I have finally found a motorcycle jacket that is nearly perfect in my eyes. Now that I have this I am worried if i'll be able to pull it off since I generally don't dress very edgy. What is everyone's opinion on a motorcycle jacket?

Can this be a timeless piece or just another trend?

I''m wondering if it's just got too much detail. The right side has quite a bit of zipper action (you can only tell when looking at my side view) and the sleeves when not rolled up are a bit too wide for my taste. I dont mind the sleeves since i can either get them taken in or just keep them rolled up.

Opinions please :)

Keeper for sure!!!!
I love it on you - both this particular style and the fit on you.

Black leather moto jacket is a wardrobe classic, always stylish, some years more in fashion than others. Look after it and you'll wear it for years :)

Thanks Straight-laced. I was worried that there was just too much zipper action going on. I am on the safe side when it comes to style (even though i LOVE the look on others).

It is quite zippy, but to my eye not distractingly so.
Also the silver tone zips can give matte black leather a lift and give life to a plain jeans & tee & leather jacket combo

From an outsider's perspective this jacket really suits you, but if you're not comfortable with it and think that it won't work out in the long run, return it & keep looking! There's no shortage of black leather moto jackets to choose from

I like the jacket a lot, looking for feedback to push me into a decision lol. I only have 5 more days to decide and will have to ship it back to Europe if it doesn't work.

So really hope I decide to keep so i don't have to pay the shipping back :)

I love it. I agree the extra zippers can look tacky if not done right, but in your case it does not look cheap. Keep it!

I say keep it :]
It fits you well & I like the fact that it is cropped because if you chose to wear it w/ skirts or more casual dresses, the proportions will look better (if that makes any sense) :]

I really like that on you, it's very flattering especially with the sleeves rolled up which makes it more casual and wearable.
I think the zippers are really nice and as xoxoCat said, it doesn't look cheap in this case.

I really like it
It does have many details but they are well balenced and it helps that the jacket is black. It looks great on you!

I think your jacket looks amazing. In fact I cant stop staring at it while its on you. It fits you perfectly. I think your made for this jacket. KEEP IT! It's gonna stay trendy many years down the road.
It's alright to have something edgy in your closet. It can jazz up a plain dress or plain outfit. Tossing on this jacket can add a great pop to your outfit.

Thanks everyone for the comments. It's really helping me with my decision!!! i'm 90% sure i want to keep it now, esp since shipping back plus export/import fees will be costly (got it from an online retailer in Europe)

Mas2388 you are good, this is balmain.
