Review: BLANKNYC Moto Jackets

December 05, 2016

I received a few questions about the BLANKNYC Morning Suede Moto Jacket that has appeared a few times on this blog in the last month, and thought I'd share my thoughts on this jacket and a few similar options.
BLANKNYC Easy Rider Faux Leather Moto Jacket // Size XS // Black
Overall Length: 23" || Shoulder: 15.5" || Sleeve length: 24" || Underarm to Underarm: 17.25"
Style BLANKNYC Easy Rider Faux Leather Moto Jacket, available in five colors.
Material 60% polyurethane, 40% viscose. For the price point, this faux leather actually doesn't feel cheap.
Fit Runs XS-XL. The fit is true to size, and will likely fit those who fall in the middle 80% of the size spectrum.
Price $98, which is more than reasonable, assuming no adjustments are needed.
Decision I returned this. There were a number of standard fit issues that shouldn't surprise a short person, like too-long sleeves and too-big shoulders. I also thought the design was too busy; I could do without the zip detailing at the cuff and the articulated sleeves.

BLANKNYC Morning Suede Moto Jacket // Size XS // Burgundy
Overall Length: 21.75" || Shoulder: 15" || Sleeve length: 23.25" || Underarm to Underarm: 16.75"
Style BLANKNYC Morning Suede Moto Jacket, currently available in five colors at Nordstrom. Additional colors available at Revolve Clothing and Zappos.
Material 100% leather shell; 65 polyester/35% cotton lining. I really like this suede; it is substantial but not bulky. The metal used is adequate, but I did originally receive a jacket with badly tarnished hardware, so inspect your jacket before tearing off the tags.
Fit Runs XS-L. The jacket fits about a size small (compared to mass retailers). But don't forget that it is regular-sizing with a cropped design, so sleeves will be slightly long on short people, and the length a bit short on those with long torsos.
Price $188, which is really inexpensive for a suede jacket that is on trend (and happens to fit well). 
Decision I own this in two colors, and plan to buy more if new colors are added. I really like the relatively plain design (for a moto jacket), and the slimmer fit. You'll probably see a lot more of this jacket on here.

BLANKNYC Faux Leather Crop Moto Jacket // Size XS // Squad Goals
Overall Length: 22" || Shoulder: 15" || Sleeve length: 23.5" || Underarm to Underarm: 17"
Style BLANKNYC Faux Leather Crop Moto Jacket, currently available in two colors.
Material 60% polyurethane, 40% viscose (same material as the one used for the Easy Rider Faux Leather Moto Jacket). Again, the faux leather material is more than adequate at this price point, but it isn't as supple as real leather.  
Fit Runs XS-L. The jacket fits true to size. I was hoping it would be similar in fit to the BLANKNYC Morning Suede Moto Jacket, but it fits more like the Easy Rider Faux Leather Moto Jacket.
Price $128.
Decision I returned this. I didn't like the fit on me, and regardless of how affordable it is, I don't have enough closet space to accommodate a lukewarm purchase.

Another BLANKNYC design that I love (and own) is the Faux Leather Jacket (see on me here). If you have a more generous budget, consider the Genuine Leather & Suede Moto Jacket and Genuine Leather Moto Jacket, both of which look promising.
