My wife is very supportive of my hobbies (more of a car / gun guy) and lets me run rampant with them. Leather jackets have not crossed the threshold into "hobby" territory (yet) That, and her fashion sense is way better than mine.
Yes- The wife has full veto power. She'll tolerate for a little while, as she did with my German Police motorcycle jacket from a few years ago. That one lasted a whole month but it was far less "busy" than this one.
