I did it, I bid adieu to my quest on finding the be-all-end-all moto leather jacket. Ultimately I settled for the first option that was on the table. I had to do minor tweak that I was very adamant of not doing but I decided to make peace with myself. There’s no need to spend more time and energy for just one piece of clothing. There needs to be a balance of effort for finding the holy grail without going mental. I’m pretty sure Deo is already sick and tired of me asking for his opinions on the 1000th leather jacket. He gave good pointers but I got too overwhelmed with the sea of options that I ended up neglecting his choices.
So I went to the MANGO store and purchased their basic moto leather jacket. I went for the MANGO version because of the lack of the belt (although now I kinda want one with the belt too) as well as the price point. I also watched someone on YouTube who really enjoys the quality of her MANGO leather jacket. All Saints is a good brand for leather jackets as some people mentioned. But there are so many trips ahead of me that I can’t justify spending 400 euros for a jacket.
Ever since buying the jacket, the jacket and I have become one. It’s a bit silly really, but I have been looking for multiple ways to incorporate the jacket into my outfit every single day. My colleagues told me that I’m crazy for wearing my leather jacket underneath my coat, but I just want to wear my jacket you know?!
