I am going to New York in two weeks, which is a shopping-heaven, because I live in Norway… But, to the case; I am looking for a cool leather jacket, but I don´t know where to find it in New York. I don´t want to spend too much money on it, either. Help?

i’ve seen some cool ones at topshop and H&M. but wanting a real leather jacket is kind of a splurge. because quality = more money!

well, another option is faux leather. but it’s your choice!

Depends how important the quality is to you & how much you’re willing to pay. Topshop have real leather as well as PU jackets, which looks very similar to real leather & is much cheaper than the real thing – check out their website. However if the quality is really important, you could try vintage stores. Sorry I can’t recommend any, but I’ve never been to NY (hope to someday!).

i’ve got 2 great leather jackets from zara…one is more of a rick owens-type and the other is like a bomber that came with a removable fur collar. both were under $200. they have quite a few leather jackets in store right now: some moto jackets, and the TRF (?) section has one with a ribbed knit collar, cuffs and hem.

Yes, sometimes Forever 21, Zara, H&M carry real leather jackets. But even those are always from $100 – $200. In that case, I would just save and splurge on a Mike&Chris on sale. But your call!

i really recommend buying second hand, because you can pick up real leather ones for VERY cheap if you’re lucky.

Maria1703-
Go to Beacon’s Closet in Brooklyn- google it to get the address and take the L train (the Williamsburg store is bigger than the Park Slope one)

Thrifted leather jackets usually are too big or smell. So for leather jackets I’d either go to bufflo exchange or san fran for some deals on one.

I don’t know how much you are wanting to spend but i just got one at urban outfitters for $128 but i think nordstrom has some in their b.p. department for like $68. Hope that helps.

Since I am going soon, I just want to thank all of you for the help with the “chase” of my perfect leather jacket! This is going to make it so much easier to look now! I´ll get back to you with the result!

You should try eBay. I bought one for about $20 and I love it.
