Leather (or faux-leathers) jackets have remained a staple outerwear piece during the fall season, radiating an attitude that’s just as cool as the weather. It’s perfect for people who want to add a lil bit of an extra oomph to their outfit. Today, they come in an array of colours and cuts, guaranteeing something for everyone, no matter what your leather jacket needs are!
As the temperature in Montreal begins to drop, students are scrambling to get the most wear out of their favourite fall items before the snow and cold hits. We checked out the Y-Intersection on McGill’s downtown campus to spot students in the signature piece.
What made you decide to put this leather jacket on this morning?
It wasn’t that cold outside and it’s probably going to be one of my last days to wear it. It’s really nice and I love it!
Where did you get it?
ALL SAINTS. But while I’m here, just letting you know I’m actually recording an album. It drops soon and the first single is out. Literally shameless promo. As of now it’s called ‘Break’.
Why did you put on a leather jacket today?
It felt like that kind of day for a leather jacket (really, what day isn’t?)
Where did you get your leather jacket?
I got this from a boutique on Crescent.
What’s the craziest memory you have with it?
This very disgusting frat party. It was really not the place to be wearing this jacket. It was really warm and I was like “I NEED TO LEAVE” so I didn’t stain the jacket!
Where did you get your jacket?
And what made you choose to put on that jacket today?
It’s just such a beautiful day and I wanted to wear something bright.

It’s a happy colour!
