What do you guys think are the best leather jackets, and which of the non-speciality leathers do you like the best? I have a loro piana leather coat, which is great, but was quite expensive and 3/4 length, and I don't wear it too often. I also have a Zegna bomber jacket which I wear quite a bit more often and is great as well, but is very soft and not durable at all. I wear leather quite often (60-75% of the time), and my primary leather wear consists of an Emporio Armani leather blazer (which is quite nice) an Emporio Armani bomber jacket (which is quite nice as well) and a Hugo by Hugo Boss leather coat (thanks Renault78law) that is nice as well. I have had good luck with Armani black label and Emporio Armani leatherwear, and haven't found very big differences in the quality of their lambskin, which appears to be top notch, if not in the class of Seraphin, LP, or Zegna. The Hugo jacket seems to be a little lower quality, but still excellent and better than that of Z Zegna, Bruno Magli, and Bally. Any thoughts on the quality of Andrew Marc, Versace, Cole Haan, Coach, Jil Sander, Prada, Gucci, and the like? I haven't experienced any of their leatherwear so I was curious to see what people's experiences were.
