Balenciaga Motorcycle Jacket Look for Less





As much as I love and adore Balenciaga's leather motorcycle jacket, the sky high price of $2595.00 kills me.  It is on my UHG (Ultra Holy Grail) list.  It is seen on many celebrities such as Salma Hayek, Jennifer Aniston, Katie Holmes, and that's naming just a few.  Of course, I've always wanted to invest in such a jacket, but ultimately could not afford this price tag as it is 2.5K costs even more than most of the bags!  

This jacket is still very popular among the fashion forums, and has been popular for the last few years.  It's a wonderful style since you can dress it up or down with almost any outfit!  It can add a nice chic touch to a plain top and a pair of jeans.  

So as I was searching for a more affordable alternative, I stumbled on this lovely jacket on SSense. 
Note the shocking similarities? 




The jacket on the brunette model is made by True Religion and it's also called the Moto Jacket.  The price is much less at $720.   I'm thinking of getting this one, so I will report back with modeling pics if I do end up purchasing.
