The cooler days ahead mean one thing for my fall clothing rotation: the resurgence of my vintage Members Only leather bomber. Rescued from a donation pile a few years back with over 30 years in the game, the jacket has not only been a great neutral statement piece for my wardrobe, but the cornerstone of many a great Halloween costume. Imagine my interest when I received word that my jacket was back…and with a new look, no less.
The brand seemingly synonymous with ’80s kitsch has graduated into 2014 and brought a stylish, yet PETA-friendly touch to the 21st century. Boasting “a new kind of cool”, the brand features options like the #2Kool4Skool Men’s Varsity Jacket, which marries warm wool and a quilted lining with a sharp faux leather sleeve, complete with patch detail for a collegiate feel. Consider it “schoolboy luxe”.

For an edgier choice, the Punk Varsity offers a sleek, slightly minimalist slate, making it easy to dress up or down, depending on the day and the occasion. Paired with the right hat and boots, you’ve got a look that will demand attention…in the best way.

As if it were made for fall, the Hoods Up Real Faux Racer (a nod to the brand’s iconic Racer silhouette the even features the classic Members Only tag on the breast pocket) comes not only with a hood built for the chill of autumn, but also with a detachable hoodie feature for versatility no matter the weather. And with color options like Classic Black, Cognac and Dark Brown, this jacket fits the backdrop of the season.
