I got my first leather jacket as a gift which was a BCBG leather jacket. I wore it for years through the transitional seasons in Paris and it eventually ripped. I purchased a new one and it literally has traveled around the world with me. I wear my leather jacket as the weather transitions to Spring but isn’t quite warm enough until Summer hits. Then I will pick it back up as the nights get crisp and Fall begins. I will wear it until I have to surrender to a warmer coat in November.
If you are going to pack one jacket for Paris, a leather jacket is what you need.

For the little ones. Martiene (age 11) wanted to match me so I got her one for her birthday. I sized up so she would grow into it. It made it two years and was reasonably priced. She loved it!
