I had no immediate intention to buy another leather jacket, but this beauty was far too gorgeous to resist… And even though I have quite a large jacket (and leather) collection – I don’t actually own a black biker version. I have been looking for the perfect one for quite some time now – and after seeing various ones I’ve wanted (sadly, Balenciaga, Burberry Prorsum, YSL and Joseph – aren’t quite within my price bracket) – I think I might have found it.
Made from super soft leather, quilted arms, silver buckle detailing – this one certainly fits the brief I was after, and will just get better with age (and certainly more affordable).
The only thing I wasn’t initially happy with, were the wide folded flaps on the front; I wanted them more pinned back. So when I went back this weekend to visit my family, my mum (who is a wonderful dressmaker) managed to stitch them, so it’s now near enough perfect!
