In the Closet: The Leather Biker Jacket

The leather jacket is a wardrobe essential for me.  I have to admit as a bit of a clothes hoarder I have a few leather biker style jackets but this one being my newest is my current favourite. I bought it earlier in the year from Allsaints,  it’s the Pitch jacket and available here. I didn’t really have much of a chance to wear it after I bought it as it got so hot quickly here in France, so I was itching to wear it again.  I decided to go one size up with this jacket as I wanted to be able to wear layers under it including chunky jumpers.  Even though the leather is quite supple I still want to break it in a bit more, so that it’s super soft and almost like a second skin (no pun intended).

At the moment I’m wearing this jacket a lot as the weather is fluctuating, one day being cold enough to be wearing hats and gloves and the next day just the right temperature for my leather jacket.  Another thing that I like about leather jackets are that, if they are thick enough they are a fantastic and stylish protection against the wind; essential for the winter months here in France.

Here are a few more leather jackets that have caught my eye recently:
