    It's certainly approprate indoors in some circumstances, such as the following:

    We have 400+ folks in the plant I work in doing something just like this. Just noted the article the photos came from is from a Textile fire resistance firm advertising thier products to be used in place of leather and suede.

    As for other uses or in place of a blazer/sweater, not too likely in corporate casual or "smart casual" dress. For some help with this:

    But my leathers/wool/canvas and GoreTex jackets all get worn in and out of the office daily without issue. :)

    My fondest jacket memories have been indoors, on a bed, taking a nap in my suits of armor. :) As far as being in an indoor social setting, I suppose it's best to take it off but I suppose each setting has its own unwritten decorum or lack of. I avoid sitting at any table with food wearing a jacket.

    Not only setting but the jacket itself probably plays into it. A really nice hide and cut can probably be worn in place of a blazer in *some* situations. While wearing a black
    Biker/perfecto style would look ridiculous.

    I love leather jackets. But I don't want to be a D Bag.

    My $0.02.

    Totally. Though I think you could safely have tea with the Queen wearing a Ventura.

    No leather jacket indoors for me in place of a suit jacket or a blazer.

    Really depends. A favourite casual outfit for me is shirt, tie, trousers and a leather jacket. If I'm stopping inside, and it's warm enough, I'll take off the jacket. If it's too cold, I won't.

    I wouldn't think twice about it at a bar for example. At my last position my boss kept the office like an icebox, so I would often keep my jacket on all day...but it was not a leather jacket. Had that been the only jacket available then yes, I hate being cold. Just depends on the situation and context.

    guess there won't be any umbrella answer for this question, our jacket style, the rest of our outfit, our indoor activity, people we're interacting with, our society perception of leather jacket are all different.
    I won't wear leather jacket to formal event (=wedding) , I do wear them to birthday invitation, to church, and even to funeral since these events in our culture are much less formal people wear smart casual going out outfit for these events.

    I frequently wear a leather jacket instead of a blazer and i wear it inside too. But I feel fortunate that I never need to wear a suit or anything more formal than corduroy pants. I have seen ties worn with nice Aero half-belts and such and they look fine to me.

    I sometimes wear one my lighter leather jackets (lambskin Wested Raiders, Schott 654 - both simple, elegant designs) inside in cases where a blazer or sportscoat would have been more typical. For example, I wore the Wested to a dining-out group dinner at an Italian restaurant just a couple of weeks ago.

    Hey, we're living in a wear-whatever-you-want era, and I'm a decidedly non-formal guy. Wearing a leather jacket inside doesn't even count as an affectation or faux pas anymore...
