If you are anything like me, you love a good leather jacket. There is no other article of clothing that provides that incredible feeling when you try it on. From its weight to its thickness, a good leather jacket is a type of clothing that has an imposing presence. In a way, a black leather jacket of this kind is something of a modern-day armor. However, as you may very well know, there is nothing as comfortable as a well-fitting leather jacket. Unfortunately, however, there is a downside to leather jackets: They tend to be on the expensive side. Being a smart shopper, however, I decided to do some research and figure out what the best reasonably-priced options are. Whatever your preference are, whether it's a leather bomber jacket, a moto jacket, or something else, there is something for you. As a result, here is my list of the top 8 best affordable mens leather jackets on the market.

Top 8 Best Affordable Mens Leather Jackets

1. H&M EDITION Leather Biker Jacket

To kick off this list, we present you a black leather jacket that doubles as a tribute to the origins of this unmistakable men's clothing item.

The H&M EDITION Leather Jacket's classic and traditional styling includes very retro diagonal zips at the front of the jacket. These include both chest and side pockets that give the jacket a look that's alluring and menacing at the same time.

To create a look that's even more badass, the H&M EDITION Leather Biker Jacket also features genuine zips at the cuffs. As if this wasn't enough to bring you back to the golden years of motorcycle jackets, this model sports incredibly authentic-looking notched lapels with subtle but gorgeous suede details.

Made of pure leather, the main body of the jacket is nicely thick and heavy, a characteristic that makes it a pleasure to wear. Going for only $299, this black leather jacket is a great option if you are into that full-on retro look.

2. Zara Leather Jacket

While the H&M EDITION Leather Biker Jacket has more of an old-school biker feel, this Zara Leather Jacket evokes the punk era very nicely. As a matter of fact, looking like something Joey Ramone would wear in the heyday of punk rock, this leather jacket is a direct throwback to the 70s era.

This leather jacket features various dynamic-looking zippers, a snap front lapel collar, an adjustable waist with buckled strap and even shoulder pads with snap button tabs. As if that didn't rock hard enough, the jacket also features a classic punk-era-styled chest pocket with zip fastening.

Complex and full of contrast, there is no doubt this leather jacket is the perfect choice for achieving that edgy, dangerous rock and roll look. Despite its great quality, however, the Zara Leather Jacket will only set you back 299 bucks.

3. Cole Haan Washed Leather Moto Jacket

Moving away from the classic black leather jackets, the Cole Haan Washed Leather Moto Jacket is a fantastic option for those who enjoy the natural, country look a bit more. Despite the obvious nod to the more rugged type of leather jackets, the Cole Haan Washed Leather Moto Jacket also has a distinctly modern edge to its look.

Apart from its modern, boldly-cut lines, this edginess comes from the leather jacket's color: A grayish shade of brown provides the piece of clothing with an elegant dangerousness that makes this jacket stand out among others.

As a bonus, this shade of brown looks better and better with age, achieving depth and detailing as the years go by. Amazingly, when it's on sale, this leather jacket will only run you around 250 dollars.

4. Barney's Originals Real Leather Biker Jacket

Barney's Originals Real Leather Biker Jacket stands out among the rest due to its modern and luxurious finish.

Full of intricate detailing, this tan leather jacket can be used within a wide range of styles. Perhaps the most eye-catching feature this piece has is a zip-locked collar that is as high as it is imposing. In addition to the angular cuts of its structure, this is a risky choice in design that pays off abundantly when dynamism is taken into account.

Made of 100% leather, this is definitely a no-nonsense piece of designer clothing. Sleek, straightforward and splendorous, this is definitely a leather jacket that you should take seriously when looking for your next wardrobe upgrade.

Perhaps most impressive, however, is the price of this fantastic item. At only 174 dollars, Barney's Originals Real Leather Biker Jacket is definitely a worthy choice.

5. Barney's New York Quilted Leather Jacket

The next leather jacket on this list represents another all-around hit for Barney's. We are talking about an elegant and stylish piece that's just rugged and heavy enough to have that coveted extra touch of manliness.

Made from genuine brown leather, this jacket features a quilted lining that provides equal amounts of stylishness and comfort. Made of 85% polyester and 15% cotton, this lining is soft and provides extra warmth.

Much like some of the previously described jacket models, this one has plenty of useful pockets. However, unlike those of the other models, the pockets of the Barney's New York Quilted Leather Jacket are very subtle and discrete.

With practicality in mind, this jacket can be fastened with either a zip or poppers. Going for only 170 dollars, this is undoubtedly one of the best genuine leather jackets on the market.

6. Topman Leather Biker Jacket

Whether you own a motorcycle or not, the Topman Leather Biker Jacket will give you the motorcycle-owner look. In order to have that effect, it features an angular style with diagonal cuts and zippers that give it all the edginess it needs to have the authentic biker style.

Apart from looking fantastic, this asymmetric zip fastening system makes the Topman Leather Biker Jacket very comfortable, practical and ultimately wearable. As if the zippers and the lapels weren't retro enough, this jacket has all sorts of fantastic details that work as nods to the biker culture, including a very old-school coin pocket located on the front.

Another great feature that this jacket has is its tight construction. This, in addition to the high quality of its materials, makes it extremely durable and resistant to daily wear and tear. Additionally, it gives it a nice weight that makes it feel even more genuine. Despite being 100% leather, this fantastic jacket is machine washable.

7. ASOS Leather Flight Jacket With Borg in Tan

There is no doubt that, in fashion, the line between casual style and edginess is a blurry one. However, as it's clearly shown by leather jackets such as the ASOS Leather Flight Jacket With Borg in Tan, that doesn't have to be a bad thing.

Designed in London, this jacket has a Mediterranean feel that is as unique as it is elegant. As if the overall design wasn't special enough on its own, the jacket's Borg collar gives it an eye-catching allure that is hard to find in any other piece of designer clothing.

Much like most of the jackets on this list, this one makes an emphasis on practicality that is reflected in its generous provision of pockets. However, the pockets on this jacket are especially comfy and inviting.

Made of 100% real leather and featuring a midnight suede finish, this jacket looks and feels incredibly expensive. Luckily, however, it's actually very affordable, going for the shockingly low amount of $128.50.

8. Mango Leather Biker Jacket

Last but definitely not least, this Mango model is an easy-going, casual version of the classic biker leather jacket.

Despite its straightforward cuts, the Mango Leather Biker Jacket can be worn in combination with a range of styles that stretches from retro to skater-chic. As a matter of fact, this leather jacket's round neck with snap makes it a no-brainer for using in combination with a hoodie.

Opposite from many of the previous models featured in this article, this Mango leather jacket features a single classically-slanted pocket on the chest area. Despite the rigidity of its exterior, this Mango item fits like a glove due to its ergonomic lining.

As a bonus, the simplicity of its design gives it an adaptability to different body types that is rare in the world of quality leather jackets. Comfortable, versatile and cool, this is a great choice for men who like to mix things up but want to keep things simple at the same time.
