The UK… We’re best known for our unique sarcasm, local pubs, and apparent tea drinking and crumpet eating. We would love to say that we’re more than this, but right now, we don’t think we are. Especially for us, BODA SKINS, being from the rainy city of Manchester, we’re used to braving the elements for usually, all but two weeks of the year. We live our lives counting the minutes down, raring, and waiting to slap the factor 50 on for a day filled with cold ciders and 16-degree heat.
Year upon year, it’s honestly a gamble with how our summer is going to look… For us Brits, casting our minds back to Summer ‘18 with England apparently ‘bringing football home’, it really hasn’t been better than that since. This time around, it’s been nothing but rain, winds, and even some snow, packed in with sitting in cold beer gardens in our groups of six.
What we’re trying to say is, right now, it’s too warm for the winter coat, but it’s definitely not t-shirt weather - we call this ‘Perfect Leather Weather’. Below, we have picked out some of the best BODA jackets to keep you feeling just about right in this strange season of weather we’ve go
We recently introduced our brand new gold hardware across a collection of our leathers. Of course, the Classic Biker Gold is one that we had to recommend for the Perfect Leather Weather… I mean, just look at it.
The jacket is the perfect one for the spring transition and has been crafted from 100% premium polished Nappa sheepskin leather. It’s also lined with quilted cotton, standing as a look that strives to combine our signature leather with a streamlined look.
Wear this jacket in rain, wind, or shine, it’ll still work. Buckles and zip features are on the sleeves, giving extra room for layering, so you never have to worry about not being able to wear this masterpiece.
The Voyager Shearling is an evolution of one of our favourite leathers here at BODA. It has been handcrafted from soft premium sheepskin and backed with the highest quality premium shearling on the collar and front lapels. This piece gives you the perfect juxtaposition of biker-streetwear combined with that luxury edge.
The jacket, of course, features our signature biker panelling along with silver branded hardware, functional zip pockets, quilted cotton lining, and inner security pockets. The beauty of this jacket is that there is no need to wash it - simply shake it to evade any dust or dirt. Also, due to the premium nature of this product, there may be differences from one jacket to another, making each jacket unique to its wearer.
But, as a whole, this jacket sits perfectly in the middle between the colder weather and warmer conditions. Being comfortably snug as well as lightweight, our Voyager Shearling is the pinnacle of Perfect Leather Weather.
Strictly for the ladies, here’s one to resolve any wardrobe malfunctions… Our Jaws Gold has been designed simply to ensure it can be worn with any style of outfit for all of the in-between weather. Including buckles on the cuff, edge of the body, and collar, ribbed detailing can be spotted on the shoulder, along with the dipped hem on the back panel. The interior is lined with premium satin, integrated to complement the interior phone and cardholder pockets.
As a lightweight leather, this jacket is also deceivably warmer in cooler conditions. But, don’t worry, buckle features are included on the sleeves to make room for extra layering should you ever need to add a jumper under your BODA.
We would definitely recommend this one if you’re looking to keep it smart casual. This is your everyday jacket ready for the Leather Weather.
We have very recently announced our brand new Retro Brown colourway across a couple of our leathers, with our Classic Biker being one of them. We would recommend this jacket for the Leather Weather shenanigans as this new colour brings a perfect balance of warmth and cold to the forefront of this fan-favourite style.
Handcrafted from 100% premium polished Nappa Lambs Leather, this jacket has also been lined with quilted cotton stretch for added comfort, keeping you pleasantly cosy during the lottery of weather we’re getting. Picking a jacket for the current climate in the UK has never been so easy…
Of course, you have the option to layer up with this jacket, we would recommend one of our 530 sweatshirts to go with this - you can have a look here.
Here’s one if you don’t fancy slipping into some leather… Our Oilers Varsity is the perfect pick. This jacket takes inspiration from a group of bikers (The Crazy 8’s) who took on a crazy journey across America. They were spotted in their varsity jackets through this feat, so why not wear yours for the social occasions?
This jacket is based on the willingness to capture the moment, and that’s all we’re trying to do, right?
Within the design, contrasting stripes can be seen on the cuffs and collar, while it also introduces premium brushed viscose, along with wool melton with Italian Lambskin Leather sleeves and detailing. This varsity silhouette is one of the most sought-after designs from our latest Libertatem collection and is for sure tipped as one of the perfect items for smart-casual attire.
