A blog about the history of vintage leather jacket fashion and fashion production. I'm always looking for pictures of cool stuff send me some pics of your grandpa in a cool leather jacket and a story! I can also be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am currently making my own leather jackets in Canada. Ask me and I will try and help you with whatever you need to know. Just click on comments at the bottom of each post to leave me a message or comment.

Fashion Shows: Benefits of Design
One of the bonus' of my job is that I get to attend fashion shows. There are practically no shows relating to leather and motorcycling however it is very very hard to turn down invites to these parties. I do occassionally get inspired by some young designers and at the very least I get to reach out and meet people who are the ground floor of future design. During Nuit Blanche this year I had a very nice opener! It was an excellent escape from the pressures of getting back to building jackets and flogging vintage. Nance is wearing a classic 60s Bates cafe racer. These jackets in teenage sizes look incredible on the fairer sex!
