Dress for Your Dream Job With Wilsons Leather
Wilsons Leather Men's Contemporary Open Bottom Leather Jacket with Thinsulate Lining from $167.99 via coupon code "DEALNEWS" (a low by $83)
You won't have those handy oversized pockets Indy sports on his jacket, but that actually makes this version easier to wear. And if you do come across a valuable artifact — like a 140-carat diamond, golden fertility idol, or the Holy Grail — that won't fit into these smaller pockets, well, hopefully you brought along your satchel.
Black Rivet Women's Leather Scuba Jacket with Distinct Seaming for $139.99 via coupon code "DEALNEWS" ($210 off)
Whether you prefer to emulate Black Widow or Sydney Bristow from Alias, this fitted leather jacket will work. It's even cropped short, so as not to interfere with your kicks if your cover is blown.
Wilsons Leather Men's Heavy Duty Weathered Leather Jacket for $239.99 via coupon code "DEALNEWS" (a low by $60)
Vin Diesel showed up to the premiere of Fast & Furious in a white leather jacket. Ryan Gosling also wore a white jacket in Drive (although his was satin, which looked cool but isn't the sturdiest material). Something about the color must help you drive faster.
Black Rivet Women's Single-Breasted Velvety Peached Trench Coat with Tie Belt for $51.99 plus $10 s&h via coupon code "DEALNEWS" (a low by $13)
If political power is appealing to you, a good trench is vital. Can you even count how many times you've seen Kate Middleton in a long coat? And Selina Meyer from Veep has shown the world exactly how a fashionable lady president would dress, with trench coats in more than one shade.
Wilsons Leather Men's Shirt Collar Lamb Jacket for $219.99 via coupon code "DEALNEWS" ($330 off)
Wolverine has lived long enough to develop a personal style that suits his status as a good guy with rough edges. This jacket has a vintage 70s feel, so it looks like you picked it up earlier in your crime fighting career and hung onto it because it's awesome and you have more important things to worry about than trendy outerwear.
Black Rivet Women's Satin Rib-Knit Bomber Jacket from $31.99 plus $10 s&h via coupon code "DEALNEWS" ($48 off)
Bombers don't have to be heavy coats with shearling trim. This lighter iteration has the same aesthetic, but you won't have to wait until winter to get some wear.
Actor, or Anything Else
Black Rivet Men's Medium Wash Denim Jacket with Slight Distressing for $53.99 via coupon code "DEALNEWS" ($81 off)
It seems to be a rule that if you're an actor, you must wear a jean jacket in public sometimes. But that's probably due to the versatility of denim. You can wear it for a rugged cowboy look, or make it as punk or as preppy as you feel — even the always dapper Don Draper owned a denim jacket.
Black Rivet Women's Distressed Stars and Stripes Leather Jacket with Lacing Detail for $137.99 via coupon code "DEALNEWS" (a low by $35)
The stars, lacing details, and offbeat color give this attitude that would become Britney Spears, Madonna, or Kelly Clarkson. Or you! But you'll need to procure your own record contract.
