Made from hand picked vintage hides discovered in the backrooms of one of San Francisco's oldest leather importers. These amazing vintage leather hides have a fabulous crinkle texture that looks so organic and natural. I lay out the hide to fit the pattern for my Erin jacket so that the the leather's natural grain flows with the cuts of the panels that make the jacket.... landing the natural edges at the lapels, waistline and cuffs, so that the character of the hide lives through the piece. I also orient the leather to compliment the flow and flexibility of your body, placing the natural grain in harmony with your movement. This leather jacket is not stiff or constraining in any way.... it can feel like your second skin. The comfort is delicious with the inside being vintage suede against your body.
Wide lapels carry the natural contour edging of the actual vintage hide, for never to be repeated styling. Fluted sleeves open to raw cuffs.
It's a most unique and stylish jacket, evoking both modernism as well as natural organic forms. Stunningly dramatic, special, never seen before, and one of a kind.
When people ask you about, you'll know you have the only one.
The photos show two different make ups of this jacket. One was done with studio lighting, the other outdoors, so the leathers look different when they are from the same lot. The only difference between the two jackets shown is the belt style, and I can make yours with either kind, or even something new ! Available in all sizes. The jackets shown in the photos are sold.
Please visit my shop for other limited edition alternate versions of this jacket constructed with patchworked multi colored leathers... completely different look.
