A suede jacket can be an intimidating proposition for some. Allow us to per-suede you.
I have always struggled with leather jackets. Almost impossible to blend into an outfit, they're too focused, too specific, too edgy. They come with such cultural baggage, one only sees the reference points and counter-culture heritage, rather than the garment itself. In trying to build a balanced, complementary ensemble, it's just too damn loud.
It’s a jacket with the volume turned up, from the rocker's cropped asymmetrical biker jacket through to the Obergruppenführer's trench coat, the leather jacket is the star in its own movie. A costume. A pose.
