Thinking of buying a "Patched work" leather jacket... I just wanna know if they are stylish and in fashion? I'm 28 years old and a male would it stylish for someone my age?

Just my opinion, mind you.

If I'm not mistaken, they sometimes call that sort of patchwork leather "Italian Leather"? I also remember one time at the jewelry store an employee showing us a dirty, yellowed diamond and terming it "champagne color".

It's all in the marketing.

I wouldn't wear anything of the sort because if you take a spill off your motorcycle that stuff will probably come apart like tissue paper. But honestly, if it looks good and works for what you need it, why not wear it?

They look cheap, if you mean the kind that is all the same color and made of irregular pieces of leather stitched together. Save up for a regular leather jacket, buy one at the thrift store, or just wear a cloth jacket instead.

I had one of those in the late 70s. Stick with cloth-much classier.
