Do you work with Calf as well, or just lamb?

 

Also - do you have pics of the lamb? (I think the pics on the first pages are all suede right?)

Below is the top notch quality of the Spanish lambskin we selected for you guys.

 

We actually do any kinds of leather but aim to cut down the available options.

 

We can do any calf, calf suede or horsehide in any colors upon requests.

Has anyone tried non-leather options? If so, what fabric and what are your general impressions (pics would also be much appreciated)?

We only made 2 linen Hemingway Safari jackets so far but a denim, wool, cotton/linen A-1 could be very interesting.

Don't know about the others but I think the navy Hemingway is beautiful. So clean and slick looking, definitely another one to add to the wishlist.

Thanks Harry. Our Tannery supplier is making 2 new colors of lambsuede exclusively for us - Tobacco and Cigar.

 

Stay tuned for a different shade of brown buttery-soft lambsuede.

Cant wait to see the new Tobacco and Cigar leather! Where would I be able to source one of these Lee Kung Man Henleys from as well?

Left to right: Cigar, Polo, Tobacco

 

Our Tobacco suede is very close to our Polo suede but slightly lighter in color and does not have the distinct red hue to it.

Both of them are rich color and our Tobacco is close to Edward Green Tobacco suede color.

 

We named it Cigar suede because we already have a darker Chocolate brown suede. This is an Italian Oak Brown.

 

 

For Lee Kung Ming Henleys, please drop us an email for it! Cheers.

So I also invested in one of the polo suede A-1's after weeks of deliberation, and here's my honest review the guys can use if they'd like to once their website is up and running. So firstly, they have been a really friendly company and I have had a pleasant correspondence with them but communication was, at times slow. Unlike Andy however, my shipping experience was faultless. I got a confirmation email saying it had been dispatched at 11am on Wednesday, and I received the jacket in England by about 11am the following day. To have my parcel come from Hong Kong in the space of 24 hours was really positive and craftsman have obviously had a look at their shipping methods. Everything about the actual garment blew my mind. I was not expecting this level of professionalism from a company who do not even have their own website but I was really pleasantly surprised. The white box and black logo is really simple, clean, and looks great. Again I was not expecting this at all, I had imagined it to simply arrive wrapped up. The card inside with suede samples on the back was also a really nice touch and a small detail I appreciated, and reminded me that we are all supporting a small company, which is great! Finally, the jacket itself is everything I could have dreamed it would be. I was a bit hesitant towards how it would fit on me as I knew it had to be altered a bit before being sent but it fits really well. Slim enough that I can wear just a t-shirt underneath and it doesn't hang off me, but just enough space for a jumper. The quality of suede is superior to those on a pair of Loake's that I have. Very supple and soft to the touch, and the colour is how it appears in the pictures which was another thing I had query's over. If I could change one thing, I would make the neck a tad smaller, as when undone the ribbing projects forwards quite far, but other than this I'm really happy with the A-1 and I wish craftsman all the best on their future projects. Once their website is up and running I might have a look at what else they will be offering! I have provided some pictures so you can see how it looks on me, and to add some variety to the other ways people have styled them. Obviously people like Andy have styled it in the way they want to, and craftsman have also styled in a somewhat similar way. I wanted to show others around the same age range as myself (early 20's) that a jacket like this can be incorporated into younger and more relaxed styles. Sorry for such a long message it's just no one else had written much of a review, and craftsman deserve an in-depth one after all their hard work.

Well done Harry. Looks great and I concur almost all your statements. I can't wait for my Hemingway Safari jacket to come!

Thank you very much for writing us such a detailed review - we're honoured and so glad to hear you're happy with our jacket.

Our website is under construction and will be alive very soon. Please stay tuned and some exciting projects will be announced!

Sorry for the slow reply as we were out of town meeting our business partners. That's why it's been delayed to get the pictures but we are trying to reply to all of you guys' messages and emails the earliest we can do.

Andy's feedback on his shipping experience means a lot to us. We've been looking at our delivery service, used and compared different courier services recently including UPS, DHL and FeDex for different countries. ying to give the best service for all of you.

Thanks for your pictures and these are what we love to see that our customers are adding individaulity to our jackets and how they pair it differently. Your snapshots definitely are super helpful to our younger customers.

Cheers
