BANANA REPUBLIC BLACK LEATHER BOMBER JACKET WITH A RETRO LATE 70s early 80s STYLE :: UNISEX TYPE LOOK WITH BANDED BOTTOM :: SIZE IS XS
HISTORY/CONDITION: Purchased this in the early 2000s and wore it one time. Other than some slight pilling to the interior of the stretchy band, and some minor scuffing to the leather (see pics please) this is basically the way it looked when I purchased it.Â It is not even broken in!Â Once this breaks in, it will be really comfy and amazing.
This looks like a men's jacket... and it may even BE a men's jacket -- it can really be worn by anyone, as the style is totally gender neutral, utterly androgynous...
There are 2 side pockets on the outside, and 2 on the interior - -1 in the usual place, and than another which is cut on an angle.Â If you are left handed and need a concealed carry type jacket (which was my reason for wanting this), you may enjoy this slanted pocket on the interior.Â Great stitching details as well, both front and back.
Great Banana Republic quality leather - wear this a few times and break it in for manimum buttery softness.

DETAILS: See above.Â Again, this was purchased new by me circa early 2000s and worn once.Â Other than some minor scuffing to leather and some minor pilling to the interior of the elastic waist band, this is basically as new.Â The fabric of the waist area WILL PILL as you wear it, so no biggie there.

Â NOTES: Luxe, here! Thanks for visiting my BONANZA Shop! Here you will find my PERSONAL items -- these are not things I thrifted, but things from my personal home and wardrobe. I know the complete history of most of them. You are invited to ask questions BEFORE you purchase. I am glad to assist you. I ALWAYS have more pictures ready for you to see - just ask. It is important for you to know that my home IS a SMOKING and DOG-dwelling home. While the items here have been stored for AGES in an area where no smoking takes place, AND where Fudgy (the dog) does not go, you may be one of those folks who can detect micro-particles and allergens. I would ask that you DO NOT purchase from my shop if you are sensitive to aromas, allergens, smoke and dust. As you can see from some of the pics, I LIVE in the desert - the windy high desert ON A DIRT ROAD. It is dusty here. ALL VINTAGE SALES ARE FINAL, so please buy with care. That said, I hope you enjoy my shop and bookmark it for future enjoyment -- ESPECIALLY if you are petite and like clothing from the 70s, 80s, 90s.
