    Hi everybody,

    I'm always wanted to have a black leather jacket. I've been searching on the Internet and found one that I really like. It's the Lark model from All Saints.

    https://www.allsaints.com/men/leathers/allsaints-lark-leather-jacket/

    The problem is that I've found a lot of bad comments about the quality of this brand. Does anyone have this leather jacket and could comment on its quality ? Is it really bad ?

    Do you know any other jackets that have a similar style ?

    Thanks for your input guys.

    There are 2 big problems with 90% of the leather jackets out there:
    1. Poor quality leather
    2. Poor construction
    It's the same reason a $50 pair of leather shoes isn't as good as $400 shoes made in UK or USA.
    Aero Leather is probably one of the gold standards out there right now - but you'll pay a lot for them.
    Schott out of USA is still a high quality jacket
    Schott jacket similar to what you're looking for:

    With either, you can expect to pay double the cost of the All Saints.
