Related to this Q - does anyone have any thoughts on quality of Gucci leather jackets? Pricing I saw at the shop the other day was about USD1700 (i.e. 50% off), and fits well. Seems like good quality but not a leather jacket expert by any means.
The mainstream labels I've seen (Burberry in particular) at a similar price point have been at best mediocre. Gucci seems like a step up in quality though clearly I wouldn't buy at RRP.
There's so many labels out there - so am happy to take recommendations for any price point of leather jackets as well
I'm fairly familiar with Gucci leather, and it's good quality. It's made in Italy and is a step above Burberry. 50% off sounds like a steep discount for Gucci, so I wonder if the style is a bit outdated. They obviously had a big designer change so unless it's a staple piece, you might want to be wary that it'd become unfashionable. When you buy a leather such as Gucci it's supposed to be more fashion forward than some of the classics that are more often posted in this thread. That said, Gucci is far from pushing boundaries such as RO, so as long as it's not garish it might occupy a happy medium space.
