I found the most amazing leather jacket I’ll never wear

And it’s this Tom Ford, Spring / Summer 2013 — Leather jacket


… except I’ll never ever spend all that money to wear something that is so clearly specific and out-there, it was still a nice piece I’d love to have in my closet and wear once in a while.

Nina Garcia on Project Runway Season 12 Episode 12 – Butterfly Effect was wearing it and I just fell in love with it.

And here it is on a model in Elle magazine, although she makes it look a bit trashy



Anyway, I like all the belts (obviously) and the skin cutouts on the arm… I’d just never buy it or wear it more than once or twice.

    How much is this jacket and where did you find it to purchase??

    I’ve had a girl crush on Nina Garcia since the beginning of PR. She is just so amazing. Yes, the cut-outs wouldn’t keep you very warm in Canada right? But I can actually see using this jacket on the west coast of the US a lot more but unzipped with a thin white ribbed tank and distressed jeans or over a floral print chiffon dress or a jersey knit dress with an asymmetrical hem. Black ankle booties with all three outfits.

    It’s nice to be able to admire design and not have to buy it necessarily.

      Well I’d only wear this jacket in Springtime or Autumn. It would NOT fly in winter 🙂

      Isn’t it gorgeous? I’d love to just wear it and take photos in it.

    I loved this jacket too! I have been looking for the designer everywhere. Thanks so much! Any idea on where you can purchase it online or at least look up the price? I have looked everywhere, but no one seems to sell Tom Ford clothes online or in stores. Any ideas?

      So this is from Tom Ford’s 2013 Spring/Summer line, which is already last season. My guess is that it’s sold out.. I can’t seem to find it anywhere 🙁

      You could try emailing Tom Ford themselves to see if it is still in stock.

    The “model” in Elle is Nikki Minaj – be default she is a bit trashy – even the jacket can’t save her:-)I think it fits a long lean body – otherwise it’s a bit S&M- no?

      I knew she looked familiar….!

      Yes the jacket is VERY S&M which.. oddly enough appeals to me somewhat. I like belted looks. 🙂

    I usually like your taste but this one – nah… Still, good thing we’re all different!

      Hahah! It is a bit out there, I know 🙂 I just love all the belts…

    It’s pretty rad but I feel like my arms would get cold — though if you wore it over a long-sleeve top it would look awesome.

      I kind of like the air flow…
