Whether you’re the kind of guy who meticulously plans his outfits or you prefer to improvise based on whatever isn’t buried in your hamper, there’s one article of clothing that’ll guarantee a sartorial confidence boost: the leather jacket. (A kickass pair of cowboy boots is definitely a close second.) With a leather jacket on your back, the mundane experiences of everyday life suddenly become moments to remember. You’ll be swaggering down the street instead of strolling. Sidling up to the bar for a top-shelf cocktail instead of the usual swill.
