Bespoke/Custom Leather Jackets - we would be remiss if we spoke about petite leather jackets and did not mention the option for custom jackets. We’ve spoken about bespoke jackets here before, but we’ll go into some companies that offer custom options as well.
The beauty of bespoke jackets is that they are completely and 100% you. Your measurements, your style, and your flair. You get to choose every aspect of the jacket from beginning to end, and that can give the jacket a more personal touch and feel for you as the wearer. While custom leather jackets are generally more expensive than those that are not, it is worth it for having a jacket made just for you.
Ordering a bespoke jacket is simple: all you need to do is send in your measurements, choose how you want your jacket to look (Buttons? Zippers? Collar? Leather type and color?). Once these decisions have been made, the company will create your jacket for you. Here are a few companies that do bespoke leather jackets:
Independence Brothers - You can get a custom leather jacket right here at Independence Brothers. We are a company that was founded by Scott and Robbie, two brothers who value leather jackets and the way that they make you feel. Based in Philadelphia, Independence Brothers specializes in leather jackets that are made of quality materials, crafted with skill, and fit perfectly. The Independence Brothers jackets are made of lambskin, goatskin, and cowskin leathers so that they are durable, they age well, and they can last for generations. All of our jackets come with free custom measurements and are perfect for petite individuals to make sure they are getting a leather jacket that fits you just right. The Independence Brothers price tag comes in at an affordable one, with jackets as low as $380 and up.
The Jacket Maker - The Jacket Maker is a company that we have focused on before. They are a newer company that is based out of California in the United States and Ras al Khaimah, or RAK, in the United Arab Emirates. Only six years old, they began as an online retail store for leather jackets in 2013. The Jacket Maker shifted to bespoke in 2016, and it is still a major part of the company three years later. They have ready to wear jackets that you can add a customizable touch to or they have the option to go entirely custom-made, from measurements to style. Their price tag is affordable for leather jackets as well, coming in at $200 for their ready to wear jackets, and going higher for their custom jackets.
Leather Skin Shop - Leather Skin Shop is only a hair older than The Jacket Maker in years; it was established in 2012 as a leather bracelet company. They are warehoused in Oregon and sell outerwear, shoes, hats, bags, and caps. The price tag for their ready to wear jackets come in around $200, although custom made jackets are likely higher.
