Khaki vs Leather? NAH just gonna merge them...



So khaki and leather are kind of a big deal for AW12.
I did you all a massive favour and did a bit of research into khaki jackets with leather sleeves as I wanted to find out:
A) which stores sell them
B) what styles they are selling
C) what prices they are selling them for.

Obviously, the biggest contender is Primark with their £25 jacket. I mean that's a good bargainism right there. The Topshop and River Island jackets are very similar however I have to say the River Island one is my preferred choice out of the two as there is a greater contrast between the body and the sleeves, and I also prefer the pockets.

I REALLY like the ASOS blazer. I think it's a smart take on the trend and I think this would suit my style much more... particularly as it would be suitable to wear to work, whereas the others may be a bit TOO casual for work.

The Boohoo and Missguided jackets are OK however I prefer the River Island slant on the casual khaki and leather sleeved jacket and for £10-£15 extra I think it looks a better quality jacket.

So which jacket is your favourite? And are there any other places which do khaki/leather mix jackets that I've missed? If so, feel free to leave a link to it in the comments section so I can have a butchers :)

  2. I got my one from the teen section in Newlook for a bargain of £25 and then an additional 10% student discount off that, i think it's much nicer than the primark one and super comfy i got age 14-15 as the leather sleeves were quite tight on the 12-13yrs and i'm usually an 8-10 uk size! love the post hun, glad i saw this post on fbloggers tonight :D

      I loved the River Island one when I saw it! There's something about the sleeves I think! I agree it looks better quality! Wish I could afford it right now - I went for the New Look teens one just for budget reasons, but I'm really quite impressed with it :) xx

  4. I have hunted for the Primark version everywhere because it is a bargain and looks way better than the boohoo and missguided versions and maybe even the topshop one too. I have to say though, the river island one is definitey my favourite too :) xx
