I think, since I was about 13, I have probably owned about 6 leather jackets, all in different styles depending on what style I was trying out at the time.
The predominant thing that sticks in my mind when thinking about buying a leather jacket or coat is that they will cost quite a bit more than your average coat or jacket.
IL2L.com has a vast selection of leather jackets, whether classic styles or more on trend pieces, to suit all budgets and sizes. I particularly liked the range of jackets which could easily be mistaken for vintage pieces, but which cost half the price of buying from a specialist retro clothing store. And there aren't just black or brown colourways either- for bolder people there are reds, greys and blues too, with many jackets coming in at least 2 colourways.
Again, like with other reviews of sites which you buy from online and cant try before you buy, it is always a little bit of a challenge to see what you are buying. But IL2L have a great feature whereby you can enlarge and zoom over the image, and the images are all clear and give back and front views of the jackets without them being worn by a skinny model.They also offer free delivery and returns. The jacket I tried was of very good quality, and arrived gift wrapped, so these can also be bought as an alternative present for Christmas.
Another great feature is that you can find coats, scarfs and other accessories available too, which can be easily matched up with the accompanying suggestions with the coats available. Handbag lovers will love the huge range of colours and styles of bag available from names such as Kipling, Fiorelli, and Ringspun.
And prices? Well, most jackets cost under £150, and with a special sale section including on site, there something for most budgets.
A very good site which makes buying leather coats, which in themselves can be worn again and again, hassle free.
