Hooded Vegan Leather Jacket
what an amazing value!!
I have been looking for a replacement leather jacket for over two years now with no luck. The last one I purchased was also faux leather, from UO, which I think I spent like $150 on. It lasted quite a while for faux (3+ years) but I decided I was ready for a more grown-up, higher quality, real leather jacket that would be a long lasting piece in my wardrobe. And I searched and searched. And was willing to spend upwards of $600... with no finds. Nothing that was just the right cut/style I was looking for.
Then I saw this jacket. I was initially turned off by the fact that it was vegan, just because in my head, that translated to cheaper and not long lasting. But... I am vegetarian and the thought of no animals dying for my materialism did make me feel much better about the purchase. And then I started reading the reviews. Thank goodness for them! They assured me, why not take a chance? Finally the fact that the only size available happened to be mine, a 10, clinched the deal.
I opened up my FP package today and am amazed. It's absolutely LOVELY. And honestly, looks and wears like a $500 leather jacket. The sleeves are fitted, the draping of the front of the jacket is extremely flattering on my larger bust line, and I love that the hardware is brass and not the typical shiny silver. I didn't realize the hood itself is a grey wool, but it actually makes it kind of a point of interest.
To make a very long story short(er), this jacket RULES. If you happen to find one in your size, ORDER IT NOW. The worst that can happen is you're not a fan, and you send it back. For free. The Free People design team have done it again. A crazy talented crew fo sho!!
couldn't be happier!
After a much anticipated wait, my jacket arrived in the mail yesterday and I could hardly hold in my excitement while opening it. The leather is soft and realistic, it even smells like real leather and the wool hood is thick and structured. It really is worth every penny! I was hesitant when ordering the size because I wanted to avoid a return if possible... I ended up ordering a 6 and the size is great! I have a very slim build (but am somewhat chesty) and am 5'2 about 110 pounds. There is enough room that it doesn't feel tight in any places but doesn't look too big either, I can easily bundle a thick wool scarf or light sweater underneath. If you are unsure about what size to order, I would go up a size! Happy ordering! xx
Too Cool for School
This jacket is way too cool. It looks like real leather and is so comfortable to wear. I get tons of compliments on it and people are always so surprised when I tell them it's not real leather. It is not the warmest thing ever. I run cold, so as much as I love it, when it drops below 45, this jacket goes back in the closet.
This is the best jacket ever! It fits perfectly and looks great. The crazy thing is that it actually not only looks like real leather, it also SMELLS like leather! I'm not sure how long the smell will last but when a jacket looks this good, it doesn't matter to me. If you see this jacket in your size, BUY IT!
Best. Jacket. Ever.
This is the PERFECT leather jacket. I saw it at my FP store, tried it on and had to get it.
Unlike most leather jackets which give you kind of a "box"-y shape, this jacket is beautifully designed to be narrow at the waist to create that perfect hourglass shape. It keeps your curves while "fixing" any problem areas thereby giving you a great figure. Also, it makes me look about 10 pounds thinner.
Its comfortable and warm. I love the hoodie, which is hard to find in most leather jackets. Also, it looks waayy more expensive than it is so even though it might be more than you'd like to spend, its worth every penny.
The only thing I don't like is that unlike a lot of jackets that hit at right above the hips, this one doesn't look great open (it looks pretty much like it does in the picture which I'm not a big fan of). That might just be me though. Besides, I plan to wear it zipped up during the winter anyway.
Its pretty much true to size, but if you're between sizes I'd suggest going up because it is a little snug.
I love this jacket so hard!
My only complaint is the sleeves are a little snug, I don't have toothpicks for arms so wearing tees or sweaters underneath can be uncomfortable. I imagine the sleeves will stretch a little over time though. Aside from that I love this jacket!!!!!!
I have watched this jacket go in and out of stock at least 3 times, when it came back about a month ago I decided I would finally get it for myself for my birthday. 3 weeks later I finally received the jacket and it doesn't fit! I usually wear an 8 or 10 so I went with a 10 and my DD chest doesn't fit and the arms are also a bit tight. I'm so sad, everything I've ever gotten off this website has fit wonderfully, sometimes things are even too big but not this time. I wanted this jacket for months and now I can't wear it unless I get breast reduction surgery! So big chested girls beware! I still gave it 3 stars because it is of beautiful quality.
Best leather jacket I own. So comfy and keeps me warmer than I thought. Get it before its too late :)
