Leather Jacket...
Lve love LOVE this look that Ashley Olsen is sporting. Have done similar myself, but rarely wear light sweatshirts. What I wonder is what brand do you suggest for the jacket (keeping it within the $150-250 range). The only leather jacket I own is far too fitted to fit a sweatshirt under comfortably. I suppose I need something slightly boxier... or should i get something only slightly fitted and perhaps size up in order to wear the sweatshirt underneath comfortably. If I do this, do you still think the jacket will fit nicely without the sweatshirt?

Any suggestions appreciated!

you should check out bluefly and overstock..
i dont know if they have that specific design that you are looking for, but they do carry tons of leather jackets... i believe they fall within your price range too.

dont size up on the jacket.. buy a fitted jacket (but obviously something thats not skin tight) and try to find a smaller/thinner sweatshirt.

the fit of the sweatshirt should be similar to the ones from a&f and ae, sans the fake vintage graphics.

buying a hooded l/s tee instead of the sweatshirt would be a good idea too. you can try american apparel.

Thanks. You're prolly right about not sizing up the jacket...that could just look awkward. It's hard enough to find ANY jacket long enough in the arms and yet still being fitted.


...I actually tried a sweatshirt under my scooter jacket. It was just a plain Hanes man's small...it worked alright, because they are thin and have a nice long length...now I just need the perfect jacket!

I love leather jackets. I'm especially nuts about mike & chris. It is funny that they're on the rise now, though. I'd been wanting one for several months and just recently got one.
