Trouvé Draped Leather Jacket
Great lightweight jacket
I was looking for a light weight leather jacket for months and this is it. The leather is so soft and fits like a glove. Great casual/work jacket.
Thought I would love it, but it has a few issues.
The sizing on this jacket was a little off, I'm used to wearing a sm, but was not sure of sizing so I ordered a small and a med. The sleeves on both were on the long side, but because of the knit on the underside I just flipped the extra length in and it stays in place. Depending on tailoring cost I'd consider having it hemmed, if it does not destroy the knit portion, there is a knit underside to the sleeve.
The small came like it had been unpacked and hung, like you would see in the store, sadly it was just a bit snug. The med, came in a plastic bag, wrinkled and stunk like day old lamb. Also there was a difference in the quality of the leather b/w the two jackets.
So while the small is just a touch snug, I'm hoping it stretches a little like most leather does, I'm keeping the small (it has the better leather).
I did not care for the suede underside of the lapels since the color is so different and very noticeable, I ordered the brown. But the color of the finished side is gorgeous, a perfect camel.
Overall if the 2nd coat did not smell or come so wrinkled and the finish of the underside of the lapels were better I'd give this 5 stars.
The look of this jacket is just what I was looking for, so I can deal with the minor problems.
So glad I went for it!
I've been looking for a leather jacket for some time and have tried on many styles, none of which have been quite right: leather too stiff, bulky neckline, ill proportioned, uncomfortable to move in. I discovered this one and wouldn't have normally gone for the style (e.g., would the draping down the front add unwanted volume?) but based on the other reviews I decided to take a chance. Exceeded my expectations! It's lightweight with nice seaming and fit, the arms are long, and the draping adds an interesting detail without overwhelming the front. The leather is yummy - extremely soft and comfortable to move in, and the color is gorgeous. A keeper the minute I tried it on.
Wasn't sure about this jacket because the picture don't help to much so I decide to check in the store ...... I love it , it's Beautiful , soft, the color is great you can use wherever you want, for go to work ,go to the movie, brunch , etc.
Plus this jacket looks the same from Camila and Marc jacket $995 ( you can check in People Style Watch) .
I recommend 100%
