For ages, GQ senior associate editor Sam Hine’s menswear white whale was a vintage leather blazer. After years of fruitless eBay searches, though, the arbiters of cool at Supreme finally answered Sam’s prayers with a slick, well-tailored version in their Spring-Summer 2019 collection. “It’s got a sleazy Uncut Gems vibe and a really easy, boxy fit,” Sam says. “In other words, it’s perfect.”

If you wondering how versatile something as specific as a leather blazer can be, as far as Sam’s concerned, the answer is very.  “I wear it with anything I would a normal leather jacket—T-shirts, western shirts, sweaters, soccer jerseys, whatever.” And while his initial online hunt ended in vain, Sam’s leather blazer journey ultimately ended right where he started. “Funnily enough, I missed the release and ended up buying it on eBay anyway.” 

Hoping to follow in Sam’s louche footsteps? You can still pick up the burgundy version of his Supreme jacket on eBay and Grailed, or find similarly killer leather blazers from spots like SSENSE and Matches Fashion below. (And don’t miss our comprehensive guide to pulling off leather everything here.)
