Blazer style leather jacket rather than biker?

Has anyone seen anything? I find biker jackets with that kind of side zip and folder over lapels very unflattering on my boobs. I do suit blazers so wonder if there is a good leather jacket the same or a leather jacket with a zip straight up and down?

They are very wearable, I have one from 10 yrs ago I still wear loads

Not sure where you'd find any...somewhere a bit more classic like Jaeger or East?

How about this from oasis? I have the cheaper faux leather version and it looks gorgeous on

That’s just about the style I like except I’d really like a collar!

There's a thread on here at the moment about investing in more expensive items and loads of posters there have leather blazers lurking unworn in their wardrobes from the 90s... possibly not helpful but I am tickled at the coincidence.

Ha I've just been on that thread! From what I've seen, it's still death-by-biker on the high street so I'd go second hand or vintage. You'd probably pick one up for next to nothing so, even if it needed specialist cleaning, you'd still be quids in - and ahead of the fashion curve. smile

I have one, but find it too 'straight' on the waist - I am hourglass (also with big boobs), but if I was getting another I would make sure it had a more fitted shape (but I suspect leather just won't hang or fit well with my shape).

Hmmmm, may be I need to try more styles on! Thanks.
