    That's really bad looking, even for fake leather. Fake leather can be done well (albeit rarely) but this isn't one of those times.

    which one is fake?[​IMG]

    hopefully you leather experts can help me out here. i picked up the BoO leather bomber from Barney's. ended up getting a size 1, but not sure if i should have gone with a 2. it's slightly tight in the shoulders and chest when i zip up, and if i keep working out, will be pretty tight in bicep area. the leather is really soft and i'm hoping it will stretch out enough to accommodate. but anyways, here's a coupla fit pics. lemme know what y'all think! thanks!

    if you want to layer def size up, as for the jacket itself i think it looks okay but it does look a little tight even in the arms, the 2 isnt really ridiculously bigger than the 1 so i think its a safe bet sizing up one.

    I say size up 1 on the BoO, maybe even 2. The pocket on the chest is opening up when zipped up, that means it is just way too tight especially if you plan to continue working out then your size might go up another size or two.

    I'm not sure it's really supposed to be fake leather, just the style of a motorcycle jacket..
    it's 98% cotton and 2% resin

    It looks like cheap plastic, something you'd find at Forever21.

    Are you butthurt because no one liked the jacket you posted? A jacket that you knew wasn't leather yet you continued to post in the leather jackets thread?
