Designing Pieces: Zip Stevenson...Belt and Boot Compadre
Hollywood Trading Company and Stevenson Overall Company. These jackets are a few of his many creations. And as I have an insane appetite for old design and vintage I have respect for anybody who would take on this challenge!
I am always honoured when people send me pictures of their creations before they are out in the world for sale. Zip created this beautiful and crazy patched motorcycle jacket covered in vintage patches. I was blown away by the amount of work involved in creating these works. This one was up on ebay and sold for over 2000.00 second hand. Like my own struggles to make perfect jackets...the devil is in the details. I was really impressed with the extra details and labelling that comes with this cool racing patch jacket. The bonus of the small runs of these special items is the very uniqueness of each piece. Every owner has their own one of a kind jacket and with only a couple of dozen made you never have to worry about seeing your pal wearing the same jacket at da club!
