Like someone said above, I prefer a motorcycle jacket with a detachable lining so you can lighten it up for spring and the warmer days in fall.

sethii, i think you will be dissapointed with mine haha. it is a proper flying jacket so it is pretty thick. it is not shearling, it is sheepskin. not as thin as the sartorialist pic

i dont have my own pic but this is the jacket i got

^ I like it - simple and traditional. The overblown Burberry style is fun but it's hardly versatile.

Not a fan of that one, the pockets are really unsightly.

I'm not really a fan of aviators for woman. I first saw them on the runways last year for men and I loved how they were masculine and rugged looking. The female versions seem too boxy on the female figure i.e. Anne Hathaway. The one pictured on The Sartorialist is ok but it looks denim to me...

It's one of those things that some people can pull off looking chic and up-to-date, but some people look like aviation posers when they wear it.

I'm in Berlin at the moment and Mango have the most amazing ones for women but priced at 499 for a jacket and 700 for more of a coat length one - its gorgeous. I'm just not sure if I want to pay that much for something that might go out of fashion in the next year, particularly since I'm based in Melbourne for majority of the year.

What do you rate this trends staying power?

Probably 1 or 2 seasons- max

I would advise to save your money especially given that your based in Melbourne. Melbourne is so warm. You not often need to buy winter clothes. Trans-seasonal wear and layering does the trick most of the year
