    Those are good-looking jackets.

    As a heads-up for you, the Italian word "Pelle" has the same meaning as our English word "Leather" when used in a labeling context. Literally, it translates to "skin" or "hide."

    Whether the leather is calf, kid, or lamb, it is all "Pelle." Evidently, your jacket labels are bi-lingual. [​IMG]

    Hehe..that's like the Mickey Blue Eyes movie where the italian restaurant was called The La Trattoria. So it's essentially "The THE Trattoria"

    Well my jackets are then 100% leather leather.

    I would try and get ahold of whomever did the bespoke work on T4's Caribou coat -- it is the most beautiful and badass jacket I have ever seen.

    seconded.

    The above list of ateliers was put together by T4phage. He did not explain if he had firsthand experience with them. Seraphin allegedly do not allow visitors or direct orders. They do have a retail shop...in Moscow.

    A shop called Purcell on the Champs Elysees (inside a gallery on the north side) has a large selection of Seraphin.


    I just keep posting the same list each time someone asks about bespoke leather jacket makers. Don't shoot the messenger, FullCan.

    We called Seraphin's shop and were told no visits. Theo Fil also carries a bunch of his work. Or they did in 2001.
