The experience I has with Independence Brothers has been fantastic! I'm an unusually short guy and I've never actually had clothing that fit correctly because everything off the shelf is too long/big and the patterns are never shaped right when scaling to make me look good. After receiving my jacket, it fits perfectly! They even altered the patters in such a way that my shoulders look great without me looking like I'm wearing my dad's suit. Everything about this jacket's fit is perfect! On my order, I also requested a ton of pockets to be added with a marked up drawing of an existing jacket on this site. Every pocket is exactly how I hoped it would be. It's like someone almost tried the jacket on and adjusted everything to fit my dimensions; the hand warmers are in JUST the right spot for my hands, the pockets on the front of the jacket are in JUST the right spot to be useful, the cell phone pocket I added is JUST the right size and JUST high enough to be spot on... It's amazing how these little details make this jacket the one I'm going to wear everyday now. Also, the customer support I received from Scott was amazing! Towards the end near delivery, I was getting pretty impatient and, unfortunately, a little rude. Scott the entire time was very patient with me, always returned my calls, and very much worked with me to provide me updates on where my jacket was. Cheers Scott on a job well done! Some things to note that have nothing to do with the quality of the jacket, but you might be interested in as a future purchaser: 1) These are fashion style jackets. The leather is not super thick, which is great because it makes them light and easy to wear, but I definitely wouldn't rely on one of these for something like motorcycle protection. 2) It really can take a while for them to make the jacket. It took ~11 weeks for me to receive mine. 100% worth the wait though. So my advice would be to keep a level head and be patient. Don't be rude like me because Scott is doing something amazing here and is definitely worthy of your trust. You're going to be very happy once that jacket hits your front porch! Overall very pleased and will order again in the future if I have a need for a 2nd one.
I was skeptical ordering a leather jacket from someone I knew nothing about and providing my measurements to but THEY NAILED IT! Yes, it took some time to receive the jacket but as they say on their website - it takes time to make your custom jacket. I'm a female and they made a custom leather ladies jacket for me exactly like the pictures, description and sizing I provided. It was even more beautiful than I had anticipated it would be. Got it last night and it fits like a glove! Thank you Independence Brothers. A smooth experience from placing my order, providing my measurements, waiting for my jacket to receiving it yesterday. I can't wait to wear it for years to come. And of course, I'm already placing an order for another. Yep, that's how much I love it! You won't be disappointed.
This is my second jacket from Independence Brothers. This time, I decided to go with a custom design because I loved how well the first jacket fit me. I saw a design for a jacket that I really admired, but nothing like it was available anywhere. It was a pleasure to work with Scott, and Independence Brothers exceeded my expectations for how closely to my custom design the final result turned out to be, especially considering the fact that I requested a jacket made primarily with suede. Because my new jacket fits so well, I feel even more confident wearing it. And although it is a little bit of a wait before your jacket will arrive, in my opinion, it is well worth it for the quality that this company offers. It's only a matter of time before I decide to add another jacket from Independence Brothers to my wardrobe.
I just got my custom designed jacket delivered, and first impression, in a word, is that it is amazing. The fit feels perfect, the features are all exactly what I wanted. The length is right where I expected it to be, and the buckles at the waist give a great amount of flexibility in how I can draw its lines in. I am going to live in it for a few days before writing a full review, but it looks (and smells) great. Thanks to all of you and everyone else involved in crafting it. I am super excited to go out showing it off.
"jacket fits like a glove" they weren't lying! Once I got used to the slim fit I think it's the best leather I've worn.
