Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 568

All Saints are mediocre even when on sale. That jacket on the link looks terrible though, the leather looks faux and cheap. It honestly look like the faux leather jackets I see at H&M.

Any recommendations for something in that price range?

How tight is it supposed to fit? Right now it definitely a bit snug, but not uncomfortable. I don't think I have much room to grow in it though. Also, the leather seems quite supple. How much, if any will it stretch?

Fit is good, but probably shouldn't be buying that if you're still growing.

It's definitely a bigger purchase, so I just wanted to make sure. I'm definitely going to hang on to the size 48 then I think. Cheers everyone for all of your input!!!

 

One thing I can say with confidence, definitely don't size up, so good decision.

 

I obviously don't know how it fits and feels as I am not you, but from your pictures, you can see you have room in the chest and upper clavicle area merging towards shoulders. Your arms are not shrink wrapped in it, you could probably wear a light knit under that, that's how much room I see, so definitely no sizing up, keep that.

 

You are probably just not used to the slimmer fit and feel of the jacket.

The $500 range is awkward. Either spend more for a nice leather jacket, or spend less for wool/cotton/whatever.

I'm looking at this one: http://www.us.allsaints.com/men/leather-jackets/allsaints-kushiro-leather-biker-jacket/?colour=5&category=9

they are actually not all that bad, i have seen them in person and some are heavier than i expected, i would not pay retail for it and if i were you, i would go to the store and see how the jacket feels and if it feels cheap then you have your answer

post #8514 of 12359

post #8515 of 12359
Yup, "L Zip" jacket, 2006 I think?
post #8516 of 12359

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

i don't think its "clean" enough for those panels and zippers with the stacking on the arms
post #8518 of 12359
i think you should wear your 5zip wink.gif
post #8519 of 12359
Is the model name of that jacket "the rocketeer?" because that is the only reason I sort of like it

Yeah, I think I could definitely fight a lighter knit under there. I think that is exactly it though, I'm just not used to the slimmer fit of the jacket.


I'm definitely keeping it! Thanks again for all of your help mate!!!
