If you don’t want to spend thousands on this versatile wardrobe item, go for pleather/leatherette. It won’t last as long as the real thing, but you should be able to wear it for a few seasons.
Think of this as an investment piece. Real leather lasts much longer than fake, but choose a classic, simple style. A jacket with a dozen zips might look cool now, but you could grow tired of it.
