I’ve mentioned Muubaa on a couple of other blog posts (click here and here), and I have yet to find another brand of leather jackets that I like better. I love their jackets so much that I’ve started a small Muubaa collection in my closet (so far I own 2 leather jackets and one pair of leather pants). As I’ve said many times before, and will continue to say, leather jackets are a staple piece worth investing in. I can spot an inexpensive or pleather jacket a mile away (and that’s not good) – it’s better to set aside money and spend some time looking.
This brings me to my latest Muubaa leather jacket, the Merini in mint. While is says mint, it looks more gray then mint to me. Which I am perfectly fine with, I happen to love the color and faded finish.
One thing to note, when I was looking at reviews online, several people mentioned Muubaa leather jackets run small. I disagree, I purchased both my Muubaa leather jackets in a US size 2 (which is my usual size). My guess is if you have broad shoulders, you may want to size up. I may not be able to wear a bulky sweater underneath but that would defeat the purpose of a fitted look. Also both of my Muubaa jackets are quite thin, making them prefect for the spring through fall weather in the bay area.
What I love most about the Merini is the soft buttery leather, buckled collar strap, jetted zipped pockets, asymmetric zipped front opening, elbow darts and cuff zip details. And I absolutely love the worn-in look. It’s very biker chic and looks great with just about anything – you can choose to dress it up or down.
