For a couple of years now, I’ve been on the hunt for a leather moto-style jacket. I wanted a simple design, great fit, not too much hardware or detailing, and a soft, light weight leather. Nothing I tried met all of those criteria.
It turns out my perfect leather moto jacket wasn’t leather at all, but rather a waxed cotton twill. This is actually a much better choice for our climate than leather, and is machine washable!
Jacket: Eileen Fisher / Tank: Eileen Fisher / Jeans: Eileen Fisher (I’m nuts about these jeans too) / Boots: several years old, similar / Sunglasses: Chanel, similar / Earrings: Argento Vivo, similar / Cuff: vintage Hermès, from Beladora, similar.
Check back next week for more on non-leather moto jackets, and some thoughts on styling them. (Yes, even for the office!)
Do you have a moto-style jacket? Is it leather of another material?
