I'm looking for a new jacket in light blue...
Which do you prefer?

Fucktifyno Sun 26-Mar-17 15:40:38

I like the biker one

plutohasfeelingstoo Sun 26-Mar-17 15:48:23

The first one definitely

Jojoanna Sun 26-Mar-17 15:50:06

First one

nannyplumislostinspace Sun 26-Mar-17 15:51:36

First one. Where is it from?

user1490538976 Sun 26-Mar-17 16:01:36

It's from asos

I like the 2nd. It's much more fashionable and i like the slouchier look. The first is just a bog standard biker and generally speaking i don't like bikers in pastels - it just looks a bit try hard.

First one.

user1490538976 Sun 26-Mar-17 16:12:15

The only thing which puts me off the blazer is the tie parts to the sleeve ..would of looked so much nicer without

BusterGonad Sun 26-Mar-17 16:15:40

I love the second one as I just adore those sleeves. It's a real head turner.

user1490538976 Sun 26-Mar-17 16:21:34

The only thing with the first one is with it getting warmer might be too warm with it being leather look

BusterGonad Sun 26-Mar-17 16:32:41

I personally feel that the shape and the colour of the first one don't really go very well. It's a soft colour with a structured shape. Iyswim?!?! smile

The first one is lovely - it gets my vote.

BreatheDeep Sun 26-Mar-17 18:51:25

Do you want to keep wearing it in the long term? If so, go with the first. The second one will look dated fast. If you just need it for a certain outfit or not bothered about it going out of style, go with the second if you love it.

Second one is by far the nicest. Biker jackets have been around for ages it's good to see a different style.

u123 Sun 26-Mar-17 19:07:58

I like both but prefer the second

Iamastonished Sun 26-Mar-17 19:21:26

"I love the second one as I just adore those sleeves."

That's the reason why I don't like it. If I am chilly enough to need a jacket I want one with proper arms, hence my preference for the first jacket.

And don't get me on the subject of jumpers with 3/4 length sleeves - one of the most pointless pieces of clothing ever invented.

FrenchLavender Sun 26-Mar-17 19:28:16

First one. I don't like the second one at all.

EmmaC78 Sun 26-Mar-17 19:29:35

First one definitely.

DragonNoodleCake Sun 26-Mar-17 19:32:28

First by far

user1490538976 Sun 26-Mar-17 19:37:25

I have 5 biker jackets already ..I think it's becoming a obsession of mine ..think il Toss a coin and decide

Hellmouth Sun 26-Mar-17 19:38:53

I would get them both blush

KindDogsTail Sun 26-Mar-17 19:54:00

The first.
The second looks more like a blouse.

BusterGonad Mon 27-Mar-17 07:17:35

Iam I just think the sleeves are lovely. I'm not thinking in practical terms as I feel both jackets are just for mild days and evenings out. To me a practical jacket is a wool coat or something so the sleeves are neither here nor there for me. Also I don't really like practical clothes! 😂

Iamastonished Mon 27-Mar-17 08:02:10

Good job we aren't all the same grin

I wore some impractical boots on Friday evening and regretted it after traipsing all round Sheffield. I prefer practical clothes. Comfort over style for me, although I would prefer comfort and style.
