With the gold rush, guns, and a rugged new frontier, the Wild West inspired its own brand of fashion. Made from soft, supple leather that feels like butter when tanned, a buckskin jacket conjures colorful characters like Jeremiah Johnson and Buffalo Bill Cody. When the west was wild, mountain men, scouts, gunslingers, and Native Americans all relied on these sturdy jackets for day-to-day wear. Often trimmed with hand-cut fringe and carved antler buttons, a buckskin jacket offered eye-catching form as well as function. Shoppers looking to evoke their inner cowboy or frontier woman can enjoy the vast inventory of buckskin apparel on eBay. Inspired by Native American buckskin coats, jackets embellished with long fringe across the chest, back, and hemline make a striking presentation. Embroidery, fur, beads, braiding, and other details make these jackets look like wearable art. Men and women can also find modern outerwear made from soft, pliable buckskin. While some shoppers lean toward a snap-up suede jacket with a western-style cut, others prefer a zippered motorcycle-style buckskin leather jacket. Western frontier or 21st century, buckskin equals comfort, style, and long-lasting durability.
