I think we can all agree that a black leather jacket is an absolute wardrobe staple and should be owned by every man and woman. I also think we can all agree on the fact that Acne Studios happens to make some of the best leather jackets everrrrrrr! (Velocite aviator jacket, anyone?) – Unfortunately, Acne leather jackets (also leather jackets in general) come at a price; in this particular case at $1.550 which is obviously a lot of money, even for a really cool leather jacket. But fret not, my dear fashionistas on a budget! Just keep on scrolling to discover how to get the uber-cool Acne moto look for a whole lot less.

Celebrities & Style Bloggers Love Acne Studios
Celebs such as Kendall Jenner and fashion bloggers like Carolyn (Hey Pretty Thing) and Jane Song (FitFabFun Mom) have been spotted wearing an Acne Studios Mock Leather Moto Jacket.
Warehouse Leather Biker Jacket
Update (03/18/2019): When I saw this biker jacket at Warehouse it instantly reminded me of Acne’s Mock moto jacket, so I decided to add it to the dupes list. Not really a steal at £195, of course, but it looks like a well-made biker jacket made of genuine leather, so it might be worth the splurge if you’re going to wear it for decades to come.
