I've decided to go for it and splash out on a leather biker jacket, but I'm spoilt for choice! It has to be super soft leather, not too much silver hardware, not cropped or too short. I'm looking at Hush, White Company, All Saints... Do any of you have one which you could vouch for? Or is there another brand I should be looking at? It'll be my most expensive purchase ever so I want to get it right. Please send photos!! Thanks
I have a camel coloured one from Mint Velvet (few years ago now but they always have a leather jacket or two in store). I saw a lovely navy blue one in Jigsaw yesterday. I have a 50 quid voucher left over from xmas, but I was 249 quid short lol.
My best advice would be to try on as many as you can, whilst appearing to be the same style, they all seem to fit and suit people differently. One of the hardest jackets to buy I found. I'd also recommend sizing down and not to worry too much if it feels tight when done up - they're not supposed to be zipped up anyway, and often look a lot better when more fitted.Plus they can give a bit if they are lambs leather. If you go to All Saints they will practically insist you size down (not that you have t listen of course!)
