James&Co Faux Leather Jacket Review


Disclosure: Affiliate Links are used in this post.

I am very excited to share with you today a review on a product, and a company. James&Co now has won my heart with their cruelty free fashion philosophy! James and Co brings us high fashion style without harming animals or our planet! I especially have enjoyed looking over their Facebook Page and learning more about them.


One snippet from their site really caught my attention. 

Behind the Name 
James&Co is inspired by the all too brief life of James Lucas. James was a unique individual who cared unassumingly about others and whose natural inclination was to show humanity, and, like most 24 year olds, James liked to dress with style. In his talented writing, James exhorted us to 'Live Life & Love it!!'.  James&Co aspires to uphold James' beautiful legacy, presenting a stylish range which is dedicated to giving back to humanitarian causes in his honour. 
It truly draws me in when a brand is doing something good, and has a unique perspective. 

About the Jacket: 



This is a James&Co brand Moto Style ladies jacket manufactured in super supple black vegan faux leather with a waxed-wash finish. The waxed finish gives a slightly lived in look. The jacket has an asymmetrical zip with collar and lapel studs. The panels on the front sides give the jacket a classy fitted look. The back of the jacket is panelled and the bottom band at the back provides a smooth finish. The jacket has zippered vertical pockets on the front and zippered sleeves. The lining is the signature James&Co color of silver/grey. The jacket is machine washable on a gentle cold water cycle. It can be worn open or unzipped, casually with jeans or more smartly with a LBD or dress of choice. It is packaged in non-woven branded bag. The fabric is not only super supple but is a stylish cruelty free alternative to leather.
The detailing on the jacket is beautiful. I love the way that the stitching appears almost copper in color, brining an added depth to the overall look of this sharp, on trend jacket. I love the cut of the jacket, and the way it is slimming, even on a curvier figure. Can you believe that it is machine washable!? I think most women today can appreciate this. Not only do I not have time to go to the dry cleaners but I am not a huge fan of the chemicals used in dry cleaning. James&Co's Faux Leather Vegan materials keep us from having to expose ourselves and our earth to such chemicals! 

This style of jacket is hot this season, and really, a jacket with this classic cut will never go out of style! You will see  jackets like this in all of the latests fashion subscription services, as well as photos of this style of jacket jamming the walls of Pintrest, so now you can get one too but one that is cruelty free, vegan "leather", and machine washable! What more could one ask for? 


I am wearing an extra large, I have a 38DD chest, and wide shoulders, so you may want to consider this when sizing for yourself, but the jackets do run a little small.

When it arrives it comes in its own lovely dust cover which is an added bonus. Note in the photos below it does look rather brown but that would be due to my poor camera quality I imagine. It is indeed black with subtle copper stitching accents.
