Want Of The Day: Topshop Leather Biker Jacket

It’s a tough job to find a motorcycle jacket that does not look like it has been shot out of a cannon in the 1980s, but Topshop has come up with a fresh take on the design.

Honestly the look is more band than biker, but the asymmetrical zipper and the epaulet look, cropped sleeves and triangular frontal opening are quite flattering so we can overlook the naming error.

$310 isn’t a bad asking price at all for a jacket with this much detailing and attention put through during the design process.  I can imagine this sitting quite nicely over a pair of ultra skinny trousers and boots, or buckled sneakers for a more casual look.

Where’s the men’s version? That’s a decent price for a well-cut piece from a UK line that’s made in China.

This jacket is the closest the fellows are going to get. It’s pretty close design-wise, but it’s also $90 more; though it is Carolyn Massey’s design and constructed with super-soft lambskin (which is always a plus!)
