    I shall be visiting Berlin in early October. Looking to get real quality (German-made) leather jacket while there.

    Preferably vintage, although a brand new one would be considered, too. The spending budget could be up to 350 euros if it helps.

    Can anyone recommend a good place to look? Thanks.

    Real quality + brand new + 350€ = no. Or at least very, very hard.

    Vintage might be possible, but since "vintage" is trendy here, good finds are hard to come by.

    Thank you, Sander.

    If so, I may be willing to go up to 450-500 euros.

    Are there any particular places for finding good leather jackets in Berlin that you'd recommend to visit, anyway?

    Thanks again.

    Hmm... of course there are, like Burg&Schild in Mitte, but they sell mainly American products. I don't know about any actually made in Germany. There are many turkish shops in Neukölln selling leather wares, but 99% of them are absolute crap. But just yesterday I was passing by a shop that advertised to make jackets as well. It didn't look too great, but sometimes these shops are really good. I had a jacket made in Köln in a similar shop that was tremendous value. Will report if I find anything interesting.
