I personally see the biker jacket as more geared for either smart casual or streetwear. I think with formal attire, it’s trying a little too hard. The Racer jacket I think can get away with that better.

cafe racer is versatile to wear..biker jacket is for bikers only

Hi Ashley! So for the biker jacket, for the hardware and circular studs on the lapel your thoughts are preferable towards both a matte gunmetal and black being good looks? And if you had to pick one, you'd pick black? I'm really taking your thoughts into account, to find myself a leather jacket so please respond when you get the chance I'm a big fan.

lmao came here after watching your latest video about older guys in leather jackets. It's funny she mentions that "cafe racer" jacket because I feel the same way about that stupid piece near the neck that buttons closed when the jacket is zipped up. I hate that piece with a passion and i wish it was never invented.

Love your videos in general, but I’m going to echo the sentiments of the comments you’re getting about cafe racer, it is by far the best leather jacket stylistically, especially for body types like your husband (same as mine), but as you know style is about confidence and attitude, so if someone feels better in the biker jacket, they should rock that instead, but all the same rules apply between the biker and cafe racer.

I may be a bit biased but I feel like if you don’t ride a motorcycle and have a helmet by your side and you choose to wear these jackets you just look ridiculous.

I like the looks of the cafe racer. I don't know why you couldn't get one in a slimmer cut, but I guess I'm watching this before I start looking at jackets seriously. And how are you going to put that in the title if you completely avoid it?

You guys have zero knowledge regarding leather jackets. Black zippers/buttons on black jackets make them look cheap and not the other way around.

Would disagree. The biker jacket is a far harder look to pull off than the cafe racer. That jacket is more rock and roll, long hair, skinny guy look. Guys like your fiancé can’t pull it off. There is a style like the cafe racer but with a stand collar I would say is the most forgiving style and pretty much all guys can pull that one off. The aviator bomber style with shearing collar is another tough one to pull off. Would say it’s more for the bigger muscular guys.
Private Private (6 months ago)
The Cafe Racer is probably the most versatile and accessible leather jacket. If you get a poorly constructed bloated jacket then of course it's going to square your body too much. You picked ugly cafe racing jackets for examples but then picked very slim, low profile jackets for the other styles. Puffy bomber jackets and biker jackets with belts and too many zippers can look absolutely awful.
Andrew Carnell (6 months ago)
Do you think that a full leather varsity jacket and a bomber jacket are interchangeable? The only difference being buttons instead of a zip.
Carlo De la Vera (7 months ago)
2:19 right after dissing the cafe jacket you put an picture of someone wearing one in the wrong category also the biker jacket shouldn't be subtle...wearing a jacket like that is a statement smh

I have a brown cafe racer jacket that fits like a glove. But I’m athletic with a somewhat muscular build so maybe skinny guys can’t pull it off? It’s gotten me soooo many compliments. I think I want a black leather biker style jacket next though.
Jersey Paul (9 months ago)
They are cutting leather jackets smaller. I am an XL and a good quality XL fits me perfectly. I went to Macy's and needed a 2XL. Cheap!

Ok the photo you showed is a terrible example, put the cafe racer on a muscular person or someone that really his body type suits the cafe racer jacket and you will see how good that jacket looks on the person. Leather jacket or any jacket there are people will look good on them and there are people will look bad on them, it all depends on the body type and how well the jacket fits.
Zareli Noise (9 months ago)
When you said "bad boy" and Dorian was styling the jacket I almost spit my coffee. No offense but Dorian is like the polar opposite of a bad boy, plus that look with perfect no-mess haircut, the all buttoned up shirt, the non-distress slim jeans, comes out like a Mormon trying to be edgy.
Ian (10 months ago)
Im buying a biker jacket and imo metal hardware is the way to go its a rock'n'roll piece why anyone would try to subdue that is beyond me.
Nobarcos66 (10 months ago)
Sorry Dorian but in my opinion you cannot pull off leather jackets stick to the suits my friend that's where you shine the most
Nobarcos66 (10 months ago)
You're crazy you're complaining about a small little strap on the neck when a biker jacket has straps hanging all over the place zippers all over the place very distracting especially if you're trying to be dapper. I have to disagree strongly with you on this one

What cafe racer jackets are you buying? You do realise that if you're not an actual motorcyclist, you don't need to buy a jacket with padding and armour right? I think leather looks a bit too edgy, I prefer the same style jackets in Melton wool

Why do you hate Cafe Racer/Moto jacket? Put on Biker jacket on the guy at 1:14 and he will look much worse. It is the guy that has bad looks but and weird way of standing which makes him look weird. Also, as pointed out previously in comments, the picture at 2:20 is a Cafe Racer/Moto Jacket and not a Biker as you have mentioned in the video.
Joseph Miles (1 year ago)
Guys Dorian is a good looking guy! If I didn't know he was an entrepreneur I'd think he was a model. The leather jackets work on him, biker jackets can be worn by non bikers...smh. Just like you can wear a bomber jacket without having been a WW2 bomber pilot.
kronos77 (1 year ago)
You are way out of your element here. You show little knowledge of different styles of leather jackets. Your opinions are yours and you are entitled to them but you are coming from a fashion perspective. You like stylized leather jackets not genuine historically correct or functional pieces. Basically, there are two categories of leathers, the fashion jackets and the real stuff. You can pick one without downing the other as they are different animals entirely.

Says she won't comment on Café Racer jackets and then goes on to talk about "Biker" jackets while showing a picture of Justin Theroux wearing the quintessential Café Racer jacket... wut?? Plus Café Racer jackets ARE biker jackets, so what the hell...

ambiva (1 year ago)
Totally disagree, all top of the line biker jackets are shinny, calf or lambskin, reflect of the leather quality (McQ, Versace, Burberry, etc.), one can tell from surface texture. You pay what you get for, so even both cheap and expensive ones are shiny, they look like from different world.

Is it normal for a sheepskin biker jacket to have zippers that are warped/curvy? For example, zipped up or not, the zippers curl and are not straight
Pavka Korchagin (1 year ago)
It all depends of the exact model. Sometimes it's almost normal, nothing to worry about.
Rhys Seddon (1 year ago)
I disagree, i agree matt colours are best however the silver metal is a must, and to dress with a biker jacket go more neutral colours and look at the classic way to wear them and just experiment

Hardware with biker jacket should be a gsx1000 or zx10

Cafe racers with shorter throat tabs and no breast pockets are super sleek. Great alternative you think the waist elastic on bombers breaks up a clean silhouette. And I hate elastic cuffs, they get all warm and itchy
pattgsm (1 year ago)
Bomber, Harrington, jacket all day, then trucker. Great points about the subtle tips about the biker jacket. I think biker jackets look great in media but in real life I think, "meh... somebody's trying." I also think that Tom Cruise is the only guy that can pulls off the racer jacket flawlessly. Great vid. Missed these types of vids.

Hey Dorian, nice shirt. What brand is that?
Malcolm Stewart (1 year ago)
I really dont like café racer style jackets, but yet, amusingly enough, I have one plum colour café racer style jacket that I have been getting compliments on since high-school (good quality jackets seem to last forever.) and yet, typically, I would agree that they aren't typically a great choice of jacket. Side note: Awesome videos. Love watching them, seen a dozen or so of them today alone (Sundays are always slow days for me), each video is just as good as the last. Keep being awesome! Cheers!

Ashley, I wish that folks would stop categorizing all look alike flight jackets as Bomber jackets. There are several different types, the G1 Navy jacket like I'm wearing in my picture, the Air Force A2 which has a leather collar, the MA1 which is what the version you have in your video. What was really the "bomber jacket" was the B3 sheepskin-lined jacket that B17 bomber crews wore on missions over Germany at high altitudes because they had no heating system.
AWxInc (1 year ago)
+Mark Asher gotta use the terms the clothing designers use otherwise it'll get confusing really quickly. But yes, you're technically correct.
