For those of us at Independence Brothers, going custom is always a good idea. You may have seen us say this before, or this might be the first time you are visiting our blog, but custom jackets are above and beyond a ready to wear jacket.
What makes custom jackets so great? This may be the obvious first answer, but the fact that they are custom is the key aspect. When you create a custom jacket, it becomes a one of a kind piece of fashion. No one else has it because you chose the design elements yourself. You won’t see someone in your neighborhood wearing the same piece as you.
Not only is the jacket unique, it is expressive. We believe that fashion is a way for your personality to shine through, and even more so when you create it yourself.
If those reasons aren’t enough, the fit of the jacket brings it home. Even if you generally fit into ready to wear sizes, a custom jacket that is tailored to your body is many times better than any standard size. You won’t run the risk of the jacket not quite fitting your sleeves right or being too tight to zipper shut. The jacket will fit like a glove.
Some people may get nervous at the thought of custom pieces. Custom jackets do have some possible downsides to consider before you purchase. When you place your order, you have to carefully make sure that your measurements are accurate because returns are generally much more restricted.
Custom jackets can also come at a higher price tag. It makes sense when you consider handmade versus factory made, mass produced versus one of a kind. You are paying for a one of a kind piece and the extra labor and skill that goes into creating that. That price tag, however, sometimes comes in at too high of a number for some budgets. The higher price tag may be the first instinct for many shoppers and the thought that drives you away from considering a custom piece.
Not all companies have a custom price tag that will price you out though. Independence Brothers prides itself on being a company that has affordable bespoke prices, giving many the opportunity to get a custom jacket.
Independence Brothers was built by two brothers who wanted to give men and women everywhere the opportunity to have a jacket that feels just right, both on the body and on the wallet. They have refined the art of manufacturing down to a science based around quality leather, skilled craftsmanship, and the perfect custom fit. The brothers pride themselves on providing fantastic customer service for sizing concerns and unique features that enable anyone to own a fitted leather jacket. Going custom is much more attainable if you get an Independence Brothers jacket. With every jacket they have, you are able to send in measurements and pick details, such as the color leather or lining. It allows for more versatility with what you are purchasing, and it is much more affordable than other places.
