                                                            KEEP IT IN THE CLOSET

A recent browsing through our closet made me want to try these two great vintage leather jacket`s purchased by my husband in the late 80`s, intact with it´s exaggerated proportions. I simply wanted to feel what the 80`s proportions really was like. I have always admired how leather ages beautifully and I even think the jacket`s have proven their longevity after sporting them in the living room of our country house. Never throw away a classic - keep it in the closet!
