The WALL London Leather Jacket – My Competition Win

Like most bloggers I love the internet.  I love learning and finding out about anything and everything.   In the early days of the internet I would ‘surf’ (there’s a blast from the past) for hours.  I eventually discovered that a lot of websites had competitions which you could enter online.  From that day on I started to enter competitions.  I have been very fortunate and won some amazing prizes.  Earlier on in the year I won a night in a Handpicked Hotel with Amarula.  If you want you can read about it here.  A couple of weeks ago whilst travelling back from London on the train I discovered that I had won a Leather Jacket from WALL London.   I do not write about everything I win but felt that the jacket deserves its own little space on my blog.

WALL LONDON

Established in fashionable Notting Hill, WALL London create their masterpieces in their own London studio.  Their name was founded from a quote by a mexican architect Luis Barragán.  His quote starts ‘Wall’s must support you, you should feel safe and protected inside them’  Their garments are flattering and stylish but remaining comfortable.

THE PACKAGING

The word QUALITY stood out from the moment I opened the box to my leather jacket.  Firstly the box was solid and securely fastened taking me a good five minutes to undo.  Okay so I might have been a little excited.  However, it was nice to see the WALL protecting the jacket was just as solid as the WALL the jacket would be providing for me.  Once I had lifted the lifted I could see a mass of black tissue paper and as I excitedly unwrapped the tissue (felt like Christmas) the leather jacket was laying beneath.  I love it when items you order on-line are wrapped so luxuriously, definitely makes me want to order more.

THE LEATHER JACKET

The jacket is made from Lamb Nappa leather.  I totally underestimated how soft the jacket would be.  I have not bought many leather jackets in the past because of their texture/feel.  However, Lamb Nappa leather is used to make items such as gloves so you can imagine how soft it is.

My most favourite feature is the sleeves which have a knitted ribbed insert on the undersleeve.  This allows for a slim fit, giving extra movement and without feeling constricted.

Hopefully you can see the knitted ribbed sleeves which give extra comfort and freedom when moving.

I love the back of the jacket as much as the front

I also like the minimalist look and in particular the zips on the pockets.  The front zip fastens at an angle, and the jacket looks just as good done up and as it does undone.

The zip detail on the pockets is so simple but so effective

THE PRICE

The jacket retails for £400.00 on WALL London’s website.  To me and probably to a lot of you it does sound like a lot of money. However as I get older I now tend to go for quality.  I don’t know about you but I am most definitely a true believer of you get what you pay for.  You maybe paying a little bit more than the average leather jacket but the quality of leather and the design speaks for itself.  I am in no doubt that this jacket will be worn for many years to come.

I have to keep pinching myself as I still can’t believe I am the lucky owner of such a beautiful jacket
