Rising temperatures and sunny skies can only mean one thing… it’s leather jacket season! Whether it be sleek and tailored or over-sized and moto-styled, there’s something undeniably cool and effortless about a leather jacket – putting one on just feels good. Lucky for you, if you’re on the hunt for a new one, the city has a number of different options, whatever your budget. Take a look at the where to buy a leather jacket in Toronto below:
If you’ve been paying attention to the blog, you may have heard that UK-based brand, AllSaints, just opened their first Canadian Outlet store at Toronto Premium Outlets! For those of you looking to score a deal on an otherwise expensive jacket, this is a good place to start as the brand is known for their high-quality men and women’s biker jackets.
Montreal-based brand Rudsak has been around for years and for good reason. Not only are their men and women’s leather jackets stylish, but they also scream quality. Better yet, if you’re planning on investing in a quality piece, like a leather jacket, why not keep it local and support a Canadian company. Prices start at around $600.
Another Montreal-based brand worth checking out for a leather jacket is none other than Mackage. Long time player in past Toronto fashion weeks, you can count on their jackets being stylish and up with the latest trends. While slightly more expensive, starting at around $690, we think it’s totally worth it in the long run.
If you haven’t heard of m0851 yet, the Montreal-based brand recently opened a third GTA location at the CF Eaton Centre, and has two other locations in Yorkville and Bayview Village. Here you can find a wide range of men and women’s leather goods and clothing including jackets. Although, they don’t carry your “typical” leather jacket, so we suggest going to m0851 only if you’re looking for something more unconventional.
If you frequent the Queen West neighbourhood then we’re sure you’re familiar with Doc’s Leathers – the grungy looking hole in the wall store with the scary biker mannequin out front. While the storefront may be intimidating to some, you’re definitely getting the real deal at Docs, as they specifically cater to the motorcycle crowd, plus it’s at a fraction of the cost (prices start at around $350).
It’s that time of the year – warehouse sale season – and the Nordstrom Warehouse Sale is currently in full swing. Open all week and all Easter weekend long at the International Centre in Mississauga, the Nordstrom Warehouse Sale is good for those who don’t have something super specific in mind. There’s no guarantee what styles you might find, but you’ll definitely be scoring big as designer is up to 80% off!
If your budget for a new leather jacket isn’t as lucrative, don’t fret! Black Market Vintage has been a go-to destination in Toronto for vintage and alternative clothing for years now. You can definitely count on finding a badass vintage jacket here (maybe not the first time, but keep checking) and not to mention the prices are almost always more than budget-friendly.
Another great place to look for leather jackets are Winners and Marshalls stores. Similar to the Nordstrom Warehouse Sale, you never know what you’ll find, but it’s almost always awesome! Take a look at the best Winners and Marshalls stores here and here.
Last but not least, we can’t leave out consignment stores! There are plenty in Toronto, ranging from secondhand stores offering fast fashion, to designer-only. Whatever your budget is you can always count on getting an incredible deal at a consignment store, although similar to Black Market Vintage and Winners/Marshalls it may take more than one shopping trip before you find exactly what you’re looking for.
