This leather jacket is one if my best clothing investments to date. I have many leather jackets, all good brands and pricey, but I have really grown to love and, indeed, respect the craftsmanship in this one.
The jacket is a slim fitted piece, with lots of blingy buttons. I didn't wear it for the longest time being worried about the bling - but it's actually a great contrast to the dark colour and doesn't come off as too flashy at all.
Features I love (all pictured below):
Chain inside collar for hanging;
Beautiful piping in Tory orange, and exquisite lining in Tory logo silk inside jacket.
Three button closure at wrists;
Perfectly proportioned pockets;
The softest, sturdiest leather I own - no scratch, no signs of wear, other than some very slight wear at the top edge of the sleeve openings, which adds just the right touch of character.
Patent leather lining inside sleeve openings in a gorgeous red!
Patent leather piping INSIDE. The button holes! Stunning.
A great length for petite me;
Perfectly fitted and perfect length sleeves.
This was the very first Sgt Pepper jacket TB made. Listed at 895/- I think. I combined a rewards card and a New Years promo to grab it on New Years Eve, precisely at midnight! ;)
Total tangent: should I keep the Martinas in calf hair leopard or get the pumps or neither. The wedges feel on the edge of dowdy to me...
Patent leather lining.
That red piping of the button hole is patent leather too.
