A lot of readers have asked me about men’s faux leather biker jackets, they think that they don’t exist!
It’s because faux leather is associated with the vegan movement and a particular way of dressing and using upholstery, but what most people don’t know is that many people suffer from leather allergies and some bikers may even choose to wear faux leather jackets because they are cheaper.
Nevertheless, today, I would like to tell you about the things to look for when selecting and choosing men’s faux leather biker jackets.
The first one is the faux leather fabric itself.
This is the mistake most people are going to commit whenever they are selecting men’s faux leather biker jackets: they are going to look for the cheapest ones!
Needless to tell you that when you look for the cheapest quality products, you are going to get the cheapest quality fabrics as well!
And let me remind you that faux leather is as resistant as real leather, at least when you are talking about affordable and quality faux leather fabrics!
This is the main reason why I always advise my readers to only get the best quality faux leather biker jackets, no matter what the cost is because when you buy something which is made out of high-quality materials and fabrics, it’s going to last you a lot longer.
What I mean by quality faux leather fabric is its thickness and cotton backing!
If you don’t know any of these terms, please don’t be alarmed, I’m going to explain everything to you.
Cotton backing simply means a lining of fiber which is going to support the faux leather fabric, in other words, it’s going to give it flexibility, strength, resistance and durability as well.
Again, when trying to buy a men’s faux leather biker jacket, don’t look for a thin and comfortable jacket, it’s going to deteriorate and lose its value and strength very quickly, look for medium thickness in the fabric and don’t forget the cotton backing, your faux leather fabric has to have some fibers in it in order to support it and keep it resistant.
The second thing to look for is different pieces!
In other words, if the faux leather biker jacket is made of many different pieces and cuts, then, it’s very low quality!
The more pieces a jacket has, the less quality it is!
It means that it’s made out of shoots and different cuts that were recycled from other objects, maybe even upholstery making!
So, avoid such jackets at all costs, they are not going to last you a long time.
Let me tell you now about a very important thing to always have in mind when selecting faux leather biker jackets: size!
With real leather, you can wear your own size, for example, if you are an extra-large person, you can buy an extra-large jacket, it will stretch with time and use, however, with faux leather, you need to understand that it’s not as flexible and as elastic as real leather, this means that if you buy an extra-large jacket and you wear something with it, underneath it that is, it’s going to put stress and tension in the fiber and the fabric as well and this is going to cause the jacket to start cracking and even losing its “bad boy” look!
My advice is to always shop for at least one extra size, it’s the best thing you can do in order to avoid any bad things happening to your jacket.
