When you climb on your bike, you know that, as important as looking good is, it's even more important to wear gear that keeps you safe in case of a crash. Fortunately for you, the Aether x Spidi Eclipse Motorcycle Jacket accomplishes both flawlessly, giving you great style and uncompromising protection. Designed by Aether and constructed by Spidi, it features beautiful premium leather work, yarn-dyed cotton lining, box quilting, and armor in the elbows, shoulders, and back. It sports a snug fit that's still flexible and lightweight enough that it doesn't get in your way while riding, all while giving you every bit the defense you need against the road.
We can only guess that the Patagonia Houdini Jacket gets its name from its uncanny ability to disappear into its own small zippered chest pocket — pulling a vanishing act that would make its namesake proud. For all its ability to compress into a tiny, packable pouch, this jacket isn't without its utility, featuring a durable, waterproof, and light nylon shell, that still lets your body breathe while blocking the wind and cold. Drawstrings at the hem and hood coupled with half elastic cuffs let you really get snugly when the mercury drops, while reflective logos on the front and back mean you can be seen when you need to.
Despite the name, you don't need to live on a farm to get plenty of use out of this Levi's Barn Coat ($200). Built from a 55/45 nylon/cotton blend, this versatile olive jacket was inspired by military uniforms and traditional workwear, which explains its ability to look good with both flannels, button downs, and plain old t-shirts. Several pockets take care of your gadget-transport needs, while velcro cuffs keep the wind out, a drawstring in the waist keeps it tight to your body, and elbow pads keep things from getting too formal.
It might not be Tom Ford, but we're pretty sure Jay-Z wouldn't complain about you sporting this Shawn Carter x Rick Owens Mollino Crocodile Jacket ($58,000). The result of a collaboration between the two creatives, this jacket is made from actual crocodile, and features a funnel collar with off-center zipper, long, slim-cut arms, zippered cuffs, another zippered pocket on the left sleeve, and a shoulder-to-shoulder zipper on the back that provides access to a hidden pouch. And should you feel bad about dropping over $50K on a single piece of outerwear, know that 100% of the proceeds will go to the Shawn Carter Foundation, which provides scholarships to deserving low-income students.
