Leather jackets can be found in various textures. Different texture adds extra appeal to the outfit and is fun to wear. Different textures also enhance the styles of leather jackets. Leather retains its look and feel for many years.
Most leather jackets are made from cowhide leather. This leather is durable, tough, dirt and water resistant. Motorcycle leather jackets are made using this kind of leather. Sheep skin leather is also used to design motorcycle leather jackets, but this leather is more elegant and softer. Bison skin has a natural green pattern that makes it ideal for military styled jackets. Aviator leather jackets are made from goatskin which has a pebble grain feel. Lambskin is used for making luxurious, soft, light weight and elegant leather jackets. Ostrich skin is very tough, durable and flexible. Pigskin is very versatile in nature, has a lightweight pattern that produces various textures. Shearling is the softer side of sheep hides. These are light weight and very soft. Shearling jackets are very warm. Sheep skin is the sheep hide the wool attached. The wool can be used in jacket linings or as outer layer to give similar look of fur jackets. Leather jackets made from sheep skin are the warmest and are perfect for the winter.
