Sales of leather jackets have accelerated online, which is no surprise due the products versatility and ability to survive in the fashion circuit.

Over history, the jacket was accustomed with bikers, rock stars and punks. They were also frequently used for military aviator and police uniforms, which were versions aimed for protection rather than fashion. By the 20th Century, it had gained iconic status and became in demand among British and American youth. This was mainly thanks to the film and television business who at the time, portrayed well liked, trendy characters wearing them.

It was originally worn and designed for men but is now a crucial fashion item for both men and women over the world, with the only differences between them mostly in relation to fit and style.

They are commonly made in darkened colours, with black and brown leather jackets being the most commonly seen. However, the jacket has been produced in a variety of different versions and styled in diverse ways depending on its function and also, the subculture it has been adopted by.

There are immense differences between those produced for protection and those for clothing. The safety types are heavier, thicker and are designed with durability and strength in mind, whereas the fashionable types are sometimes very light constructions, and designed to be pleasing to the eye or make a statement. Whatever its purpose, the jackets have never really gone out of fashion, still it has been reinterpreted and altered depending on current social and fashion trends.

The leather jacket has always been a big seller during the winter months. However, they are now also selling well throughout the year, even in the warmer seasons, with the cropped style being a favourite choice for women. This is a result of the fashionable and light weight versions and is especially the case in the UK, and other countries where the seasons are not very distinct and the summer months are not extremely hot.
