Beats the heck out of me. I've watched the prices of bomber jackets all my life. Couldn't or wouldn't afford one when they were spendy, and now that everyone makes one and they're cheap don't want one. (I don't look good in Bomber jackets)
Am currently about to buy a cheap leather coat. I see coats for 400 and up but can't imagine why. The one I've my eye on is 89 bucks.
Anyway, I'm glad you asked this question because I'll be interested to learn of leather coats.
