Leather Jackets for Men in their Forties

What style or brand of leather jacket is apt for a guy in his 40s? Well, we rounded up some in-their-40s male celebrities who are often noted for their sense of style to see what they are wearing.

We begin with teen heartthrob-turned-rocker hunk Jared Leto. Those of you who’d like to go for a rocker look might want to check out the Burberry Prorsum Studded Leather Jacket like the one the 40-year-old Jared is wearing. This biker jacket is from the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2011 RTW collection and it “has a collar and press-stud fastening wide notched lapels, long sleeves with zips at cuffs, zip-fastening pockets at sleeve and sides, a buckle-fastening belt at waist, two press-stud fastening belt loops, an asymmetric zip fastening through front and is fully lined”.

Next up in our 40s Guy in Leather Jacket is 44-year-old Daniel Craig who’s seen in the pic below wearing an Armani Collezioni Lambskin Leather Jacket. This fab jacket is “detailed with suede trim at the outer sleeves and raglan shoulder seams for subtle textural contrast.”

And what brand is the 48-year-old Brad Pitt wearing in the next picture below? His outfit is a Carol Christian Poell Overlock Leather Jacket from the label’s Fall/Winter 2007-2008 Menswear Collection. This much sought-after jacket has a very slim cut and a tailored look and is made of calf leather “which has been treated to give a more worn feel although still looking very clean”.

Meantime, some of you might be able to ID the cool brown leather jacket the 43-year-old Will Smith is wearing below. We know his shoes is a Louboutin Rantus Sneakers but we’re clueless about the label of his jacket.

Another outfit we failed to ID is the jacket cute Boston boy Matt Damon is wearing below. Would you believe the cute schoolboy in School Ties is now 41 years old?

Some of you might also be able to ID Denzel Washington’s leather jacket below. [Update: Turns out that Denzel is no longer in his 40s but is actually 57 years old. Wow. He’s really in great shape coz we believed him to be much younger than his actual age. Way to go, Denzel!]
