Leather Jackets
I've been looking for a leather jacket for the past few weeks with no avail. I am looking for something short and fitted. I'm not too picky, just no belts that tie. I'm thinking maybe something motorcycle inspired. I searched the forums for leather jackets but there didn't seem to be many posts on them and they were all old threads. I'm looking for something made well,that I can buy in Manhattan. I'm not into online shopping. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

My first thought was...Rick Owens!! PucciMama got one and it is TO DIE FOR. Im sure you can get it at like Jeffrey or maybe Esthete. Perhaps Barneys.

Last year I found a nice lambskin leather jacket from Andrew Marc at Filene's @ Union Square, Saks also sells his clothing.

There's a leather shop near 72nd+Broadway that has the most exquisite white motorcycle jacket. Also check out Goodwill and Salvation Army, they've got a bunch.

^the bad thing about the mike&chris leather jacets is that they are all hooded, which kind of takes away from the affect of a bomber jacket in my opinion.

there is a gorgeous leather biker jacket, real tight fitting in topshop at the moment for £100. for leather, that seems quite affordable. i seriously covet it, it makes me sad everytime i see it and know i can't afford it still

If there's one thing I want this winter, it's a black leather bomber jacket. I've yet to recieve.. I also need grey jeans to go with it.

I absolutely love the Vince jacket, I can't find a pic of it but its the brown one in the last scene of Devil wears prada.

I am torn between Vince and Mike and Chris jackets.
