Leather jackets

Recommended Posts

It looks like a great deal for $800, but I wish it was black. Isn't it a women's jacket, though?

anyone have suggestions for a cheap (broke college kid budget) black leather jacket? open collar is cool, but no print, patches, or pre-distressing

damn, I do like that though I'd probably dye it, wonder if it's my size?

lol I completely missed the size there at the bottom, it's two sizes too big for me at least, probably 3. I would've had it professionally gutted, dyed dark forest green, and then reassembled properly.

i didn't know you had to take it apart to dye it. how much would it cost to dye a leather jacket like that?

Hrm, I wonder how much it would be to make my schott perfecto's lining removable, or just remove it in generally. I have a feeling it would fall better.

Séraphin now belongs to Hermès. That's how they roll; buy the best maker.

What brands should I look at for a slim fitting leather jacket that's just a pretty basic bomber design. My budget is around $600. Something along the lines of this V&V one :

V&V is your brand then. Don't think the bomber is more than $450 or something.

I was very lucky to get a Zilli lambskin coat passed down from my older brother.

I had to get it tailored but now it fits me perfectly, the quality is very good, and the leather is incredibly soft.

Pics don't do it justice IMO.

Yeah it's in my budget but I'm just wondering if there are any other choices to consider

Go for the V&V, it's by far the best value you will get in a new jacket anywhere near your price.

The V+V is $712 AUD

so it will be around $550 US. but will be more when ur exchange rate depreciates even more in the coming months

Just bought this Tim Hamilton on one of the worst impulse buys of my life, hope it ends up being worth it - never owned decent leather before

Just bought this Tim Hamilton for $500 on eBay on one of the worst impulse buys of my life, hope it ends up being worth it - never owned decent leather before

It's worth at least half that in materials alone, just the zippers are worth over $50, and if it's lamb or goat it takes 4 hides to make a jacket, so good buy. Good looking jacket anyway.

What is the lining material on this thing? I tried the jacket on at a sample sale and it was scratchy/itchy as fuck. I have very sensitive skin but I could not imagine wearing this wearing just a thin T shirt. Although now I feel I shoulda bought and resold because prices were cheap. Retail on this jacket is what? Like $2000-2500?

The lining is an iridescent linen. Retail was about 2500. Recent Gilt sale had this one in blue going for upwards of 600.
