-shoulder-detail topper earns top marks for being a bestseller. And, like our other favorite styles, we're sure this one does exactly what leather jackets are famous for: making any outfit instantly look cooler and edgier, but never in a contrived way. Pair it with your fall plaid, layer it over your coziest track pants, use it to replace your summer blazer — whatever you choose, you're covered.
However, the one caveat is that the best leather moto according to math will also set you back nearly $1,000. Again, your personal investment is up to you. But, if you're ready to make the purchase, at least you can do it with some science on your side.
