Wilsons Leather: Fabric Jacket Review

Wilsons Leather: Fabric Jacket with Rib Knit Trim – A Rebel Without a Cause jacket in blue – “Yes Please!”  This is as timeless as James Dean’s famous red jacket!  We all know that Wilsons Leather is known for their leather goods.  Did you know that they also carry other handsome jackets in fabrics other than leather?  The Fabric Jacket with Rib Knit Trim in Navy is a perfect example.  I can’t help but feel cool like James Dean.  

I love how this jacket feels!  It’s so comfortable and fits if it was tailor made just for me (without the tailoring costs).  The rib knit trim cuffs on the sleeves, hem, and collar lining is a welcomed feature to help keep the cold air out.  The collar has a pair of buttons to help keep your neck warm.  The plaid inner lining adds to the overall look and increases the “coolness factor”.

The shell, knit trim, and sleeve lining is made from 100% polyester.  The shell withstood light rain and droplets beaded right off the jacket.  The body lining is made from 65% polyester and 35% cotton.  The jacket comes with a total of 3 pockets; two open hand pockets disguised as two button-closed flap pockets and one inner open pocket near the left chest.  Machine wash and tumble dry will lessen your trips to the dry cleaners.  Your jacket will arrive in a plastic bag on a sturdy hanger.  Available in navy and khaki, sizes S-XXL.

Bottom Line:  Looking for a well made jacket with classic styling that's not leather?  The Fabric Jacket with Rib Knit Trim from Wilsons Leather is worth serious consideration!  Check out the Wilsons Leather Spring Line to see their vast offerings of leather and non-leather goods.  You'll surely find the jacket that fits your personality and lifestyle.
