A beautiful leather jacket is a wardrobe staple everyone should own. But sometimes—be it for ethical reasons or financial ones—not everyone wants to invest in the real deal. The problem is, the faux options often leave much to be desires. Sure, there are pleather options galore available at most fast-fashion chains (take your pick), they can be hit or miss when it comes to fit and style. Plus, low-quality, waxy pleather can sometimes feel plasticky to the touch.
Enter indy brand Jonah Jay’s too-good-to-be true vegan leather basics.
Made from a high-quality vegan leather that’s least harmful to the environment, Jonah Jay’s sleek and simple lines make looking cool effortless. The Canadian brand is developed and manufactured in Toronto (and you know how we feel about supporting homegrown businesses).
The most exciting part of Jonah Jay’s vegan leather is that unlike the real stuff, it can be ironed and steamed on its reverse side without damage to the fabric, which means you’ll always look polished.
Our fave piece of the collection? Well, it’s a tie: The Mikki blazer, with no closures, lapels or trims, is incredibly sleek, chic and will go with just about anything; the Aaron pant however, is the perfect way to get away with wearing sweatpants to work.
WHO IT’S FOR:
Anyone looking to improve their fall wardrobes.
