Just purchased a Wilson Leather Jacket, advice please (pics)

Nov 04, 2012 @ 03:01

I purchased my first leather jacket today. I don't know anything about leather jackets. I went to the Wilson Leather store and they had this leather jacket http://www.wilsonsleather.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12260903&clickId=484913407&affiliateCustomId=&affiliateId=3656 for $180. I cannot decide if I should keep it or return it.

1. I tried on both the black and this light brown / tan (??), but my wife preferred the lighter one. Did I make a mistake by not buying the classic black?

2. Is the fit okay?

3. Is Wilson Leather an okay brand, for the price that I paid ($180)?

Should I keep it or return it?

Thanks guys!

return it not worth 180

sleeves are too baggy long

Actually 180 is about right since WIlson Leather sells ONLY GENUINE LEATHER.
Their fit is not slim fit or tailor fit. Their fit has always been "modern fit" or relax fit. Their fit is exactly like tommy hilfiger / ralph lauren.

The sleeves are meant to be that way because when wearing long sleeve shirts, it feels right. The leather jacket is meant to be layer on top.

Wilson leather age pretty good overtime, also when it comes to leather jacket or leather clothes, Wilson Leather is pretty good. Once of the few brands that sells genuine leather for a reasonable price.

Thanks guys for the feedback. Appreciate both of your responses.

After looking at some photos, I would like the jacket to fit more like the ones here: http://dapperkid.blogspot.com/2008/07/leather-jacket.html

I'm going to take it back to the store.

Does anyone know what brand the brown one on the site above is?
