yeah so a few months ago I decided to buy a $500 leather jacket, and ever since I get snarky comments from guys but yet the girls seem to think it's attractive (ie. eying me when I walk down the hall lol)... I don't understand it. Like even buddies of my buddies say snarky things behind me when I pass like "he thinks he's cool", "he thinks he's hard", etc. I am just wondering, what do you think? I like it, I think it looks good on me and personally I don't care about the comments... you don't spend $500 on something and only wear it out a few times.
You know, I feel pretty goddamn confident with my leather jacket on. Ever since I started wearing it, guys seem to be more intimidated by me... and it boosts my confidence when I am with the girl I am seeing as it makes her feel protected.
It is more than likely jealousy.Leather jackets look great on a guy,in my opinion and really put an edge to their style.They could either be jealous of the attention you are getting or they know how much you paid for that jacket and they envy your ability to afford such things.Judging by the information in your question you are obviously confident in yourself-yet another thing to cause jealousy.When people are insecure they rag on others to raise their own self-esteem but in the long run,only end up dragging themselves down further.If all the comments ever do start to get you down just remember that.Good luck!
Some can't pull it off, and some wear it completely wrong, But if the girls are paying attention, you must be ok. If you feel confident, by all means, wear it. Don't let us tell you whether to wear it or not. Damn right the losers are intimidated, you probably look sexy in it. :))
A lot of the appeal depends on the guy himself. Not everyone can pull off a leather jacket - and, likewise, not every outfit would complement it. But that's the girl in me talking. :) I find them very attractive on most men. While I could argue that, yeah, sometimes it makes a guy look arrogant/vain/conceited/etc. if your personality is at least tolerable then you have nothing to worry about! Snarky comments from your guy friends just mean they're jealous. ;P
I loooooove leather jackets on guys, but a lot of girls hate them bc of the animal cruelty factor. Im not sure that I could justify spending $500 on one but they do look hot and if you want one you should go for it
i love leather. I bought brown leather boots for $350 and leather handbag for $230.
you know, leather and fur can make you look like a snob. especially if you have the attitude that goes along with it lol as long as you don't wear skinny jeans, a ton of hair wax or eyeliner its hottt :)
if you wear it with fitted straight leg dark jeans fitted hat nice belt shiney chain white tee and some hot ass sneakers you will b lookin sexy trust me I see boys dress like that and I'm like dammmmnnn
Wear it there hot! I wear one all the time I got three of um an every time I see a guy in one I'm like "ow wed look good together" ;) plus they last forever! So its not a waist a money well if you use it lol
Who cares what guys think there not the ones you are trying to impress anyways girls like guys to wear leather jackets cause it makes them look like a bad boy and to be honest every girl wants a bad boy so for get the dudes there just jealous!
Leather jackets are the hottest thing EVER! Just seeing a guy in a leather jacket turns me on xDDD...u know what's even more hot? Leather pants! Or, long hair on guys...:O...grrr...it attracts the wildest girls ;)...
Could be several reasons, I used to get the same sort of things... A lot of guys think having something fashionable is 'gay' and a lot of guys just seem to pick on that in a somewhat homophobic manner. Jealousy is also a common one, if you own something expensive someone will often make you out to be a snob, they never assume its a one off buy. The comment about thinking you are trying to be cool or a hard man, is generally based from all those high school films where the cool kids and bullys wear leather jackets, in a way its like Grease or even just Fonze from happy days, I think a lot of guys can be quick to judge someone. Girls like whatever they think looks good, they don't automatically stereotype you for what you wear because of something unrelated. It probably has to do with the difference in male and female thinking patterns.
My question would be; are you wearing it to make yourself feel secure, or because you actually like the jacket enough to spend $500 dollars on it? Why would you spend $500 on a jacket anyway? I got mine for $12, and it provides the exact same influence as described in your question.
Guys will always be "snarky". It's politics, really. Take a look at girls and tell me that they aren't just as bad. Not only that, but it is partially your fault as well. Wearing a leather jacket all the time is the same as wearing sunglasses when you're indoors. You're kinda fishing for comments, whether they're good or bad.
Ok guys say sh*t behind your back not because they are jealous (like every girl on here imagines for no reason) but because anyone with any experience with men who wear leather jackets knows that 99% of the time the guy doesn't just like leather jackets. He's either an asshole, or a guy trying too hard to seem like an asshole just so he can get chicks, and yes they buy leather jackets specifically for that purpose. I call it leather jacket syndrome, and someone's probably going to make it scientific law sometime soon.
I'll do an update on my own answer... I used to have comments about my appearance shouted at me by guys, and girls actually liked my dress sense. So anytime I thought about a guy insulting me I'd think to myself, 'Just as well I'm not looking to chatup guys then, isn't it?'.
What others think about you is not your business. As long as you Like it and the girls like it. Thats all that matters... and as for those that talk behind your back. Fuck em, they bitches. Let them say it to your face then tell those bitches to line up then bitch slap em.
