I have had my eye out for the perfect leather jacket for a few years now. I always liked the Slimane Dior Homme, but they are hard to come by, and when I did find one on Ebay, it was hard to pull the trigger on such an expensive item without seeing it. I love the classic Schott Perfectos, especially the new lighter weight versions, but other than those I have been relatively uninspired and unmotivated to purchase. I tried and failed to get a Vanson X Junya biker jacket, which is probably ok because I wasn't sold on the laced back. Anyway, Burberry Prorsum SS11 blew me away. I haven't seen a biker jacket even come close to those jackets. Living in CA, it was difficult if not impossible to actually find one of those jackets. The one I had my eye on is the tumbled leather cropped biker: http://uk.burberry.com/store/menswea...-biker-jacket/ IMHO, this is one of the coolest biker jackets in recent history due to its timeless style and modern details. It took some dilligence, but I found one in my size and now I own it. I must say, it is an amazing garment. It probably weighs close to 10 lbs, the leather is thick but soft, and the hardware is, well, hard as nails. I was secretly hoping that when I took it out of the box that it wouldn't fit because then I could say I tried and I could just return it and get my money back from this very contentious purchase. But it fits perfectly. So here's my issue. (Surprisingly, it's not buyers remorse. I have been kind of preparing myself mentally for this for a few years and while it is the most $$ I've spent on any piece of clothing by a longshot, I kind of see it as an investment (and I actually do ride a motorcycle).) I kind of feel like this jacket may attract a bit too much attention. In some ways it's very empowering to wear, but in other ways it's kind of like wearing a saddle or something. It's heavy and has lots of buckles and zippers. If I lived in NYC, or somewhere in Europe it may not be so weird, but in San Francisco I get a bit self conscious. I can't say this has happened to me before. No one has made any remarks or anything, other than a friend who jokingly (but seriously) said it looks like it belongs at the Folsom Street Fair. I can see that ... which is where my hesitation lies. It's a damn badass jacket. I mean it's one serious BADASS jacket...but I'm a little afraid to wear it. Make any sense?
