Leather coats/jackets in Winter

I have sort of a dumb question. Are leather coats warm or just fashionable? Do they get too stiff in harsh winters? I'm in the market for a new coat, but I want it to be warm AND nice looking. No puffers or LL Bean/Land's End models. (I've had the same big green coat from LLB since 1995 and it still works wonderfully.) Anyway, I was considering leather since I've been wearing the heck out of my pleather jacket and didn't know if they were ideal beyond Fall.

Hey T ... here's my experience. When it gets beyond 40 F the leather jackets do nothing for me, especially when there is a windchill factor. But I'm a total wimp when it comes to cold

Hubby on the other hand wears his leather jacket over a sweater and he feels fine (and he tells me to man up) (I know he's cold though too )

Knowing where you live, I doubt they will be a winter staple. I use mine pretty regularly for a fall/spring or warm winter jacket. I have a pretty mediumweight one and it rarely sees the light of day when it snows/ices (I don't want it to get ruined)

Thank you! Maybe I'll look for a cute Spring leather jacket. I have a black pleather jacket from Express that I love, but sometimes it feels plastic-y to me lol.

I think it depends on how long it is and what it's lined with. Most of the more fashionable ones only have a thin lining. I have one that is quilt lined, but weighs a ton...looks more biker, and couldn't be warmer! Good luck with your hunt T!

What is up with these posts?

I think they are warm & not just fashionable for me least. Also, decent leather doesn't get hard & stiff imo

I love leather jackets & wish I could wear them year around.

I meant comments, not posts.
Also, one of my sentences sounds a bit questionable

Leather jackets are fashionable but I hate them when they start to smell. It's hard to maintain a pleasant smell for them.

I think leather is one of the best choices for winters. It not only offers a great style, but it is warm and comfortable as well.

Not warm enough. You'll need to find a jacket with a very thick and relaxed liner. I have a leather bomber jacket that is wool on the inside and it has kept me warm through the harshest of winters.

But yeah leather alone will be great for trap some body heat and keeping the basics at bay but you will be quite cold without added lagging.

Leather in cold whether

The best option for cold weather is a shearling leather jacket. They have great thermal properties and do not stiffen in cold weather. Also, if you spray with a water repellant they are great even when it rains. We have a large stock of shearlings, please feel free to take a look designerskins.co.uk

Leather Jackets

Well one thing is for sure that the leather jackets stop the cold air from passing through or in other words they act as wind sheeters, and yes they do help to keep us warm during winters.
