Balenciaga Leather Jacket

Remember the Balenciaga leather jacket which i blogged about last year? The one which Emmanuelle Alt was seen wearing several times?

Now, you can get it from Matches Fashion in UK...but only in Brown or Navy. If your size is sold out there, you can try Browns Fashion in downtown London.

could you post pic of you wearing it when you recieve it? I would be interested to see what the fit is like.

monsieur AG said...

yeah...i will do so...

actually i can actually fit into a size 40 but i find it alittle uncomfortable so i got a 42. The good thing about it is that i don't have to make any alterations for it...

how much? does it discount then? can i order one more black?

monsieur AG said...

Mariane, i will try to post the pics as soon as i get the jacket

monsieur AG said...

The price is 1595euros. No discount. You can try to order but not sure if there is still a size for u

Mark said...

Easily one of the best jackets I have ever seen. And props to you for not sticking to mens sizing.

Pics will be great.

monsieur AG said...

thanks! will definitely post some pics!

yoyo said...

haha thats funny i actually tried it on too when i was in paris! size 44 fit a little snug on me at first but loosened up within the few minutes i had it on at the store. im definitely waiting for it to go on sale tho ;)

yoyoyo said...

btw you should upgrade/update your playlist since each song only plays for 30 secs...

monsieur AG said...

hey YoYo

Is there even a 44? The SA told me that the biggest size is actually a 42...anyway i think 42 should fit me nicely...

I guess this jacket will be sold out before it even reach the sale period

monsieur AG said...

yeah i should change the song!

yoyo said...

yup there's definitely a 44 - thats the largest size they make for women.

i think you'll be very happy with the 42! when r u expecting it?

monsieur AG said...

i think so too. 42 should be fine.

The package has been delivered but i am out of the country :( can only check it when i am back

Gold Sphere said...

Does your wife needs it tailored? The sleeves are really long on mine, I just really get them tailored.. as I always like to show the wrists.

monsieur AG said...

yes it definitely has to be tailored...go back to the boutique and i am sure they can do a good job to get it altered

Gold Sphere said...

Thanks for the quick response! I got mine from Matches boutique last year, and not the actual store in London, as it was sold out everywhere!

Do you think they will alter items (if I pay of course) that are from balenciaga but not bought in the boutique? I just don't trust 'any' tailor.

Has your wife had it altered yet? I'd love to see pictures.

monsieur AG said...

Yes of course. You can bring it to the boutique in London. My wife had it altered there.

Let me know which country u are from and i can recommend a tailor for u...

Gold Sphere said...

Merci Monsieur! =)

I live in London, I think leather can be harder to work with though, which is why I have been hesitant to go...

I very much looking forward to pictures of you in the jacket!

monsieur AG said...

Don't worry, a good tailor knows how to work with leather! London is full with good tailor...even a saville row tailor can do it. Since you are in London, you should go to balenciaga and have them tailored for you. Look for the guy there, he is the friendliest SA over in the boutique and he will be able to help you.

Hi! Love your blog. I just got this jacket as a bday present from my husband. It's a beauty. The sleeves are very long however, down to my fingertips - and I was wondering how your alterations went. I live in NYC and it was bought at a boutique in Soho (not the Balenciaga store though). I'm so worried that since the sleeves have those zippers, it's an impossible job!
Can you advise me? Do I just bring it into a Balenciaga boutique?

monsieur AG said...

Hi Samus, sorry for the late reply. I just saw your comments.

To be honest, the sleeves are made to be long for you to alter it specifically to your own size. I don't have to alter this jacket as the length suite me perfectly as it is a woman's jacket. All my leather jacket has been altered so don't worry about altering the sleeves. The most important thing is for you to find a good tailor, they will know what to do. Sleeves with zippers are not a problem, the tailor should know what to do as he/she will shorten the sleeves from the shoulder area and not the wrist.

Lastly, you can definitely bring it to a Balenciaga boutique. They would be able to get it done for you.

Samus said...

Thank you! This is very reassuring. I was worried, as this is my first REALLY good leather jacket and I don't want to screw it up. I called the Balenciaga boutique, but they said they do not offer alterations - not very helpful. Perhaps they are better out there in the UK stores?
But I was recommended to a leather specialist - Superior Leather. Apparently they have worked with many designers such as Alexander McQueen, etc. and know their stuff.
Wish me luck! Thanks again for the response!

monsieur AG said...

You mean the boutique in London actually told you that?!?! It is impossible. I am 100% sure that they offer alteration as i had clothes altered there previously. Alternatively, you may ask them for the tailor which they used....if u are not staying too far from the boutique, do make a trip down and demand them to alter it for u...
