Hey guys.. I'm beginning to take a keen interest in clothes/style and what looks right rather than just impulsively buying ill-fitting items, or clothes that I wear once which rot in the wardrobe for eternity.

Back onto the main question - I have a $200/£100 limit to buy a new jacket, but would ideally like to spend as little as possible. I live in the UK and I'm pretty limited in terms of places to shop, however I have a few images of jackets which appealed to me from a web store. I do have a penchant for leather/biker style jackets, however I'm open to any suggestions.

In terms of what I look like (if this needs to be taken into account when choosing items?) - 6ft 1, medium muscular build, dark hair and medium skin tone.

One: £50





Two: £130





Three: £90





I don't really like jackets/coats in this style (too conservative for me):





Opinions and suggestions are much appreciated!

I like three the best. I really liked the front of two, but the back kinda ruined it for me.

Yeah, it was my favorite until I saw the back
it looks very short as well. Number three looks like a real nice fit, and would merge well with my jewelery.

for cheap, vaguely decent jackets/clothes in the UK, Asos isn't bad. Maybe check Uniqlo as well and maybe even H&M/Zara

bahhh, fuck TK Maxx lol, out of the 95% of crap in there you can sometimes find the odd gem though... like trainers with knives! Yeah, Asos is where those pictures come from - seems like one of the only decent places online that don't charge ridiculous prices. I'll check out Uniglo. I've been to H&M a few times and never bought anything, but I'll check back soon. River Island is nice for getting the odd thing, but they are usually a bit chavvy. Topman tends to be shit, with the clothes usually made with naff materials and tailored for malnourished nu-rave/emo teens, whilst independent high-street shops usually charge ridiculous prices.
