Leather jacket not biker!

Looking for a lovely stylish leather jacket. Have been looking but cant seem to track down anything that is not a biker jacket. Any suggestions? Nothing to boxy or short. Its a gift so nothing too £££. Its for a 50th present.

Have you looked in Massimo Dutti?

Yes and they look beautiful. Just a bit wary as its a brand that I have never used and know that the sizes are generally small. Have you bought from them? Don't want something that it too short in the body.

Thinking of this:

Green leather jacket

Need a 12 but maybe a 14 would be wiser?

I have a leather jacket from Massimo Dutti and it is lovely. Soft good quality leather. I wouldn't buy larger. Mine is a size 10 and leaves enough room for shirt, or thin sweater. Think you would spoil the look if you go too big.

So stick with a normal size 12? Does anyone else have experience of Massimo ditto sizing?

i like the green one but think it would be annoying around the neck area as it points inwards rather thans folds down

Good point lookatmenow It is pretty close to the neck.
