A few weeks ago I talked about finding the perfect motorcycle jacket. I definitely don't think this is an easy process and similar to finding a perfect fitting jean, this can take a while and usually you have to try several in person to make sure it's just right. Right before my birthday, Clay and I popped into All Saints to look at sweaters for him. I wasn't interested in shopping for myself but then I happened upon a few of their leather jackets. Even on the hanger they looked amazing. I was encouraged to try on a few and was surprised to find that their fit was almost perfect. This is rare for me since I have a smaller ribcage so most jackets end up looking oversized on me. I don't even want to tell you how many coats I've ordered online and had to return immediately. A lot.
This is my first real leather jacket, and even though it was a gift, I definitely would have bought it on my own. Leather jackets can be like jeans.. you end up needing more than just one. Your classic all around jacket, a cropped one, a colored one, an edgy one, a minimalist one. This jacket, The Cargo falls into the category of a 'classic' one. It fits perfectly, has a nice worn in look and minimal embellishments. I've also got my eye on their 'Belvedere' jacket, which is a bit more sleek and has an amazing upstanding collar detail. In case you are wondering for size, I'm wearing a size 0 and while this is a bit pricier, around $500, it's relatively cheaper for leather than a brand like Vince or Theory.
