Good Leather Jackets Are Hard to Find, But I Found 24 of Them for Under $200
One of my best purchases ever was a genuine leather jacket I bought for $129 at Nordstrom Rack five years ago. It was hiding underneath mounds of picked-through shirts and coats (which is why I meticulously check each item on the rack when I'm shopping!), but once I spotted it and saw the crazy price tag, I knew it was too good to pass up. That jacket has been with me across continents and coasts, during apartment moves, and almost every PR meeting I took in 2018. Sadly, I lost my beloved jacket during the course of one of those apartment moves, but it's taught me that good, cheap leather jackets aren't actually impossible to find—you just need to know where to look.
Fortunately, I've already done the "looking" part for you. I've browsed through the internet to find 24 amazing, cheap leather jackets all for under $200. From classic, black moto styles to colorful numbers, each is bound to be your ride or die for the season. Keep scrolling to check out them all.
