Reiss Leather Jacket Review – Perfect Wardrobe Staple

Black leather jackets are all year round essential that you can use to elevate your style, or you can wear it to change the style of your looks. You can also use it as a night time jacket. Most of us start with faux leather jackets, but as we get older, we want to make quality investments to our wardrobe, and that is exactly what I did. 

Reviewing the Reiss Leather Moto Jacket I bought as a wardrobe upgrade from a faux leather jacket that I already owned. I will also answer some of your biggest questions about whether you should spend that much money on just a jacket or whether this jacket is worth your money. 

 

Do You Really Need a Leather Jacket?

This is one of the most asked question, so let me share some benefits of buying a good quality black leather jacket:

  1. Leather is a long lasting material and requires less care compared to its faux leather version. Even if your leather shows signs of wear, it won’t tear or peel like faux leather material. A good leather jacket actually looks better as it ages. Ofcourse, you should also take care of it. 
  2. The material feels different than faux version. It just feels much more comfortable and less rigid compared to the non leather ones.
  3. A real black leather jacket will show more details and hence look much more expensive than the fake one. I instantly noticed this when I bought this jacket and compared to the faux leather ones I owned.
  4. With time, because of the material, the leather jacket relaxes and stretches making it even more comfortable. It kind of grows with you, just kidding.

Style Of The Jacket

I was on the look out for a Moto black leather jacket that is minimalist so it does not look too edgy or intense when I pair it with feminine outfits and workwear.  This jacket does not have a lot of hardware buttons, I love that the zippers are also almost invisible. And from the from view you cannot see the zippers on the arms or a lot of size pocket zippers. 

This is a common problem that I have seen in most leather jackets that steers me away from them. But this one caught my eye right away because of the simplistic style that compliments my outfits and not over power them. 

I am usually a size 6 o 8 in outerwear, but I purposely picked size 8 to give some room to this jacket and I was nervous that it will look bulky on the body. I was impressed with the style, even though you would think this jacket will look bulkier around the hip, it falls perfectly without making me look bigger.

This might be because of the excellent choice of the lining fabric which is lightweight and slimmer silhouette of the jacket.

Fit Of The Jacket

Length Of The Jacket

If you size up, a lot of leather jackets fit longer and then that looks too big on you. I am glad that this jacket did not do that. I was looking for a length that falls on my hip, not shorter or longer, this way, it looks relaxed but not oversized. 

And with this jacket, I just achieved that. If falls on my hip looking so chic and also looks like it fits me correctly and I didn’t borrow it from my older sister, hahaha. You know what I mean.

Feel Of The Jacket

You are always worried that leather jackets will be heavy and not at all comfortable. This jacket is completely opposite. Its pretty lightweight, it almost feels like wearing a blazer. Yes, its pretty lightweight. 

The brand has done such a good job in creating this design that helps keeping the jacket light and translates into an elegant look on anyone. 

The leather material is textured, but at the same time, the texture is not too evident. You only see the details from close up. But because of the texture, the jacket is not at all shiny, which is the biggest reason for me to keep it as well. And I have seen my fair share of leather jackets. 

Price Point Of the Jacket

What If you Are Petite?

Reiss makes a lot of similar styles of leather jacket. There is another version of this jacket called Gigi which you can also find in Nordstrom which is a cropped version of this jacket is perfect for Petites.
