(It's Banana Republic's Black Leather Buckle Moto Jacket. Out of stock, so I can't find a link to it on their site.)

Hi! This is another emotional purchase, but it's something I can use, and the other jacket purchase has already transformed my wardrobe functionality so much, and added so much happiness, that I'm willing to fork over the steep amount I'd be paying for this. It really has to be a 10 though. It would be my last leather jacket for a while, most likely.

Sorry I haven't styled it more imaginatively but I just want people to weigh in on whether it looks nice on me (or rather, "killer" and whether you think it looks not like "me."

Also the fit...but to me it feels like it fits very well. Zipped up, it's less snug than the green jacket, and this leather breathes a lot more.

I couldn't get a good pic of the back, but it feels like it fits well.

The pic with my hand is indicating where my natural waist is. Clearly on me it's not cropped, which I don't mind. But if the cut isn't flattering, let me know!

It's a light- to mid-weight jacket for me. I don't need sweaters underneath. These days I'm running warm.

But again, is it that awesome? Or will another equal or better jacket come along for less? I do really like it. I'm also wanting to know if Banana Republic quality should be really good here (Angie, are you familiar with this jacket?)

Does the color wash me out or look harsh? (On edit, I had always assumed I'd be prioritizing the purchase of a rich brown-colored jacket, because of my hair and my eyes. I do love black, and have plenty of things that would match with it too.)

Is it too shoulder-y on IT me?

What else? I wish I had better pics.

I think I got a crush on this jacket from the way it's styled in the website pic.

Thanks for all your help!
