Tonight on the blog I have a local leather brand to talk to you about - behold, my new suede jacket! I kindly got gifted this piece from Barney's Originals, who are based right here in the heart of Manchester. The weather has recently taken a turn for the worst and got a lot colder. Where has the British summer gone? Cold, in August?! It's not ideal. So, with the weather not being on my side I had to reach into my wardrobe for a jacket and luckily Barney's came through!

My heart was disappointed when having to dress for the autumn already, but as soon as I put this jacket on I didn't mind as much. This sexy suede is exactly what I've been looking for! It's not an 'out there' jacket, it doesn't scream 'look at me', but when you do take a glance you soon realise it's fucking cool piece. The jacket is very sleek, stylish and understated. It's like a silent assassin, it slowly kills the game.

I rooted for the small and it fits like an absolute dream, the arms and shoulders of the jacket particularly feel like it's been tailored to me. The small collar line is also very cool, nothing fancy but does the job perfectly. The suede the jacket is made from is soft to the touch and smells amazing, I also love how jet black the suede looks, especially contrasting with those brushed YKK zippers.

The other small detail on the jacket that caught my eye is the triangular fastening on the bottom of the jacket that hides the start of the silver metal zipper and the pointed fastening found on the cuffs of the jacket, I love the shape of these fastenings and the attention to detail on the jacket.

Zipped up or down, the jacket looks insane and I just love the simplicity of it. As you can see the jacket looks sweet with a pair of classic black skinnies, but I bought another new piece into this look with a shirt I picked up from work. This Phix Clothing shirt looked awesome under the black suede jacket featuring the strong monotone zebra pattern.

I've never had quilting in any jacket of mine so this was quite a surprise for me, however, I actually think it brings something to the jacket. Firstly, a point of difference and secondly practicality as this jacket will keep you warm on colder days. The inside pockets are also quite handy with one on each side, one with a zip for money essentials and the other left open for more accessible items like your mobile.

I paired the jacket with complementing suede boots from @fromthefirst and my buckle belt which was given to me by the guys at @Savage__offficial. I think this outfit is very cool and one I'll be wearing a lot, when topped with my trusty black fedora I can't go wrong.
