If you’ve been looking for a new leather jacket, then chances are that you’ve been looking online. We don’t blame you - there are so many great reasons that you should be looking online for a brand new jacket rather than crawling through store after store!
Perhaps you’re stuck on which jacket you should buy - after all, there is a fantastic range of high-quality leather jackets listed online, such as this brown biker jacket or this luxurious bomber jacket. If you can’t decide, why not consult one of our thorough buyer’s guides?
Maybe you’ve already decided which jacket you’d like to show off - there’s just one problem. Where the hell do you buy one from?
That’s why we’ve put this together: feel free to browse our in-depth guide on why you should buy your leather jacket online
1. Better range
When you visit a shop, you’re often bound by certain restrictions. Maybe the store only has a limited amount of jackets in the same style. Perhaps you’ll find the perfect jacket, only to realize that they don’t have it in your size! The store might even be messy, untidy or difficult to browse.
If you do choose to buy online, you can completely eliminate these risks and gain access to a much better range of high-quality jackets. You’ll be able to quickly and easily see everything the store has to offer, without having to individually try on every single jacket, just to see if they have the right size in stock!
2. Better prices
In most cases, online stores will have MUCH better prices than in-store. This might be because of lower operating costs (website don’t have to pay the same overheads that shops do!), frequent sales or just better pricing from the manufacturer.
When you shop online, you can benefit from much lower costs - this can be a huge perk, especially when you’re spending $300+ on a fancy new leather jacket!
Shopping online generally means that you will need to pay for delivery costs, but don’t worry - even with this applied, buying online usually works out to be cheaper than in-store.
As an added benefit, you won’t need to pay for petrol costs or parking!
Many websites have quality online stores, but this might actually be a good thing…
3. Easily compare prices
The internet, and online shops in general, makes it incredibly easy to compare prices. Every jacket will have different specifications, manufacturing processes and as a result, different prices. Some stores will even charge you more for no reason other to fatten their pockets!
When you shop online, you’ll be able to quickly and easily compare prices between multiple stores, which can help you to make an informed decision. You’ll also be able to gain a rough idea of the quality, based on the rough price along with what materials are used!
4. More styles
Online stores will generally offer many more styles than in-store locations. When you visit a physical shop, you’ll only have a limited range of options; in some situations, such as when you already know exactly what you want, this might be ideal. Most users, however, will like to compare different styles to see what suits them best.
Online vendors will generally stock multiple styles of leather jackets, so you don’t need to look exclusively for biker jackets or bomber jackets!
Some types of leather jackets, such as cafe racer or flight styles, aren’t as common as others. You’ll have a much harder time finding one of these in an actual shop (unless it’s a specialist or vintage shop!) than you would with a quick google search.
5. Saves time
One of the biggest perks of buying jackets online is that it can save you a LOT of extra time! You don’t need to waste your day searching through countless different stores, seemingly getting nowhere. Instead, you can find exactly what you’re looking for with just the click of a button.
Online shopping is a great way to double down on your time - you can search through offers on your morning commute or even on your work break! You don’t need to schedule a day out shopping, which, let’s be honest, will inevitably end up being boring, stressful and probably unsuccessful.
You can put this newfound surplus of extra time to good use by showing off your brand new leather jacket!
6. Less competition
As physical shops only have a limited amount of stock, there is generally competition amongst buyers for specific items. This is especially true for desirable items (such as great-looking, high-quality leather jackets) or anything currently on sale - everyone loves a bargain!
Instead of having to fight through crowds of people just to find one jacket, you should just buy yours online! You’ll be able to quickly and easily see what’s already in stock, without having to beat others to the front of the queue.
Less competition means a much easier, stress-free experience, too.
Online shopping presents a couple of concerns, too. You can’t try the jacket on before you buy it, and you can’t see the product before you commit. This might leave you wary - a leather jacket can be a huge financial investment, and you’ll want to make sure that you’re getting your money’s worth.
Most online stores have great refund policies if you’re not completely satisfied with the purchase. If you receive your jacket and realize you’ve gotten a size too big, or that the stitching isn’t what you thought it would be, don’t worry - all you’ll need to do is contact the company to arrange a quick and easy exchange.
By returning a purchase online or through the post, you can beat the crowds again! You won’t need to battle your way to the shops, avoiding yet another unnecessary journey!
We’re so happy with our incredible products that we’re certain that you will be too, so hopefully, you’ll never need to return your Brando & McQueen jacket!
