30 thoughts on “Shopping for Your First Leather-based Jacket

  1. I've just brought a leather jacket and the sleeves just fit when my arms are at my side, but if I life my hand I can see my watch without even trying. I would love the sleeve to be longer, as I'm pretty tall; 27" would've been great, as apposed to the 26" I have. I was thinking of sending it back, but I'm not sure if this may change with my braking the jacket in. What do u suggest? I have to make up my mind within 14 days.

  2. STOP BUYING LEATHER
    ANIMALS GETS ABUSED AND DIE EVERYDAY BECAUSE WE BUY LEATHER. BTW, LEATHER DOES NOT COME JUST FROM COWS, IT COMES FROM CATS, DOGS, ALIGATORS,SHEEP,RABBIT AND MANY MANY MORE. YOU SERIOUSLY THINK YOU WANT TO CONTINUE TO SUPPORT THESE ABUSES JUST FOR THEIR SKIN?

  3. I didn't know the sizing part and got my first butter leather jacket a nice size or two large. It missed the boat for a long while before I got it altered. These days leather seems passe' all my later leather jackets became dated fast too.

  4. It's very simple when you think about it. Leather jackets are rather pricey, and kids and teens grow fast. You buy a fitting leather jacket for a 15 year old and it would already be too small for him in half a year or in a year's time. That's why you wait until he's 20s, that's when his growth spurts have already stopped.

  5. Nothing wrong with leather if it is made from cowhide or even skins from fish. We eat their flesh anyways, using their skin for clothing is just another resourceful option to fully utilize their bodies without wastes.

  6. i don't do leather. i rather polyester or nylon. it's sleaker plus that way we don't mess with animals and their skin just saying

  7. Step one: Avoid the store.
    Step Two: Slap yourself for considering a leather jacket.
    Step Three: If you buy a leather jacket, refer to step two.
