The Edit: Fall’s Best Moto Jackets

The best of the trend, whether you’re blowing bucks or pinching pennies.

TheEdit-motoEvery cold-weather season, an outerwear trend tops ‘em all. Right now, at least for me, it’s cocoon coats, huge, enveloping pieces that swaddle you in miles of fabric—and keep you toasty, toasty warm. Problem is, it’s not quite time to break out the big guns of outerwear yet, for fear of looking like you’re putting the sartorial horse before the cart. (It’s akin to wearing sleeveless tops in April, despite the fact that it’s still 55 degrees out.) And anyway, diving headfirst into winter-wear means missing out on the best piece of the fall season: the moto jacket. Wear a bouclé version for office-appropriate edge, or go all out with copious zippers, quilting and tassels. Here, your best bets.

    Would love to see a lower end leather, perhaps in the $200-$500 range. Anything out there?
