The motorcycle jacket is a type of leather jacket that never seems to go out of style. A New York City based clothing manufacturing company, Schott NYC, that was founded by two brothers was the first to develop the leather motorcycle jacket in 1928. The longevity of the motorcycle style is attributed to a great functional design and the ability to adapt it to modern trends without losing the original concept.
For 2013, menswear designers have put their own stamp on the leather motorcycle jacket. Kenneth Cole takes the classic design with a short rise, asymmetrically zippered front flap, and uses a deep emerald green distressed leather and gold zippered hardware to incorporate the trend of color.
Khakis are a finicky thing. I’ve previously discussed how khakis don’t work with some types of shirts, and now it’s time to talk about how light-colored khakis simply don’t work with some types of shoes, in this case shoes of particular colors (i.e. black, green or red). Just look at the picture above; how could anyone think shoes that look like they’ve been through a pound of manure could ever work with that nice pair of smooth gray khakis?? Seriously, the color/chino of the khaki just accentuates the shittiness of the shoes. Anyways, red and black shoes never look particular nice with them either (and I don’t care what they say).
Feasible: Light-colored khakis with brown shoes

Now brown shoes go splendidly with any light-colored khakis, even brown ones I dare say. This pair from Zappos would work no doubt (and not with just khakis, mind you); but if you’re willing to dish out for a pair that goes perfectly with light-colored khakis, allow me to introduce you to these babies:
