Dad, I want to get a jacket to cover in patches, but I don't know if leather or denim would be better. Got any advice?
DENIM JACKET PROS: Easier to sew patches on (sewing into leather by hand is a garbage time), you can wear it more often without sweating your guts out, easier to work into casual outfits.
DENIM JACKET CONS: If you wear bluejeans a lot, and it’s a blue denim jacket, you run the risk of entering a Canadian tuxedo situation on the reg.
LEATHER JACKET PROS: Look super hot, scare elderly Republicans, be warm without looking like a marshmallow, instantly dope outfit.
LEATHER JACKET CONS: Expensive, almost certainly haunted by a cow ghost, like, just extremely riddled with paranormoo activity, for sure.
CONCLUSION: A black or darker grey denim jacket, if you like the look of them. Some people think that the classic blue denim is essential to the cool trash jacket aesthetic, but I think black can look really good, too. It honestly just depends on what the rest of your clothes are like and how the weather is where you live.
