It's so generic looking it could be any brand on the high street. I wouldn't be dropping £525 on it.

Nay - nay on suede jackets in general. Made to only break your heart as they get trashed so easily.

I am after something minimal looking but well made. Any suggestions?

went into reiss today. I'm surprised it's still going tbh, seems to be from another era and doesn't know who it's appealing to.

I thought they had some decent gear in there last time I went in. Better than I remembered.

I took MoB's advice and had a look at some high street stores for a suede bomber. I ended up getting something very similar to the NN07 jacket in M&S for £129 (head to nankid thread). I have to say, despite my reservations about getting a jacket from that particular store, it's actually pretty decent for the money. I doubt anyone would notice much of a difference between the two in real life.

I also looked at the GATs when I was there - looked a bit shit as not real leather.

Turns out it appeals to *provincial wally who shops in out-of-town retail park*. No surprises.

Back in the hunt for a suede bomber. I know All saints doesn't get any love on here but wondered about this one in the grey:

Had a look in store. Feels really nice and is a good fit.
