Happens sometimes. :)
"Improving" has been our biggest driver since we started about 3 years ago. Anyone who has followed our journey even for a small period would agree.
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.
