Opinions on quality of ACNE leather jackets?

What's your experience with their jackets? I know that they're fashion items, not proper biker gear, but then I'm not a biker.

I just received my second Acne Studios Oliver jacket and I have to say I am very happy with them. Leather is grainy in both. It feels sturdy and not fragile at all like some lamb leathers I have. I think the fit is good, true to size. I have noticed one posters of the forum being not impressed about Acne jackets but he have his own spoon in other soups so I think his opinion should be highly suspected.

Thanks. I'd just ordered a black Ashton from Farfetch and hear the size (IT46) wasn't available after all. Bummer. It's from last year. I'm now set on it and can't find anything remotely like it. I think the attraction of the mode is that it's suitably urban and doesn't look like the wearer really wishes they had a motorcycle or a Cessna. Looking for alternatives, sugggestions much appreciated.

I've had a Acne Gibson for a few month. Gotta say I really like the style of it, but I'm starting to suspect the quality isn't that great. After just a few days the seam tore right next to the pocket. And now I just noticed it's torn under the collar too, which is why I googled Acne leather jacket quality and ended up here. The first time the seam tore I took it to the shop and they sent it to the tailer for free. Might do it again or else I'll just end up glueing it or something..
