If you’re looking for a unique, one-of-a-kind look, then there’s nothing better than a red leather jacket - in any style.
But you don’t just want any style, you want the best. And we want you to look your best, too.
That’s why we’ve scoured the web for the best, most affordable red leather jackets for men and put them in one top five list to help you hone in on what you want.
As always, we try to pick out a variety of styles and price points to make sure there’s a little something for everyone.
Yet, as we’re sure you already know, finding a good red leather jacket is pretty tough and, more often than not, a game of luck than anything else.
We’ve tried to take that out of the equation as much as possible but, even so, these choices are bold no matter how you shake it.
Here are our top five red leather jackets for men that are available online right now:
#5 Massachusetts Men's Waxed Leather Maroon Jacket at Film Jackets
This pure, 100% lambskin jacket with a wax finish is sure to make a statement - and how.
The marbled effect on the deep red gives the jacket a worn patina that only the best leather jackets have. In addition to some light metal hardware and utility pockets as well as a thin but comfortable lining, this jacket has a modern, slim cut with a cinched middle via zipper closure. Best of all is the fact that the jacket is rugged enough to be worn outdoors but stylish enough for a night out on the town.
Arriving at $169 USD, it won’t break your budget but it isn’t cheap by any stretch. From its soft, supple leather to its Hollywood action star styling, this jacket is a pure winner.
#4 Shiro Panelled Biker Jacket in Bordeaux at Diesel
The color’s name should tell you everything about this piece: Bordeaux, like the wine, is a refined version of red that is as intoxicating to look at as it is classic to wear.
This red is not some fire-engine red nor is it something akin to orange - it is a classic color that looks good on pretty much anybody. That means it is less daring than some of the other options on this list and, typically, customers looking for a red leather jacket want something out there.
Nonetheless, the panelled shoulders and muted metalwork make this jacket a study in minimalism and quality construction. Made from washed sheepskin, the leather promises to retain its color and look for years to come. But it won’t come cheap: At $698 USD, this jacket is a commitment in terms of both money and style.
#3 Commando – Blood Red Leather Jacket with Nickel Hardware – Classic Fit at Straight to Hell
If you are looking for something that is bold and daring, then look no further than this piece from Straight to Hell which is in nothing less than blood red premium full-grain buffalo napa leather.
Sporting nickel hardware and detailing with a style that is reminiscent of the classic anime Akira, this piece from Straight to Hell is made for biking and extreme use and promises it will last.
That’s a good thing, too, because it isn’t cheap. Coming in at $375 USD, it fits right in the middle on this list but it might be a little too much for some people.
Unlike the L-Shiro, this jacket is a statement piece and it depends on how long you want to make that statement which will determine whether or not that price is acceptable to you. A quilted lining and all the usual suspects when it comes to pocketing makes this jacket’s design “to be expected” which also doesn’t help it that much but doesn’t hurt it, either.
#2 Ionic Red Leather Biker Jacket at The Jacket Maker
We have to admit: If you’re going to get a red leather jacket, then you have to go with a biker jacket.
It’s not that there’s a wrong choice, it’s just that a biker style is always the right choice. And this Ionic Red Leather Biker Jacket from The Jacket Maker is not only the iconic look you want but also, at $200 USD, affordable.
What makes this sheepskin jacket stand out?
A semi-aniline finish along with a bright, true red along with little to no adornment make this a minimalist masterpiece. Don’t let its minimalist look fool you, however.
This jacket has utility plenty of pockets including two discreet breast pockets and the necessary side pockets. In addition, there are two inside pockets and a quilted viscose lining. Straddling the line between pure fashion piece and everyday wear, the Ionic Red Leather Biker Jacket is perfect for the guy that needs to inject some serious style into his wardrobe.
#1 Roland Sands Clash Jacket at Revzilla
This is a serious biker’s jacket for a man that wants a jacket that will last for the rest of his life.
Composed of oiled and waxed top-grain cowhide, this red leather jacket comes with a snap collar, metalwork at the cuffs, and an offset zipper with quilted paneling underneath for a textured appearance. It even has an interior electronics pocket.
There are quilted accents throughout the body of the jacket and a durable mesh lining for the interior pockets. Revzilla even promises that the jacket is primed for aging gracefully and notes that the color will fade somewhat over time in the tradition of the best leather jackets out there.
Arriving at a price of $487 USD, the Roland Sands Clash Jacket is not cheap but it is easily the best red leather jacket for men out on the Internet right now for the price.
