ShoppingTips - The Quilted Jacket

I have been in the pursuit of the perfect quilted jacket for months...(I sometimes believe I, albeit unknowingly, predict trends). Then WhoWhatWear's e-newsletter arrived in my mailbox with a link to their post on "the timelessly cool quilted jacket," and, I knew it was time to up the efforts.

Call it what you will, I do not reason with my sartorial desires, instead, I patiently wait and seek out the items that fill the void. But, when money is a factor, the wait can be a long one. However, I confidently endorse these Asos jackets are as perfect options to fill your need to obtain a quilted jacket or, maybe, just a cool sporty bomber is what you are looking for! (Especially because all three options are under $100!).

UPDATE: H&M now has the perfect quilted bomber jacket (though they call it a pilot jacket) available!

UPDATE 2: As stated above I firmly believe in the patient pursuit of the perfect item. My belief further reinforced when I serendipitously came across the jacket aka April, May's Bono Quilted Leather Jacket in a bright red marked down 70% off at Shopbop!! What more can I ask for?! Click, click, purchased and now we wait for the UPS man to deliver!
