We started making leather jackets very recently. Made about 6-8 only so far. 

 

Our leather goods manufacturing is in its infancy. For the improvement we have seen, we are confident of them attaining the same level of recognition of other garments have achieved. 

 

Some of the bags we have made.

 

Keep working on it then. Theres a niche in the leather jacket market that needs filling.

 

The issue is that good taste and perception of leather jackets are hard to come by. It comes down to the small details, like the angle of the zipper which effects how much extra leather is double breasted, or the width and proportion of the lapels. Zipper placement, how exposed they are, how long they are, etc. Body to sleeve length proportions. Each of these seemingly minor elements can throw off the aesthetic value of a seemingly traditional jacket if done wrong.

 

I think attempting to pull off a good moto/cafe racer might be a better place to start than a double rider.

that's where your mistake is, unless your customer is a designer... most people don't really know what they exactly want.

 

you should make a jacket in a most ideal size to show its ideal proportion as a sample piece to better illustrate your products.

Thank you, excellent points.

 

We saw this initially with shirts and later with all other products. The subtle improvements do keep happening with each iteration. 

 

It is an iterative and a participative process. The customer and Luxire work together to build a service that then fills the void.

 

Will suggest reading a bit in our official thread here to see how members here have created an ecosystem that has enabled them to get what really wanted but not able to buy.

That balance does come in over time. We do offer the option of making a jacket in slightly stiff canvas that can be sent over for trial. The customer can try it on and make suggestions about the changes in pattern and styling.

 

Does take away a lot of the risk.

 

But then, that is where Luxire way of working can be leveraged: We do not have a standard or fixed process about anything. The customer can decide, over discussions with us, how he wants to proceed with his order.   It is a whole new way of buying clothes.

i appreciate what you guys do, but it still doesn't change the fact that the leather jacket is absolutely atrocious, even if you made it exactly the way the customer wants. would have been better to refuse to produce that imo.

The onus is on you to make it better. We can put you in the driver's seat, if you want to be there. Bring out the designer in you.

How about this: Any style of jacket, in black calf leather: $500

 

Includes one iteration of free canvas trial jacket.

 

If the final jacket is not liked, can be returned for a full refund. 

 

Makes sense? Write to us here.

Styling is done as the customer desires.

Where we have our contribution is in the material used and workmanship. The leather, the metal hardware, the zippers are always of very high quality. Workmanship is something for which we are best known for.

This was made in soft calf leather.

We make everything in-house. No process is outsourced.

A little bit about our manufacturing can be read in this post by a customer who visited out facility.

i respect what you do...

small recommendation for outerwear which people always want a nice quality version of
1. MA1 bomber - goretex or some water resistant fabric
2. Leather Moto - see aero, TOJ moto
3. Leather Rider - see vanson slim fit daredevil http://www.styleforum.net/t/387175/vanson-styleforum-thurston-bros-slim-fit-japanese-double-rider-mto/1785 or one of TOJ's riders http://toj-gallery.com

^ If you prototype the jacket and tweak it, could actually work. What about sample swatches?

how can you calculate like that? when you say any style someone here would draw stuff and want you to make it into a jacket with a perfect fit.

Thank you. 

 

1. We have water proof from Ventile, some options from Epic and a denim fabric that we used for making the jacket here.

2. Can be made as desired. Having seen some of the ones we made, can say that they are very good. The refinement can happen over further feedback. The first moto we had made.

3. We made a few riders in recent times and are getting better in it. Again, feedback remains key.

Glad to send swatches.  Do send us a message.

What calculate are we talking about? 

 

If cost, then it is simple. We just cover our basic costs of the base jacket. If it overshoots, we gladly take the hit. 

 

If styling: We have an internal prototype process that that we do over and over again before making the final piece. Trials are initially in canvas, then in leather

 

If measurements: The prototype process helps solve this issue as well.
