I'm rather partial to the absolute tackiness of the Burberry snakeskin motorbike jacket (lllipgloss.com):

Although not really my style, the Junya Watanabe ones are superdreamy.

iluvjeisa, you rock for posting that Suede video... so incredibly hot!!!

I haven't found my ideal motorcycle leather jacket yet. Actually, those I do like are completely out of my budget, so for now I can only admire this one by Acne from my computer screen.

^Acne have done such wonderful biker jackets this season, the sheepskin ones they've done are absolutely amazing and gorgeous!

Mulberry have done some absolutely dreamy biker jackets this season - shame about the price (Burgundy is £795 and the Sheepskin is £2,000)

True leather motorcycle jackets are not in my budget right now, but I did get a very inexpensive version last year (Spring 2010) when Lauren Conrad for Kohl's produced one. It's faux-leather, and the cut is pretty nice! Now that it's slowly been cooling down here, I've been itching to wear mine again this fall.

^I love that.

I'm also loving Lot78's jackets, starting alittle cheaper than an All Saint's leather which isn't bad.

Same here! It's something I went looking for through thrift stores for years, but the ones I liked really didn't fit me...So I'm letting this on my "when I make more money" wishlist. And I hope I will actually make more money soon enough

I've never really wanted a biker jacket. I've always felt that it was a bit too rock'n'roll for me, but I've been thinking about getting one for a while now, thinking I could pair it with more feminine pieces.
I guess it's practical aspect has lured me in. :p

H&M has one that I want to have a closer look at, I like that it's quite simple and has a more relaxed fit.
That it's in my price range doesn't hurt either

I don't necessarily see motorcycle jackets as "rock and roll." Of course, you all are more involved and in tune with rock culture than I am. The only way I see these jackets as being not as stylish or cool is if you think these jackets bring out posers/poseurs in people. I have always seen motorcycle jackets por femmes as a way to toughen up cute looks without being super-tough or fierce. Especially a nice cropped motorcycle jacket can be good with a dress or a top + jeans combo. Still stylish to me.

i have tried on so many but none of them ever work...
......

i finally tried on one at uniqlo that worked---yes, i said uniqlo...
...

it's pleather, but i don't think i care...
i figure, if junya and rei can do pleather, so can i...
what matters is the fit...
and japanese stuff just fits me really well, esp in the shoulders...
*tops and jackets...

...

plus- it was practically free...


and the way i dress...
everyone thinks my pleather is real and that my faux shearling is real...etc...
and i love telling them it's not...
you should see their faces...
