Good idea or not? For something a bit dresser than a leather biker? Or just a no no? Not sure if it's making a more mature jacket try to be hip or something if that even makes sense. I'm mid 30s and wonder if it actually would be aging?
Oh no is the link not working? It takes me to the clearance part of next with the jacket on it - I just typed in black velvet biker. It's a proper soft velvet. A leather jacket isn't always just the right thing and I thought it might make a nice little cover up.
Op, weren't you the one who started the no spend 2017 thread, and asked for people to keep you on the straight and narrow? 😉 Only teasing, I would be hopeless at a no spend. The jacket looks really nice
Thanks for that fuzzy In fact this was ordered in the boxing day sales of 2016 and only arrived today so therefore is entirely outside the boundaries of my pledge! as were the other two coats I'm thinking about I've always had a thing about having a good coat and shoes. And bag if possible. Not necessarily expensive, but good.
I don't mind the feel of synthetic velvet callar, it feels quite plush actually. Bit like a soft teddy bear!
I tried it on full price and it didn't sit right on me and seemed to be really small which is weird for next . Anyways it was sooo overpriced I'm not surprised they had loads in the sale . Amazing discount though . I think it would work well for the party season ( which is what I wanted it for ) but not so much the rest of the time although I guess winter evenings out would be ok .
