I stumbled on this charcoal leather jacket for almost half off the original price. It could be a contender for my wardrobe. I have looked at multiple grey leather jackets with design flaws or major fit issues. I had pretty much given up my hunt and moved grey leather jacket to my HEWI list. Then on cue, one appears that could work. The leather is butter soft and light weight. I have never purchased any Bernardo Brand items before but the quality seems good. The stitching looks even and strong. It is nicely lined. This is a size small, which was the smallest size they had available when I ordered. It might be a smidge big for me in the torso. I cinched in the side tabs and snapped them to the smallest fit possible. This creates some odd wrinkles and pulls in the leather that show up more towards my shoulders and look almost like folds, but I'm not sure I mind that because there is plenty of room for a sweater. I like the color much more than I anticipated although maybe it's a skosh dark? The jacket length is hard to see because of the tunic I wore today but the waist band hits perfectly at the band of my high rise jeans. (Which are sort of mid rise looking on me.) THE SLEEVES!! WOW! They are miraculously long enough. Maybe they are too long! A First!!!

So dear YLF friends, should I keep it or send it back and keep looking?
