Whether it is a classic car or just your regular convertible if you have an open top car that you take to events you will be wanting a warm and luxurious jacket to shield you from the extremities as it does get pretty cold tootling along the road at even 30 to 50 miles especially when considering the general British weather.

There is nothing quite like sheepskin to keep you warm and shielded from the cold. The classic flying jacket is an old-time favourite that everyone loves and dates back to the WWII bomber pilots who wore these sheepskin jackets to protect them from the cold at high altitudes as well as for the general outdoors jackets when not flying. The Flying jacket is now an iconic timeless style that has kept true to its origins for over 70 years.

We still have some great offers on sheepskin coats and sheepskin flying jackets so whatever your style we have a wide range of designs and styles to choose from. Hurry as some styles are already ‘sold out’ or on ‘limited stock’ alert !

Many of our customers have enjoyed the benefit of a made to measure / custom fit option across many of our classic range styles. Unfortunately, due to rising labour costs we will be ceasing this service from June 2017.  

So if you have special fit requirements such as a longer length jacket or coat, or simply a wider fit cut or an overall petite fit size then we would urge you to order sooner rather than later and as much in advance of the 31st May 2017 as possible.

From 31st May 2017 onwards  we will only be able to offer a general alterations service which will cover general requirements such as shortening sleeve lengths, narrowing shoulder widths, as well as reducing chest and waist widths slightly without impacting on the integrity of the garment.  Unfortunately with an alterations service it is not possible to re-size jacket lengths with zip fronts and some button front designs may have certain limitations of how much can be taken off the length.  With regards to reducing torso widths the position of pockets on the front of the jacket as well as other certain detailing will pre-determining the level and the extent of the adjustment, so we don’t have the same level of flexibility as we do with the made to measure option.

 So for custom fit sized leather jackets …don’t delay and order as much before 31st of May 2017 as possible. Remember it is mainly the classic range jackets that we have this option available on and the ‘made to measure’ option will be listed in the size drop down menu on the full jacket page.

  

There is nothing quite like sheepskin to keep you warm and shielded from the cold. The classic flying jacket is an old-time favourite that everyone loves and which dates back to the WWII bomber pilot sheepskin jackets worn by those courageous individuals to protect them from the cold at high altitudes whilst flying. The RAF pilots of the time loved the look and feel of the leather and soft velvety wool so much that they wore the jackets for the general outdoors and they wore it with great pride as well as pleasure.


The classic sheepskin flying jacket is now an iconic timeless style that has kept true to its origins for over 70 years and is still very much coveted for the very same reasons it was originally chosen by the RAF : comfort, warmth and durability.


Nowaday’s the old faithful sheepskin jacket is still very much adored and cherished by many as it is ideal for winter and early spring wear.  However a newer use for the sheepskin jacket is for open top car driving as well as vintage car racing.


A sheepskin is always a fantastic investment as with a little care they will last many, many years and will in addition never date whatever happens with fashion.

With warmest wishes from all at UK LJ.  

Well another autumn has officially begun and you can now feel the chill in the air and especially early morning and late evenings. So that makes it a perfect time to get out those light sweaters and jackets out that you may have stored away. So if your old favourite jacket is looking a bit tired or you're in need of a updated look then a good leather jacket does work wonders.

New generation nappa leather jackets offer softness as well all-day comfort as they are beautifully light and an era away from those heavy weight stiff jackets that can for some feel like straight-jacket at times. The majority of us would say the most desirable leather is always soft and supple and fits like a glove from day one and is great for general wear.  However, there are those of us that prefer the hardier weight and feel of cow hide, which you can beat for heavy duty wear. We run jackets in both gorgeous soft nappa leather as well as harder wearing cow hide.

Now is also a great time to update your autumn and winter wardrobe whilst there are still some great price offers on and reductions available.

With the new spring season coming upon us now is good time to get that new leather jacket that you have been promising yourself. 

The blazer jacket has been making resurgence and it is understandable as it offers strong classic attire for smart casual wear as well as being well suited for wear with any style of jeans to moleskin trousers, or a pair of slacks or cords. The leather blazer has an added advantage that it mixes and matches well with a wider variety of materials and textures than cloth blazers. There are a wide range of blazer styles and cuts to choose from and these rae mainly as follows:

 

Slim Fit Blazers

This is a 2 button single breast blazer available in black or brown leather which is more tapered into the waist and also in shorter length of 26.5 inches (67cm) excluding the collar.

Double Vented Tailored Fit Blazers

The modern version of a 2 button single breast blazer available in black, brown and tan leather. This is has side slits at the back and the blazer length is about 30 inches (76cm) excluding the collar.

Single Vent Blazers

The very classic 2 button single breast blazer in a comfort fit.

3 Button Blazers

Another timeless classic , these button slightly higher and are straight backed and without any vents at the rear and offer a comfort fit.

Custom Tailored Blazers

In addition to the above we also have a general alterations service as well as made to measure blazer option to accommodate shorter and longer sleeve and or blazer lengths as well as wider or smaller fittings. 

Here's a side by side comparison of the different styles (left to right): slim fit , tailored double vent, single vent, 3 button nubuck.

The New Year is always a great time to freshen-up and so we have up-dated our website site and hope you like it. It should be a little easier to use and with bigger sized pictures and a few new features that we hope you will like.  Any suggestions are always welcome.

Checkout the latest offers now as some of sheepskin styles now sold out, so remember to grab it while it's there as we do receive e-mails from customers who have waited just that bit too long and some styles once sold out might not be repeated.

 

So the big day is almost upon us! Have you got the turkey? Little Jimmy’s PlayStation Game? Aunty Sue’s box of Scottish shortbread? The list goes on…

Christmas is a time to be spent with our nearest and dearest, filling ourselves till we burst, recycling wrapping paper well into the New Year and surprising ourselves by the amount of Cadbury's Quality Street we can eat in one sitting whilst simultaneously watching the Home Alone franchise and debating how the parents really forgot about their child.

But in all seriousness, the team at UK Leather Jackets would like to say a great big thank you to all our customers, old and new, for their continued support throughout the year and we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

 

With the frosty chill of winter firmly upon us. It may be a good time to start thinking about getting ready your wardrobe winter ready. We stock superior quality and very luxurious Toscana gilets, jackets and coats, at more affordable prices.

A Toscana gilet is something elegant to throw on in a hurry, whether it’s picking the kids up from school in jeans, or out for the night in your most expensive heels. A Toscana coat is something really special, a timeless piece for your wardrobe that will give you a taste of luxury for many years to come. If you start thinking about this now you will have plenty of time to find the right style, colour and look for you, so you’ll soon be wishing the summer to end.


Sheepskin jackets, inspired by pilots and immortalised by style icons, are an essential piece to have ready for winter. Great for men and women, a well-made sheepskin jacket will be a friend to you for many years to come. Warm and windproof, it’s not only practical but timelessly stylish, it’s the kind of jacket that was around 100 years ago, and will still be around in another 100 years.

 

 

We liked Kylie Jenner’s dress at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas. It seems like black leather and gold is making a come-back this year. We are spotting a lot of gold zips on leather jackets along the high street. We have the Purdy and Jet styles up on our range at the moment; both are black with gold zips and fasteners.

Jet Biker Jacket - 2-styles-in-1 biker with gold zips. The jacket starts off as a. ross zip style, but the detachable front panel when removed converts the jacket into a straight zip. So you can wear the jacket  on the next days and people will think you have  adifefrent jacket on!

Purdy Biker Jacket - cross zip style with gold zips anda  short stand up mandarin style collar.
