The Brand New Allsaints PU Leather Dalby Jacket
Good news for all my vegan and vegetarian readers! Allsaints have literally just released a brand new leather jacket, in PU! It’s made from 100% water based polyurethane and 100% recycled polyester. It doesn’t state on the website specifically that it’s vegan, I’m not sure why? But whenever we see a polyurethane jacket, it’s a non animal product, and usually described that way, but my assumption is that it’s animal free because of the material list. This is super exciting as Allsaints make some of the best leather jackets around, but for those of you that are animal friendly, you can now wear their classic Dalby leather jacket!
If you’re not familiar with the Dalby, it’s a long sleeve, sleek, classic leather jacket with minimal detailing. It has zipper pullers, two pockets, concealed zip cuffs, press stud lapels and epaulettes, a recycled lining, and it’s made from the water based PU. I own the Dalby in a few colours and it’s such a nice jacket – probably their most versatile, which is why they’ve started the PU launch with this particular style.
“No fuss styling. The Dalby Biker Jacket is minimalist. Crafted from water based PU, it’s a great leather alternative. Completed with our signature metal trims, it’s a classic AllSaints biker you can come back to again and again.”
As you all know, I am a huge Allsaints leather jacket fan, so you can read my review of the Allsaints Dalby leather jacket here, but also check out my what to know before you buy an Allsaints leather jacket guide, it has all of the information in there that will be super helpful to ensure you get the best fit! The regular Dalby in leather costs £299 – £319, but the PU Dalby costs £249, so you’re also saving money buying this version.
I will say that I’m very intrigued to see what the Allsaints faux leather feels and fits like. Whenever I’ve tried vegan leather jackets before, they tend to be stiff and uncomfortable, they have a look that doesn’t look completely like leather, and they tend to break apart over time. Since Allsaints are known for having better quality, I wonder what this PU leather is like? I’m going to have to purchase it and take a look very soon! Are you excited by this launch?
