AllSaints Leather Jacket Review

Joanna does quite a few things in life, but writing has been her favorite by far. She is a city girl who has moved to a beach town, and second to writing, will never tire of music, travel, and the friendships she makes as a result of both.


What is AllSaints?

AllSaints is a British fashion retailer calls its headquarters home in London, England. It was founded in 1994 by Stuart Trevor and Katie Bolongaro. The company was named after Stuart Trevor, whose initials formed ST. His pseudonym was “The Saint,” helping birth the company name. The duo of Trevor and Bolongaro has since gone and created an entire label- the Bolongaro Trevor label.

Originally, the company began as a wholesale menswear brand. It sold only to higher-end retailers, such as Harrods and Nichols. It opened up its first brick and mortar shop in London on November 1, 1997, which is All Saint’s Day. The company sold menswear until 1998, when the first womenswear collection, designed by Bolongaro, was created to expand the company.

AllSaints continued to expand within the United Kingdom. In 2004, it was bought out by fashion financier. A children’s wear line was launched, and in 2006, an e-commerce component website was launched as well.

In 2009, AllSaints made its way to the United States, expanding across the country. It opened stores in many of the major cities, including New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Boston, Seattle, Washington D.C., and San Francisco. In 2016, AllSaints expanded around the world, launching stores in countries such as Italy, Chile, Peru, Dubai, Taiwan, Turkey, and Qatar. AllSaints was acquired by Lion Capital in 2011, and today, it sells menswear, womenswear, footwear, and accessories. It has 232 stores around the world in 27 countries.

How do I order an AllSaints leather jacket?

As mentioned above, AllSaints has 232 stores around the world in 27 countries. If you happen to live near or are visiting one of those stores, you can go inside, try on, and purchase a jacket there. Their website, https://www.allsaints.com/, contains a store locator section to see how close you are to an actual store.

For those who are not nearby or just prefer to online shop, you can order a leather jacket on their website. Their website allows you to browse, shop, and purchase online. While you can have an AllSaints account on their website to order, you can also check out as a guest. In the United Kingdom, United States, and Germany, you can also use Amazon Pay when purchasing their products. If you place an order as a guest or as an AllSaints account holder, you can track it by using the tracking number they give you in the confirmation email.

AllSaints currently ships to over 220 destinations globally with their shipping partners DHL and DPD. Orders, once placed, will arrive within 5-7 working or business days, although the site does state that outlying areas may take longer.

If you are outside of the European Union, AllSaints ships on a delivery duty unpaid basis. This means that the seller, AllSaints, is responsible for making a safe delivery of the products that you order to the destination, paying all of the transportation as well as assuming all of the risks during the transportation.

If you want to change or cancel your order, you can do so by contacting their Customer Experience if the dispatch email has not been sent to you. If the order has been dispatched, you as the customer must refuse the order at the point of delivery or send it back using a return slip.

Having an AllSaints leather jacket

Getting an AllSaints jacket is an investment that usually ranges in the 300-400-pound range for the men’s jackets. For women, jackets are about 100 pounds less on average, although some still get close to 400 pounds in price. Customers mention that there are sales and promotions occasionally throughout the year, so if you want to have an AllSaints jacket but are on a smaller budget than that, waiting to see if the style you love goes on sale could be an option. They have men’s and women’s leather jackets in a variety of styles, and here we will delve into a few of them.

Caring for your AllSaints Jacket

Once you make the investment in an AllSaints jacket, taking care of it helps ensure the longevity of the jacket and making it worth your while. Most of the AllSaints jacket pages have instructions to do special leather cleaning and treatment for the jacket. We can assume that products such as leather lotions would be useful to keep your jacket pristine, but it is always wise to speak to someone from AllSaints about the anymore specificities for its care.

Pros and Cons of an AllSaints Jacket

The big con that appears is the price tag. While AllSaints are not the most expensive of leather jackets out there - readers here know that we have seen some leather jacket products above $600 - it is still a pretty price tag to pay. As we mentioned before, AllSaints does do sales and occasional promotions, so being patient and having good timing could come in handy in beating down the price tag.

However, based on reviews that are written right after purchase to even a year or so after, it seems the product is worth the price tag. These jackets seem to last a decent amount of time, making the investment worth it.

AllSaints does not have customizable jackets, such as companies like Independence Brothers. If you are looking for a jacket that you helped create more, AllSaints would not be the place for you. However, in general, it seems like a good choice for leather jacket wearers.

Choosing an AllSaints Jacket

If you have been to our blog before, you know we say that choosing a jacket boils down to a few key things from you, the customer: style, needs, and price tag. While it may sound like three points that have been heard before, it is important to consider and reiterate before purchasing your leather jacket:

First, your needs. Will you be wearing this jacket in the warmer or cooler weather? If you are wearing it in the cooler weather months, features such as an extra zip lining or a lining made of heavier material will be helpful in keeping you cozy and warm. If you choose to wear the jacket in warmer weather months, you can pick a lighter style, or even a jacket that has a removable lining, one that you can wear through multiple seasons.

Are you a person that travels with a purse or a bag? Or do you travel light? A question like this can help you decide how many pockets you may need, depending on whether you need to store a wallet or just keys. Do you need many pockets or is the standard two enough?

The next thing to consider is your sense of style. What jacket speaks to you, that you can see yourself wearing? The jackets vary in color and style, and they have different cuts to fit your body in different ways. Think about what jackets appeal to you, since jackets are worn so often.

The final, big element to consider is your budget. Are you able to spend money on the higher priced jackets, or do you need to stay in the lower range? While AllSaints leather jackets are more affordable than other leather jacket companies and brands, it is still a financial invest for you to be making. Will waiting for a sale be the tipping point that allows you to buy it? Is the price tag narrowing you down only to styles that you do not like, or is the world your oyster? Figuring out your budget can help you possibly narrow down your selection choices as well.
