Faux leather jackets look better than real leather jackets?

    I know, real leather jackets will far outlast faux leather jackets.

    Recently, I purchased a real leather jacket. It feels great, but I preferred the look of my faux leather jacket. The faux leather jacket also received more compliments from others.

    Anyone here find faux leather jackets to be better looking visually when compared to actual leather jackets?

    Compliments from plebes might as well be insults.

    Was the only difference between them material or was the fit and style also different?

    Same fit, but the faux had a distressed look.

    faux leathers are the worst. it's not cool if it's made of a faux leather.

    It happened the same to me


    I have a faux leather jacket from Zara and it looks nice and fits great. It costed around 50€.

    But if you ask in this forum they will always point you to luxury garments.


    Just trust what you see

    ...And it even comes with a free wallet! [​IMG]

    I would not wear a faux jacket except, perhaps, as a piece of on-trend throwaway fashion if I was socialising in Hackney on a regular basis.

    I don't know, I don't think I can agree with you on this one. How much was your leather jacket? Faux is just not my type, but I guess it's just preference.
