All what do you think about this leather jacket? Does Isaia make quality leather jackets?
How about the sleeves? Can a tailor shorten them?No doubt the quality is top tier. I think you can't really alter it so if it doesn't fit be prepared to send it back.
will do thank you very much for the advice!I would suggest checking with the guys on tof in the Streetwear and Denim section. Most likely going to get more specific answers for an item like this. I believe the fedora lounge forums will also have some great leather advice. As stated above, no question you will get good quality from Isaia but these others may be able to give you other options in the same or lower price range. Having said that, this looks like a nice trucker although the green color does not show up well for me On my iPad. Good luck.
What do you recommend under $1k? Does coach make decent leather jackets?If you like the Trucker jacket design, go for a blue jean version by Levi or a similar vendor and you will reduce your cost to perhaps $150. If you are looking for a quality leather jacket, there are far more elegant designs out there that, to my eye, more closely justify the price range you are considering.
Take a look at the Valstar Valstarino. Not a trucker, but a very highly regarded jacket.What do you recommend under $1k? Does coach make decent leather jackets?
Have you looked at Remy? They have great offerings, many of which are in your price range.What do you recommend under $1k? Does coach make decent leather jackets?
OK I like these! Yoox has a few on sale but they are in lighter shades of green and red.Take a look at the Valstar Valstarino. Not a trucker, but a very highly regarded jacket.
Yes at retail they are not cheap. I've seen nice Zegna leather jackets at NM too but again at full retail they are way above my price range.Valstar also makes a beautiful shearling trucker available on NMWA but it is out of your price range.
Of the options you linked to, my choice would be the brown leather Outlaw Bikers Jacket!. Now that is a winner, to my eyes.What's your thoughts on Belstaff? Are they quality made? MR PORTER has them on sale:
I liked that one the most too. It was marked down to $500 today but unfortunately my size is sold out.Of the options you linked to, my choice would be the brown leather Outlaw Bikers Jacket!. Now that is a winner, to my eyes.
