Last year, we quietly launched some men’s suede jackets; a bomber, a trucker and a shacket. We thought they were nice, but we never would have imagined just how popular they would have been.
They were an unexpected hit, not just for our wholesale partners, but also for our direct website. You loved them – particularly the tan suede bomber jacket.
The only problem? We couldn’t meet the demand.
We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again, we’re not really in the business of super-fast-fashion. We like to think we sit in a realistic middle ground. A place where we don’t put pressure on our factories or waste fuel on unnecessary air freight. So with that in mind, some of you had to wait.
We restocked the suede bomber jackets and it wasn’t enough.
We restocked them again and they still sold out.
So when it came time for our Autumn/Winter drop, we knew we had to do something special…
So here is the new suede collection from Barneys Originals for 2022. Luxuriously soft suede in an array of colours. We’ve expanded the range for both men and women and we’re so excited to share them with you. These gorgeous pieces are made from goat suede; a material that is well-known for it’s suppleness and higher abrasion resistance. It’s soft, lightweight and it feels amazing to wear.
For the menswear range, we have bought back the tan suede biker with 3 additional colour ways; Khaki, Stone and Navy. These versatile tones pair well with almost anything in your wardrobe – and yes, we’re bias, but look at them! They’re real wardrobe staples, but they won’t be stuck on a hanger that’s for sure.
We’ve also bought back our classic stone trucker jacket – which has regretfully been out of stock since February in most sizes. Joining the ranks, we also have an alternative navy Harrington. This style has a little more length, for lads who love to put their height in their Tinder bio (cause apparently that matters).
On the womenswear front, we’ve reimagined our best-selling Victoria design. Each suede jacket features the ribbed shoulders and waistline that you already know and love. It’s an edgy twist of classic biker hallmarks with the mature, sophisticated finish of suede. We’ve stuck to earthy, all season colours with this one; Chocolate, Stone, Navy and Tan. It feels so good to finally add a bit more colour to the womenswear range – we know you’ve been asking for it.
Sorry to sound like total cheeseballs, but we’re so proud of this collection. The team have picked the softest suedes and we’re confident that the fit will offer you ultimate comfort. We can’t promise they’ll stick around for long, but we are better prepared this time around!
We really can’t wait to see how you style these, so when your new suede jacket arrives, don’t forget to tag us on the gram.
