SOLVED: The Mystery Behind Ryan Gosling’s Leather Jacket
On Wednesday, the earth shook and our hearts exploded when we read that Ryan Gosling — peace keeper, dog lover — designed his own leather jackets. We assumed it was in tandem with an established brand, perhaps just a custom tweak on a pre-existing style. (The Gosling of our hearts is too busy holding babies and espousing feminist theories to be focusing on such trivial matters as grommet placement.) And, it turns out, we were right. The maker of Gosling’s outerwear of choice has finally come forward!
According to a spokesperson, Gosling’s “grey, self-designed leather jacket” is a custom version of a black 3.1 Phillip Lim bomber. “Ryan initially owned the jacket in black,” they told us. “He wore it all the time so he asked us to make him a grey version.”
Well! That’s that. It’s a fine looking jacket (see our gallery below) and it retails for $1,100, should you be inclined to follow Gosling’s lead. And if you’re a guy: why on earth wouldn’t you?
