Lighter than goatskin or cowskin, sheepskin is mostly used for shearling jackets. Shearlings contain a suede surface on one side, and a furry surface on the other, made from the wool of the sheep. The advantage is that you can wear them with either surface out, depending on your mood or the weather. Look for kangaroo or crocodile skin if you prefer an exotic look. Although they are fairly uncommon, you can find kangaroo or crocodile skin, which will make you stand out by their unique and exotic texture, but will cost much more than cow or lambskin.
Kangaroo skin is much thinner and tougher than cow leather, and crocodile skin has large rectangular tile patterns. Figure out your measurements before shopping.
Use a measuring tape to find your shoulder, sleeve, chest, waist, and torso measurements. Extend the tape from the joint where your shoulder meets your arm to the other joint. Let your arm fall naturally, and measure from the joint of your shoulder to the bottom joint of your thumb.
Find where your chest is the widest—usually right underneath your arm and across your breasts—and measure the circumference, making sure the tape is aligned in a straight line.
Similar to the chest, measure at the widest point in a straight line. Measure from the base of your neck to your belt line. Try on many different leather jackets, if possible. Pay attention to sleeve length.
The sleeves on any typical jacket should not extend past your actual wrist line; otherwise, the jacket may look too small or too large for your frame.
Make sure the length of the jacket ends at your waistline. This length will accentuate your frame regardless of the cut you choose. Long jackets such as dusters or trench coats, on the other hand, may cause you to look shapeless. Find a jacket that embraces your shoulders while providing room. Similar to any piece of clothing, the leather jacket you choose should fit your shoulders perfectly—not too tight or too loose—and should not hang or droop.
The best quality leather is full-grain and that will be reflected in its price as well. Make sure the leather doesn't smell like plastic or chemicals, as this is an indicator of faux leather.
Check its softness; high-quality leather will feel silky e. Also pay attention to the edges; if they're blue or seem to be painted, that's a sign for bad tanning.

Tips Go for top grain or full grain leather for increased quality and durability, but be aware that its price will reflect this.
You should also consider buying a jacket with reflectors that allows other motorists to see you on the road, with built-in air vents for warm weather riding, or one that contains a thick, removable lining for winter months. Consider what combos you would wear the leather jacket with. Jeans and a t-shirt might be better off with a casual bomber jacket rather than an elegant lambskin jacket.
