(MINUS THE) LEATHER TWEED MOTO JACKET
Different from the Picture
Something to keep in mind for anyone looking to buy this jacket. I read the two reviews on here saying it was different from the picture and I was skeptical to buy it. I went to Express yesterday to try it on for myself Here is what I found. There is indeed no front or back yoke to the jacket. The picture where it has white leather on the tops of the shoulders (front and back) is called the yoke, and it is does not exist. The jacket has tweed all the way up to where the white snap collar is front and back. The only white part of this jacket is the white leather arms and white snap collar. If you look at the picture of the model wearing it, that is what it actually looks like. That being said, it does fit true to size. I didn't find it to be as form fitting as some of the other jackets, but the tweed material wouldn't allow for that. I didn't find it particularly stiff or uncomfortable, just not quite as much give to it in comparison with the leather or the cotton lining on the sides. It looks pretty nice and would look great with a black dress or something contrasting to the white. To me, this jacket seemed to be something that needed to be tried on first before I would buy. Overall a good look, though I found it to be better unzipped than zipped.

Not as pictured, still lovely
Others have mentioned this, but the tweed material goes all the way up to the shoulder seam, and meets the tweed material from the back. The leather is only on the sleeves, not on the yoke. It is slightly less sharp this way, but still very nice.

I love this jacket. It fits well. It looks more dressy than the black minus the leather jacket, which I also love. I get lots of compliments when I wear this out. I usually pair it with skinny jeans and boots or heels.
