    As a vegetarian, I'm trying to wear more of it. Some of the jacket varieties look great, they're cheaper and cruelty free!

    I've been generally disappointed with fake leather products I own. Be it jackets, boots, belts, bags and what not. It just doesn't last very long or wear well. Leather looks cool when it's worn, it gets character. Fake leather does not, it just falls apart and looks cheap and ugly. The fake product may last a season or two, so depending on the price it might be worth the purchase, but personally I feel it's better to invest in real leather.

    I try to stay clear of pleather. It looks kinda tacky mostly. I personally would rather not have a leather jacket, for example, than a fake one.
    But if you really want a synthetic piece, be it out of ethical or economical reasons, it may be interesting to look into the different kinds of synthetic leathers that are out there. Apparently there are a number of significant differences.
    Here's an article: Artificial leather - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    It does the job short term and is far cheaper obviously, but be careful when choosing your pieces.
