Leather jackets can easily run into triple digits — as we learned when we asked nine fashion-conscious people, from stylists to editors and curators, to give us their favourites. However, while scrolling through the ASOS sale this morning, we spied this Barney’s Originals leather jacket on sale for £90 (down from £290) — available in a wide range of sizes.
A note on buying: Although new leather can feel stiff, part of the beauty of owning a leather jacket is that the more you wear it, the softer and more fitted the leather will become, gradually taking the shape of your body. The stiffer the leather, the longer this will take, and although you could buy vintage to circumnavigate this, it’s satisfying to slip into a jacket that you have worn in perfectly.
