Topshop Leather Jacket - Yay or Nay?

Does this look nice?

I want a leather jacket to wear now. I have a lot of leather jackets but I have gained so much weight and can't fit into them. So this will just be an in between jacket until I can fit in my nicer ones.

Does it look nice? Or does the leather look cheap?

Hmm. I clicked on the link and it said page not found...

It does look a bit on the plasticky side but that suits the style. The belt thing would annoy me though.

This Oasis one is slightly more classic (and cheaper)

Oh no I think it's too shiny - not a fan

ReallyConvolutedCareerHistory Sat 23-Sep-17 02:55:35

How about this?

furmommy Sat 23-Sep-17 03:06:08

I don't love that one either because it has so much going on. So many belts and buckled bits

furmommy Sat 23-Sep-17 03:07:56

I prefer this asos one

The all saints balfern is similar. If you wait till they have their 20-30% off (probably in next few weeks) it won't cost too much more. It's much nicer. That looks a bit cheap for the price.

Sorry it's a bit more that I thought. But their sale should be imminent.

Just cant bring myself to pay current All Saints prices. They've rocketed up in recent years and I don't think the quality has improved accordingly.

I've just bought a Minimum black leather biker from amazon, reduced from £220 to £32. Can't link as on phone but search it. It's coming today so I can update later on the quality, cut, etc.

Love the style of it but sorry to say it does look a bit cheap and plasticky.

CarlHickbread Sat 23-Sep-17 08:26:33

Much prefer the 2nd one OP

brogueish

Tell us please! That sounds like an amazing deal!

I actually like the Balfern but find it expensive. Maybe I should wait for the sale! Would you know if they run small?

brogueish Sat 23-Sep-17 12:34:10

This is the one I've bought: www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01N5PAQGB/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&th=1&psc=1&tag=mumsnetforum-21

It's just arrived and it's much nicer than it needs to be for £32! The leather feels lovely, but it's a nubuck rather than a smooth leather. That's actually better for me because I have another leather jacket and I wanted something to wear to work that wouldn't scare the horses. This will do the job nicely. I'm a pretty solid 10 and I got the 8 (36) because I know I'm 36 in Danish sizes.

phoebemac Sat 23-Sep-17 14:24:43

Blimey brogueish what a bargain! The other sizes are £132.00 envy It looks lovely.

Sammysquiz Sat 23-Sep-17 14:55:29

Ooh I just bought the last size 8 Amazon one. Thanks Brogueish, have been looking for something like that for ages, never think of looking on Amazon for clothes.

The All Saints 20-30% off mentioned above, is that Black Friday you mean?

I already have about 10 leather jackets (and that doesn't include the suede ones) but everyone keeps talking about this brand so I'm tempted to try one of the two which I understand to be the 'classic' ones, the Bales and the Balfern.

PNGirl Sat 23-Sep-17 17:34:03

They do promote throughout the year, not just for Black Friday. I'm sure I've seen 20% off in October.

EnidButton Sat 23-Sep-17 18:30:38

All Saints ones are too heavy for me. I really want to buy a leather jacket this year but can't find the one.

I looked at the first TS and it's quite shiny and a bit cheap looking. I've seen faux leather ones that look nicer.

Judydreamsofhorses Sat 23-Sep-17 19:50:30

I like that ASOS one a lot, the belt thing on the Topshop one would be annoying, I think.

zippyswife Sat 23-Sep-17 23:31:03

There was 20-30% off in October last year at All Saints on virtually all the jackets as I tried the majority on as they were in the sale. I actually bought the cargo but returned it for an ink blue wyatt (which was basically the balfern).

zippyswife Sat 23-Sep-17 23:32:45

And yes they say you should size down- wish I'd have gone for the 8 now as this 10 is a big baggyer than I'd planned- but I wouldn't listen to their advice 🙄

Anyone seen the Topshop leather in the first pic in person?
