Moto jackets have been having a moment for the past year, and I’ve embraced them wholeheartedly (as seen here and here). When going through my fall wardrobe, I decided it was high time for me to invest in a black suede version this season. Frugal by nature, I didn’t really want to spend more than $200 – and so my search began. I finally settled on this one, and I can’t wait to toss it on over everything from jeans and a simple tee to pretty little chiffon dresses.

About the  Fit:
In general, I prefer a sleek fitted look in moto jackets, but I specifically wanted the ability to layer this one with thicker sweaters as the temps get cooler. I ordered this jacket in large and extra-large and wound up keeping the smaller size as it provides ample room for layers without being too bulky. The leather isn’t the softest, but I’m happy with the quality given the under $200 price tag. I also tried a similar version from BlankNYC, which was a lot softer (but ran a size smaller). It was a tough choice but I went with this one because I preferred the gold hardware. I may get the sleeves tapered a bit and will do a before & after update if I do.
