I bought this jacket in August, in the middle of a heat wave, for a song. Hands down, one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. I walked into Wilson’s Leather with a vision of the perfect jacket. I fully expected to be in and out of the store but I happened to walk into the middle of their summer sale.
After explaining exactly what I was looking for the wonderful sales associate brought me four or five options. I was shocked at how right on his choices were, this guy really knew women’s jackets. I’d narrowed it down to two, expensive (perfect) vs reasonable (pretty close) when another customer approached the salesman helping me. She wanted the jacket I was wearing, the expensive perfect one, but since I was wearing it I had first dibs.
Without taking the jacket off I had the sales associate scan it so I could see the sale price. I nearly kissed the guy when I realized it was over $250 off the original price. I paid without hesitation, apologized to the other woman, and wore my perfect leather jacket out of the store and into the 98+ degree August sun with a huge smile on my face.
It was hard for me to wait till fall to wear it again so when the first hint of cold crept into the air I pulled out this jacket and haven’t taken it off since.
What fall pieces did you wait all summer to wear?
