Looking for something to wear just over a t shirt around spring and probably on colder days of summer..

Been racking my brains but all I can think is keep checking TK/H&M.. I live in Leeds if anyone is familiar with the place, cause I'd much rather try on before buying..

Thanks for any ideas Smiling

Ahh meant to post something like that in the op, wouldn't really wanna spend more than £100, but if I had to have it, I could stretch to £150 i'm sure..

h&M and leather should not be in the same sentence

If you're not willing to drop same cash on a leather jacket then it's all a bit pointless. Say for example in the space of 6 years you buy 3 low quality leather jackets for £150 each. You'll have spent £450 in total. Now, if you buy right, you can buy a great quality leather jacket for £450 that can last years and will look better as it ages. Start saving !

You can get a decent second hand leather for £150 if you shop the classifieds here and ebay for a few months. But you will only get wank leathers new.

BS are shite. Used to be pretty good but use weird washed scrote leather by the looks of things. Zara leathers vary massively in quality and fit but are occasionally great for the money.

Don't bother getting a leather for £100-£150. Will be terrible quality and construction. Leather is something that has to be done right. Save up for the sales.

Good idea Carl. The man who doesn't really want to stretch to £150, but is considering saving up £450, should probably spend 1.5k on it instead.

You just make this up carl, for starters AW13 lookbook is not even out and prices will no doubt get higher. Will need at least 1k for new UC AW13 leather even from JP.

For the first year or so Black Scissors used lamb nappa leather and quality wise it was superb imo (butter soft).

They then shifted production and the quality dropped. I believe they use pig leather now

If you can find on ebay an early BS leather id go for that
