i've always wanted a leather motorcycle jacket. i've owned a leather blazer, i have a leather bomber that i love but i'm still searching for that perfect looking biker jacket. one that will fit perfectly off the rack would be an impossible find and an unrealistic expectation especially given my shorter frame and curvier shape; tailoring after a purchase is inevitable. i'm also really particular about the appearance of the hardware-it must be silver, on the obnoxious tip, and almost garish. i don't want ties, i don't want studs or spikes (surprisingly because i love them when used with restraint) and i don't want it cropped or very fitted.
below are various colours and cuts of motorcycle jackets that i just love. in a perfect world i would own every single one. in a perfect world i would also be able to afford every single one. the first two acne jackets seem to fit my ideal but the rita (first one) is just a touch too boxy, and i don't fancy the small pocket detail on the mape (second one) but only as a first jacket for me to own. i think the best solution to my moto conundrum is to have a talented designer friend do a custom biker for me...
