Two Brothers on a Quest

image

Independence Brothers is comprised of Robbie(left) and Scott(right): 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. Specializing in one product, 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.

All of our jackets are real full grain leather. None of that cheap genuine leather that other businesses push on you in their jackets. We believe in quality goods that will stand the test of time. Our leather will fit you like a glove, will age beautifully the more it’s worn, and will be passed down in your family, like all solid leather goods should be. Every detail of our jackets has been excruciatingly examined to maximize value. We use YKK hardware with real metals like brass and steel with durable finishes. We use high quality rayon linings for breathability and comfort.

(MANUFACTURING)

SCOTT KUNZ

Scott spent years refining his fashion taste until he realized one day that he wanted a leather jacket. All he found online were low-cost jackets with poor customer service or high-end jackets with prices that could buy an entire wardrobe. He decided to bypass the middle-man. He began searching for the perfect supplier of leather and a factory that could produce exactly what he wanted: a quality leather jacket made for the individual. After a few years working back and forth with various factories with countless headaches, Scott realized that no manufacturer could do what he asked for. So he made his very own workshop in the heart of leather production in North America: Leon, Mexico. With highly trained craftsmen and women, new equipment, and an obsession with perfection, Independence Brothers was elevated into what it is today.

(MARKETING)

ROBBIE KUNZ

Robbie is an entrepreneur whose marketing expertise and online-presence skills have helped him start numerous companies and business ventures in many industries. He bought his first leather jacket when he was 22 on a family vacation through the Western United States. After receiving compliments on the jacket from friends, family, and strangers alike, Robbie was hooked on the look. When Scott approached him in 2016 to help market his new jacket business, Robbie joined with enthusiasm. Robbie knows what makes a good leather jacket and wants to help you find a leather jacket that will make friends, family and strangers want to compliment you too.

Our Jackets and Manufacturing

We reject the notion that a leather jacket has to cost you a rent check. High quality leather, no retail markup. My brother and I handle all operations to keep costs down.

We will walk you through our measurement taking process, so your jacket fits you unlike any jacket you’ve worn before.

Luxuriously Soft and Breathable

A special blend of Cupro and Rayon allows our linings to have the softness of silk the durability of synthetic fibers, and the breathability of cotton.

Durable

Zippers are stainless steel, from the industry standard for quality, Japanese-brand YKK. Our thread is industrial bonded nylon for superior strength.

Pass it Down

We only use 100% full grain, premium grade a leather in all of our products. Our leather is supple, beatiful, and tough. Our jackets will last you a lifetime, we gurantee it!

Step 1

Customer order

It all starts here, with you. Your order is customized to you and we encourage you to tell us what modifications you’d like on your order. The type of leather, the color of leather, any hardware color preferences: your jacket will reflect you and we want to be sure we get that right.

Step 2

MEASURing

Once we have your order, we will send you our measurement guide. We will work with you as long as it takes to be sure that your measurements are on point. We have made hundreds of jackets without needing to meet our customers in person. Our testimonials and happily returning customers are a testament to our ability to accurately gauge if your jacket will fit you.

Step 3

Layout & cutting

When we are sure of your measurements, we send that information and your order along to our shop manager who will check again to make sure everything is perfect. Once approved, production begins with the laying out of the design on paper, sizing of the individual components of the jacket, and cutting of the leather exactly to specification.

Step 4

Stitching & finalizing

After the leather is cut to size, it is given to our master stitcher—an artisan with the skill to turn a bundle of leather into a stitched jacket. During this step, all the hardware, including zippers, buttons, belts, and pockets, are sewn and riveted onto the leather.

Step 5

Worldwide Delivery

Once your jacket is complete, we will ship it to you anywhere in the world! We offer flat fee shipping for both domestic and international shipments. Domestic shipping typically takes between two to three days while international shipping usually takes about a week.

Our Leather

WE EXCLUSIVELY USE FULL GRAIN LEATHER

Full Grain Leather is a high quality leather that is usually untouched by any finishing process. As a result, Full Grain Leather retains its animal hide imperfections and strength. It is useful for creating jackets, shoes, furniture, or any leather-based item that's built to last.

Unlike some mass-produced leather jackets that are usually made of Split Grain Leather, Bonded Leather, or even Faux Leather, our Full Grain Leather jackets aren't made from leather byproducts or pulps. Instead, our leather is tanned and dyed in barrels by tannery masters with hundreds of years of experience, so you can rest assured that your jacket will breathe well, resist damage, and last for years to come.

We are proud to announce that we have switched over to exclusively using Vegetable-tanned leather in our jackets. This tanning process has a rich history behind it, and is better for the environment (it doesn't leech harsh chemicals into the local water supply). It takes longer and is more expensive to tan the leather this way, but the leather ends up more natural looking, smelling, and with a great patina that we know you'll love.

Our Workshop Practices

We condemn the practices that many clothing manufacturers employ today. Independence Brothers’ jackets are made with both the consumer and the producer’s well-being in mind in our very own exclusive workshop.

  • All craftsmen/women in our workshop are experts with decades of experience each.
  • Our leather is sourced exclusively from the local food industry.
  • We personally visit our workshop at least once a year to ensure they meet our standards.
  • Craftsmen/women work standard hours with holidays and a fair wage
  • Our workshop is naturally lit, well maintained, and safe to work in.
  • We support local tanneries/businesses with our production sourcing whenever possible.
