In the quest to add a little edge to your look without exhausting your bank account, a simple moto sweater can do just that.  Banana Republic's take on the classic style adopts the tailored fit and short cut of a moto jacket and modernizes it with the asymmetrical zipper detail and suede elbow patches. To add a bit of drama, try this novelty sweater with skinny black jeans and layer it with a longer knit to give just a bit of warmth and subtle texture.  The great thing about this style is it works great whether you're zipped up to show off the details or unzipped to wear it like a leather jacket.  Either way, you'll be sure to turn heads in this flattering yet masculine fall piece.
