A Canadian's guide to jackets: the leather jacket

This is the twelfth post in my 'A Canadian's guide to jacket series'. 


THE FORECAST: Sunny and 16°C

THE OCCASION: Movie date

THE JACKET: Button-up leather jacket

Oh happy day!! Pulling this jacket out storage in the spring brings the biggest smile to my face. It's a telltale sign that summer is finally on its way! There are lots of high-quality imitation leather jackets out there. However, if you're not opposed to wearing the real thing, and if it's in your budget to invest in one, DO IT. This one is made of a buttersoft material and barely shows its age after five years of regular wear (I treat it regularly and dry-clean it very occasionally). It was a splurge that's been every bit worth the investment. 

In a leather jacket, I look for a reputable brand name, pliable and even-looking leather, secure stitching, a good fit, and fun details. With this jacket, I was drawn to the asymmetrical buttons, a blazer-like shape, and split seams on the cuffs. Dark brown is a colour that can be accessorized for spring with pastel hues and boyfriend jeans, or fall with a cozy scarf and boots.
