We find some of the most fantastic leather jackets out in the thrift and consignment world, but they are usually there for a reason. Being a leather jacket owner for years, one thing I truly know is warmth, protection, and proper fit is the satisfying formula. In our design studio, we try to address as many issues as we find with the fit first and for most. Length of sleeves, underarm bulk, bulky in the back, shoulders fit but the front doesn’t close…… so many ways good leather can be given up on. One leather jacket at a time, we are creating a better fit and more satisfying world. We do custom if you have a jacket you love but need creative solutions to make it work.
This medium weight, medium brushed leather is a casual and comfy jacket and we went with it. A few months ago we found a box of WWII canvas gaiters. We don’t think they were ever worn as they were tiny and in perfect condition (they didn’t even fit around my legs). So, we have been chopping and stitching as we do and this jacket has some pieces of the past intertwined with the future. I when working with them I imagine they represent a feeling of – enemies defeated and the war won, when supplies stayed home, a sigh of collective relief and celebration!
