Back to School

This Week’s Look is back from summer vacation and the fall/winter shopping is already in progress. In preparation for the imminent seasonal shift, earlier this summer we scored a couple pairs of vintage, leather driving gloves and a 1970s caramel leather blazer at cheap heatwave prices. This jacket will probably top a black and white striped, long-sleeved, crew neck t-shirt and skinny jeans. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves here. There’s a heat wave presently plaguing us here in southern California, so we’re going to have to put those treasures on hold until further notice.

The rest of you, however, are already picking up on the first signs of autumn. Instagram is full of snapshots featuring falling orange leaves and light jackets. For you, this week we have curated a collection of vintage leather blazers, as seen on etsy and eBay. Click on each image below to see the individual listing.

The Sammy Miller

leave a comment »

When Sir Richard Branson made his inaugural tourist space flight in 2010, he wore a specially-made Belstaff jacket. Founded in England in 1924, Belstaff is famed for high-performance jackets, worn by motorcyclists and pilots. One of my favorites is Belstaff’s “Sammy Miller” biker jacket, named after the 1950s motorcycle legend. At $1085, the price tag is painful, but this is one of those jackets you will wear until death do you part, most likely diving out of an airplane or in a fiery motorcycle crash. Available on mrporter.com.
