Short Black leather jacket - on a budget. Is it possible?

Hello all

I really fancy a short black leather jacket for going out etc. I have a parka for the school run so doesn't have to be practical.
Has anyone seen any bargains? The ones I've seen that I've liked so far are all around the £200 mark. Could possibly stretch to £100 but is it possible to get a decent leather jacket for that price? I want one that could potentially last for years.
(I live in hope after finding bargain boots in TKMaxx today smile)

Many thanks in advance

I was going to suggest TK Maxx. I had one from there a few years ago that was very cheap but nice leather. Actually I must dig it out again, it'll be in fashion again lol. My fave leather jacket was bought in the Gap sale for £50.

I bought a stunning one from the sales rack at Vila for 70 EUR last year. Good luck and don't forget charity shops.

Or the tail end of the sales. I ordered a Zara suede jacket for £19.99 last month

Really like the Oasis one cece thanks. Will have a browse through Asos too - always forget to look there.
Charity shops is a good idea thanks donna - had a little look on eBay too, and there are a few possibilities.

I bought a F&F one from there a few years back, and the quality was great.

Blue don't know if you're still looking but I second the one from New Look which Lexie recommends - mine arrived yesterday and I love it!
