fake leather jacket''?? sorry, I put a dis-like because a serious channel should never recommend a synthetic leather jacket by ZARA. I am going to un-subsribe

The only thing you need to know about leather jackets is "Aero Leather" of Scotland. You're welcome.
wilsjane (2 months ago)
+jason freese. Aero leathers are awesome. I wore my horsehide jeans when we were putting out a grass fire and despite being bombarded with sparks and burning embers for more than an hour, they were not damaged. At one point, I had to run through knee high flames. Have you ever worn your Aero leathers for rough wear.?

For some reason I never know what shoes to wear with my leather jacket. Whenever I wear some type of leather shoe, I feel like it's leather overkill. No?
Björn Follin (7 months ago)
I think you should have recommended a real moto leather jacket besides the Zara one.
theLastQuerty (7 months ago)
I don't mean to offend you but I personally find your fashion advice bland. Yeah, this might be great advice for a 40 year old man but for a young guy, a dress shirt, trousers, and dress shoes is boring. We want to have more of a rugged look which will set us apart from the same old same old you see everyday. And im not super trendy either, I like classic style, but you can only wear so much business casual.

If you've got the dosh, try Lewis Leathers. It's a London boutique that's been selling motorcycle leathers since way-back-when.

Stopped listening when she said that biker jackets aren't the best
Zachary Wheeler (10 months ago)
Biker jacket paired with white shirt, trousers, and tie is a very confusing outfit. It's like Phil from accounting all of sudden is trying to look badass simply by wearing a leather biker jacket. Biker jackets should be worn casually. Well fitting jeans paired with boots and well fitting T-shirt or henley. That's all you need.
Björn Follin (7 months ago)
If he skipped the tie and switched to a button down shirt it would look fine.

Recently I found a great, nicely fitting jacket but I couldn't quite decide whether to go for grayish brown or black version. Then came the lady's quote: "You'll look sharp but not like you're trying too hard". This! That's all I needed to hear.

Asasdujaman Sagor (1 year ago)
they've just single handedly ruin the fame of leather jacket lol
calendil (1 year ago)
A person who is modelling for a jacket shouldn't push his shoulders back stick out his chest. This puts the focus on tie and the shirt. Hence the bad comments below about the tie being awkward. When he is showcasing a jacket, especially a leather jacket, he should push his shoulders in front, close the gap between two sides of the jacket and stress shoulders/arms.

Biker jackets are hard to carry off unless the motorbike is nearby. Bombers jacket however does not required to be by the airfield to pass it off, or you could be a retired airmen. USAF.

All Saints has a blazer style one called the "survey" that I'm considering. Since you mentioned biker, bomber and racer style I'm curious if you have thoughts on that one?

calendil (1 year ago)
Depends on the situation, if you are a sales guy or a some person who works in a business casual environment you can approach from that angle when you are on a date, and to stress it you may mention that you are coming directly from an important meeting and also talk about it in the dinner date (preferably in a classy restaurant) this is a good demonstration of classiness. You may find it cool or stupid but the point is, some women dig it. Granted you should wear a sports jacket or a blazer with it, not a leather jacket.

Ashley how would you think a leather jacket should fit ?

Just got an Allsaints jacket this Christmas, love it.
Gaelen Smith (1 year ago)
Ya broke my heart with the biker jacket hate! Get yourself a schott perfecto and wear it with everything. Impossible to look bad in, and there's a reason its what comes to mind when you hear "leather jacket"! forever timeless and sexy. Since I got mine last year, I haven't taken it off! Make Marlon Brando happy and give it a chance! :,,,,) still love your videos. :*
Hood Saint (4 months ago)
i think wearing it all the time makes it seem like you can't afford another jacket lol
HeroicBrutality (1 year ago)
I bought a frock coat made from pleather and wool recently and I love it. It's got a biker like feel to it and probably one of the most "tough guy" looking coat I've ever got.

DL (2 years ago)
super helpful. I actually thought black leather was out of style. It's been heartening to hear from a couple of sources that it assuredly is not. I found a second hand designer black motocross very reasonably, just needed the sleeves shortened which my tailor did. I do ride motorcycles, so it seemed an honest choice. I did not realize how 'formal' these could be rocked. Very helpful vid Ashley thank you.

I was thinking about buying a leather racing jacket(http://shop.rogue.us.com/moto-cafe-racer.html) because of its ability to be dressed up more than the other ones kinds that I've seen. Do you think the paneling on the shoulders and back of the one in the link make it more difficult to wear it formally?

I picked up a brown leather jacket from a vintage clothing store a few years back. It's one of my favourite pieces of clothing that I own. I actually like it when winter comes around so that I can wear it.
Urias Jimenez (2 years ago)
Something is different with Ashley. She seemed a bit more serious/mature than her other laid back and playful videos. Her makeup looks great! All this was meant to be a positive comment...
Urias Jimenez (2 years ago)
Lol, no, it's not horrible. Even given tha it was your first video, it is very good. It just caught me off guard when a suddenly saw a formal/serious Ashley. Nothing wrong with it, it was actually good to see that side too :) Thanks for all the advice.

$250 because it is made by real leather.
jeremydizon (2 years ago)
hence the $250 price. Topman, much like H&M, arent known to make a lot of leather jackets and when they do they are in these $250-$300 price range which is cheap for a real leather material so with that they sacrifice a bit of quality in the construction and quality of leather. But go up higher in the $400-$500 range and you can get excellent leather jackets from Massimo Dutti.
D N (2 years ago)
but the third jacket looks like a 40 dollar jacket and not a fucken 250 dollar jacket jeezus
bostoncelticspride5 (2 years ago)
Hey Ashely, All saints has recently discontinued their griffin jacket. Now, I've contacted them and told them it's popular and should bring it back. And they told me they give fan feed back to their production company. So I was wondering if you could contact all saints and let them know. Maybe someone with as much pull as you can help bring that awesome style of jacket back so me and many others can buy one! :)

I am a very casual dresser, and I like to layer clothing. Do you think a leather jacket with a hoodie is a good look? They make those fake ones(where its not an actual hoodie, and is connected to the jacket), so obviously there's some popularity to it. Just curious what your opinion on it was, and maybe what type of leather jacket or other jackets you think go well on top of a hoodie. Thanks, and great job on the video =)
Caleb Alfaro (2 years ago)
I like the motorcross jacket. But holy Crap that bomber jacket has always been my Fav. I just love it! To bad I cant find one like that where am at. Well I guess If I go to other towns I will eventually find it. But its almost mission impossible at this point. sigh

check the web, many sites (at least in my country) allow you to send it back if it doesn't fit you/you don't like it. Some even pay for the return. But google first so you know other people have done it without any hassel.

Personaly, i find synthetic leather a lot harder to wear because it tends to get a lot hotter than real leather. (I own a synthetic leather jacket and a motorcycle leather jacket)
giro227 (2 years ago)
what are you for real? there is a difference between a fake and a real, the fake one will loose the color and start getting ugly, while a high quality real leather jacket with the right treatment can last for many years,

Fake leather!???
andrea inzaghi (2 months ago)

Gavin Pais (1 year ago)
Check us out. We source Full Grain Leather materials combined with the best craftsmanship. http://www.ebay.com/usr/tinker00
I'd recommend getting one if you dont wanna dig too deep in the piggybank. Fake leather is cheap and a good op if you're shopping on a budget but the downside is it doesn't look nearly as good as real leather and it won't age well like real leather, it'll only really last you a year or two before falling apart. A good real leather jacket will last a lifetime if you look after it. But it's your call mate
