Real vs. Steal – Alexander McQueen Belted Biker Leather Jacket

by Irina on October 30, 2010

Before I fell in love with Alexander McQueen‘s creativity and power of imagination I loved his signature laser-cut tailoring which I guess is one of the many reasons why his designs are a success both artistically and commercially. But as much as I love me some Alexander McQueen, I’m sure you and I know better things to do with $5.000 than to spend them on 1 piece of clothing. You know, all those silly things like paying rent, buying food, saving for your retirement, etc. Boo-ring and so not fashionable, but unfortunately a little more important than a cool leather jacket.

If you want a great looking McQueen alternative, look no further because bebe‘s got your back. Padded shoulders? Check. Multiple zippers? Check. Waisted tailoring? Check. bebe’s jacket might miss the belt, but it has a cute ruffled peplum instead which I find quite as charming. And don’t $259 sound like a much more reasonable price for a leather jacket? Be sure to grab yours soon because I have a feeling this jacket will be going fast.
