    Cherokee 2 года назад Lauren awesome video. I have sold or given away several leather jackets because the fit was not right. With the amount of money I have spent, I should have just invested in one of quality.

  • Claire Kurdelak
    Claire Kurdelak 2 года назад Very good vid about fit! I notice you only show one cut of jacket; the 'moto'. It is awesome and maybe a classic, but certainly trendy right now. What about the 'bomber'? I believe this cut is a classic as well. I have a buttery soft bomber jacket from a thrift store. You can find loads of leather jackets at thrift stores! Some out of date because they were too much of the trend in their time; how would you evaluate these to find a gem? Thanks?

  • Johni Autumn
    Johni Autumn Год назад Leather jackets for fashion and for actual use are meant to fit different. For example, for fashion, they can fit however you want them to. But say, as for a Harley Davidson riding jacket, they should be a little bit big because for cold weather they're meant to be layered when you're on the bike. It also depends on the style of the jacket, like a bomber or a classic leather jacket.

  • Vishal Gupta
    Vishal Gupta 6 месяцев назад Generally, younger or smaller the animal, the softer and lighter is the leather e.g. lambskin is softer and more supple than cowskin. If you want a luxury and light weight fit, go for lambskin. If you want a heavier and more durable jacket then go for cowskin as it is thicker and is stiffer.

    WakinTheDeadFan 2 месяца назад Completely agree, I bought a suede jacket off eBay and it’s perfect, a denim jacket from a charity shop and you couldn’t tell the difference despite them being half the price. I love getting one over on the extortionate fashion designers.
