The Alternative Uses of Leather Vest for Men


You got to admit that the vest is one of the most underappreciated clothing articles. In case you have been living under a rock, and you do not know what it is, it is basically a clothing item that is sleeveless and is worn and covers the upper body of the wearer. However, leather vest for men is much more complicated than what that definition suggests. It is available in many different materials out of which we will be talking about leather here.

Donning one comes along with many questions such as should I wear a tie with it? Which color would look best with what outfit? Which type goes with the formal outfit and which one with the casual one? Can it get better than The Jurrasic World’s Chris Pratt’s Leather Vest?

Do not worry as we have you covered with this guide of ours.

I will be covering some of the best-looking leather vests and how you can style them for a better-looking leather vest outfit for men.

Motorcycle Vest with Jeans

The key to wearing a motorcycle vest with jeans is first and foremost to consider its sizing. It has to fit you well without looking slouchy. Secondly, you have to determine what your goal is when coming up with your outfit, is it to get a really casual look when on a biking cruise or do you want a semi-formal look?

If you want the former then you have to follow some principles to get that ‘laid back’ look on your bike ride, like unbuttoning the last button or zipper, getting a more bold-looking vest, etc.

However, for the latter, you would want one with a little washed-outfit color like the one in the picture above. Furthermore, both the vest and the pants should be tailored to fit you nicely and to give you that neat look that is required in semi-business settings.

You can go with dark blue denim as well as black and even with mid-blue denim since all these colors are suitable, also make sure your pants are not baggy or too slim as it will ruin the semi-formal look.

The Western Look

The cowboy is a symbol of bravery and a unique icon of Northern America. Now we often see people portraying the cowboy or western look. However, that look is impossible to do without a real leather vest for men.

I’d say, usual cowboy movies tend to have the best Western looks. We can see that leather vests don’t have to be complex or anything. As you can see for yourself from the picture provided, a simple black-colored leather one is all it takes to execute the Western look phenomenally.

However, what you wear alongside it is paramount. The shirt, pants, boots, and most importantly, the hat have to be an exact match for the cowboy look.

Vests for Wedding

Ah, a wedding! A prestigious event loved by all and yet notorious for being a burden regarding the confusion it creates amidst masses who do not know what to wear. Most would tell you that the same formal-themed suit that you wore for your meetings is the best for your wedding. But that is ridiculous; yes it is viable, but not recommended.

The formal three-piece suit creates a serious tone which isn’t a great thing to have at weddings. The difference between the two is that this outfit has more eye-catching colors and this wedding outfit is also set up entirely in the shades of a single color. The vest here is different from the formal one as it has to be darker in shades.

Formal Brown Leather Vest

The leather vest for men used here is best for formal settings such as going to the office, a conference, a meeting, etc as seen in Batman vs Superman as Ben Affleck’s Blue Vest.

This can be worn to weddings, but we would recommend another outfit that is more appropriate for marriages. Here every item of clothing has little variations in color as seen in the picture and complements the leather vest beautifully.

This is the principle you have to follow when doing any formal dressing with a vest. It has to be slightly lighter while the shirt should be white; decide the tie on the basis of the color you have chosen. This combination will make sure that the star of the outfit is the leather vest and it shines the most for any occasion.

The Casual Leather Vest Outfit for Men

There will be times when you would want to go across the street for a cup of coffee or just meet up with your friends and colleagues. For these hangouts, you need to know how to wear a vest casually, like the one pictured above. There are no strict rules or regulations to follow with regard to the color, cloth type, or any of that gibberish.

Just pop into one with versatile qualities, like being black, brown, or distressed, and not having too much of a serious tone. One that I like is this Walking Dead Daryl Dixon Leather Vest which is versatile and is also erring on the casual side.

The vest you will buy also does not have to be too stylish; a simple one will do nicely as it is already getting the spotlight. It is vital that the shirt underneath fits you flawlessly if you want this to work correctly.

The Punk Style Leather Vest

Now, these are products that you do not see every day. This particular type of vest is also called the cut-off. At the very first glance, you would recognize it as seen by the members of the punk culture. Therefore, this one might not be for everyone, and we are not blaming you. However, the look it gives you will evidently surprise you.

Punk or not, this piece of the outfit has been seen as a symbol of beauty on and off in history. Bikers with a fine sense of fashion have seen rocking in it, sometimes with another upper wear, but most of the time these vests are worn as they are. You wouldn’t know what you like until you tried it; why wait any longer then?

And last, but surely not least, are the costume looks which you can opt for a leather vest for men. An uncountable number of actors have worn these vests as well as actresses in the movies which you can impersonate.

Chris Patt in The Jurassic World, Peter Dinklage in The Game of Thrones, Ben Affleck in Batman vs. Superman, etc. are some of the many examples. The main reason for the use of these products is because these items are something that is unique and different from the natural pant-shirt combination.

For a styling reference, you can see Chris Pratt nail the Owen Grady look in the above picture. This look will inspire the true adventurer in you and you might find some dinosaurs in the process. So, don’t wait around any longer if you want to adopt a new look from a television series or a movie.


In conclusion, I truly hope that this guide is descriptive enough to familiarize you all with the leather vest for men. I guess I have evidently covered a wide range of discussions related to leather vests for men.
