I'm not going to pretend this isn't a $2700 jean jacket, because it is. However, it's a $2700 Givenchy jean jacket with leather sleeves and an incredibly cool motorcycle-inspired cut. Also, it's lined, so it's probably a bit warmer than the average denim jacket. So it has that going for it.
If you want to go a bit dressier and more tailored, a leather-sleeved trench coat is a great option, and even though this is from Burberry's secondary line, Brit, well, no one does a trench coat like Burberry. The fit and the details—leather piping, big buttons—both look impeccable.
Probably my favorite coat in this post, this Mackage wool coat has an almost blanket-like look—it looks soft and snuggly and warm, and yet the leather sleeves keep it cool. Want.
I'm not going to lie—I'm hopelessly devoted to Rag & Bone. I love pretty much everything they do, including this update of the classic jean jacket. Who knew leather sleeves would make such an impact?
For the value-driven shoppers out there, this Sam Edelman convertible jacket can be worn with its leather sleeves, or without, as a vest. I often find two-in-one looks like this to be kind of clunky, but even zoomed in, I'm having a hard time even detecting where the sleeves detach. A warm welcome to the world of outerwear, Sam Edelman!
Most of these jackets have been on the casual side, but this MICHAEL Michael Kors tweed jacket has a more tailored, work-friendly look. The sleeves are faux leather, but the look is very Kors-chic.
If you like the Burberry coat above, here's a Steve Madden trench for a fraction of the price. The sleeves are faux leather and the buttons are a bit over the top, but at $100, it's a much more budget-friendly option.
Chances are you've seen cool girls all over the city wearing something similar to Rhyme & Echo's Hannah jacket. And with good reason: It's an army jacket, only better. And this version is a very affordable $89.
God knows, I don't need another black blazer. But with a snug double-knit body and faux leather sleeves, the Crosby Street blazer from New York & Company might just tempt me to get another one. It's sedate enough for work but cool enough to wear out at night too, and, at $100, a veritable bargain.
