A funny feeling unfolds when you slip your arms into a new leather jacket. It’s not quite other-worldly but is ripe with an almost visceral giddiness. Thanks to cinematic badasses like Arthur Fonzarelli, Danny Zuko, and Stanley Kowalski, leather outerwear gained an undeniable street cred that altered the face of casual menswear forever.

Armani Exchange recently asked me to test-drive a few pieces from their fall collection. I quickly gravitated towards the edgier basics and raw denim – as I am inclined to do – until I spotted this faux leather and wool moto jacket. Slim-fitting and insanely comfortable, this jacket is one of my new fall favorites. Unlike some leather and faux leather jackets that tend to swallow your frame, this A/X jacket employs a bevy of visual contours to accentuate the chest and shoulders. So what do you think? Would you consider this jacket for fall?

I’m sure you’ll ask me, the jeans are from A/X, too. And yes – they’re perfect for those of us in the “small waist, athletic thigh” category.

    Awesome outfit. The leather jacket is classic yet modern. The “moto ribbing” details makes it so modern with all the other details making it a timeless piece.
