    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.

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

    Never wear leather while driving a car, never!

    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.

    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


    schott nyc has good jackets closer to your range but they are all classic and not distressed

    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!!!

    Not this one.

    The one shown (with black zippers) was 2005. It was re-issued with silver zips in 2006 (Ref # 6HH5047001):

    can someone help me find this jacket? It's from the movie Interview with a hitman. It's the exact leather jacket I want.
