The men of Victorian suburbs are back in style with leather coats.
The city has been a hotbed of fashion for decades and this year was a big season for the city’s leather-covered men.
“There was a lot of interest, I think people were looking at the leather coats and it just kind of went from there,” said resident and Leather Club chairman Bill Wood.
“It’s not that long ago when they used to be called horse shoes or leather boots and that sort of thing but now it’s more about leather coats.”
It is an industry that has been around for decades.
There are now more than 30 leather coat shops in Melbourne, and Mr Wood says people love the sport.
“People love it,” he said.
“They love the feel of it, the way it feels when they put it on.”
I think it’s something you’ve got to wear every day and you can’t be too picky about what you wear.
“The Leather Club, which was founded in the 1960s, started in the inner west of Melbourne and has since grown to cover the inner north, the CBD and the north of Melbourne.”
The leather coat is the most popular style of coat for men in Melbourne,” Mr Wood said.
Mr Wood says he has seen a shift in interest from men who wear suits and tie-dye to those who wear a leather coat.”
A lot of it is down to the fact that they like the look of it,” Mr Woods said.
He says the style has also been catching on with women, who like the idea of wearing leather on their bodies.”
Women, like most men, like the way the coat is worn, they like it a little bit, they get into it, they want to be a part of it.
“So they’re becoming more into it,” He said.
The Leather Jacket was designed by a leather jacket expert, known for his work in leather jackets and jackets.
The leather jacket is made of a material called leather that is stretched on the outside of the jacket, with a layer of leather inside.
The jacket is covered with a leather collar that keeps it in place.
“For the women, they just like the shape of it because it’s a little different to what they’re used to,” Mr Smith said.
For Mr Wood, the style is also popular with women.
“We’ve seen women come in to buy the jackets, they love the way they feel,” he says.
“Some of them have even been wearing them for years.”
For those who have never worn a leather-coated jacket, they can get some ideas from the classic style, which includes the collar, the lining, the stitching and the buttons.
