The Most Wanted Diesel Jackets
Diesel Leather Jackets
Leather jackets have been a key part of the rock and roll uniform since the genre’s explosion in the late 1940s and early 1950s. With Diesel’s devotion to creating styles that offer a touch of the rebellious spirit, it makes sense that the label’s leather jacket range is one of its most popular. Spanning across the classic biker cut to a collarless, fitted silhouette, each piece of the selection is designed to accompany modern menswear ensembles with Diesel’s trademark style.
Diesel Bomber Jackets
Diesel’s affinity for reimagining timeless pieces is evident in its seasonal renditions of the bomber jacket. The historically rich piece proves the power of functional design with contemporary finishes and detailing. Season after season, Diesel presents the outerwear piece in a range of colorways with features like embroidered patterns, contrast pull tabs and playful prints infused into the jacket’s presentation.
Diesel Denim Jackets
With denim at the root of the Diesel brand, it’s understandable that the label has mastered the arm of the jean jacket. Diesel taps into its expertise to create a range of transeasonal styles that work just as well as a midlayer piece on a balmy Winter’s day as they do flung over the shoulder as the temperatures rise. Classic trucker styles are offered in a range of constructions including raw indigo and washed-out, distressed finishes.

How To Care For Your Diesel Jackets
The care required for your men’s Diesel jacket will depend on the model’s specific construction and cut. We recommend following the care instructions inside every jacket, but there are some helpful tips to get you started below.
• Wipe clean when needed (as soon as you notice a mark or stain).
• Should the stain persist, use specialist leather cleaner to remove the marking.
• Denim is often renowned for its hard-wearing properties and, therefore, requires less care than other materials. Most jean jackets can be machine washed but if the style features embellishments, hand washing may be recommended to avoid damaging delicate details.
• Synthetic fabrics, like polyester, vary greatly in their care requirements. Generally, finer fabric or styles with embroidery or embellishments may call for a gentle wash or dry clean in order to protect the construction. For peace of mind, refer back to the garment’s care label for specific instructions.
- What kind of materials are used to make Diesel’s jackets?
Denim and leather jackets make up much of Diesel’s jacket offering, though nylon, cotton jersey and twill styles can often be seen throughout the label’s seasonal collections too. For the jean jacket styles, Diesel uses a range of colorways including dark indigo, light wash and black denim. The brand’s leather jacket collections also vary in approach — some offering a smooth finish while others present pebbled textures.
- What is Diesel Black Gold?
In 2008, Diesel launched its high-end clothing line entitled Diesel Black Gold. The sub-brand aims to offer a more contemporary approach than mainline Diesel. Experimental, refined and premium quality are fused together to create Diesel Black Gold’s irreverent apparel designs.
- How do Diesel jackets fit?
The fit of Diesel jackets varies from style to style. If the jacket is oversized or offers a fit that is not standard, this should be outlined in the product description.
