I can neither afford nor pull off leather. So this is my take on a motorcycle jacket:
The fabric was a tablecloth I found at Salvation Army. It's super soft! The zipper was bought off Etsy and it's amazing, and I have three more and I can't wait to use them!
Jacket, made by me (with the help of this).
PS: Even if I can't pull off leather, I am determined to wear it anyway! (I just need to find some!)
PPS: I'm buying leather studs to DIY with too, as many many many MANY other bloggers are.
PPPS: I officially don't care about what I can and cannot perceivably (?) pull off. I'm gonna wear what I want and I'm gonna like it. :]
