In case you share my unaccountable obsession with Blue Leather, here's the perfect jacket. It's a good 1970s style in a light navy, or French blue supple, slightly glossy, leather, with a wide lapel, three buttons, a single vent and slanted front pocket flaps. The burgundy acetate lining (some variation in tone/ fading) looks great when the sleeve is a bit rolled up, as shown here. This is great with almost anything since it's loose fitting, in fact may be a men's but I can never remember which way round the buttons go, so if you care and you know, please see the pix here. It's made in Mexico: Industria Peletera.
Measurements: chest 40", shoulder 16", length 30"
STORY: My unaccountable obsession with navy leather sort of wore off. Also leather. I don't really like leather jackets on me.
