Custom Coats and Leather Jackets

Custom Linen CoatWe make some of the most amazing custom coats and jackets that you can find anywhere.  Every type of material, every style,—custom made to order.Linen Redingote

The pics show some of the favorite pieces that we have made recently.

But we can really make anything you might like.

Our long flared Redingote coats are some of our most popular items and the pics show a few custom versions.

Victorian Wool CoatOne in navy blue wool melton (a heavy felted wool), one in pale green embroidered linen, and one, with a hood, that is cut from a deep olive green worsted flannel and lined in scarlet paisley.

The steampunk map coat that is shown is made from a heavy tapestry brocade that has great body, and has gear buttons.

This coat is shown in a plus size, but every coat that we make can be cut in larger (and smaller) sizes as well.

The ivory coat is a 3/4 sleeve cotton trench coat in spring weight cotton twill.

The black coat is a motorcycle jacket that is cut from genuine shearling lambskin with a sueded exterior and classic salt and pepper fur inside. Hooded Wool Coat

The collar is cut from longhair toscana sheepskin.  It is shown with a braided leather belt that we cut to go with the coat and decorated with metal studs.

The coat is unique and shaped to match the raw edges of the hides.Steampunk Coat

The deep rust color leather jacket is a custom safari jacket cut from beautiful suede with a leather belt.  We can make safari jackets in wools and leathers in a multitude of colors and styles.

Shearing is wonderful as a collar, and the short navy zip up coat with a shearling collar was another of our favorite projects.

Deerskin Coats and Vests

Deerskin is expensive! But when you can afford it, it is an amazing luxury.

We always use the best materials for our jackets, whether we are making a jacket from faux-leather, lambskin, or cow hide.

For genuine leather, we always use full grain, grade-A skins to make jackets that are durable, remarkably textured, and dyed all the way through

But nothing is softer to the hand than deerskin. It is thick and yet always feels moist and buttery. It drapes beautifully, and the texture is fascinating.

Here are two projects that we made from deerskin. One is a full length duster and the other a vest with rib knit wool at the hems and coyote fur used as trimming around the hood.

We are a small couture house in Denver, Colorado, but we make garments that fit perfectly for customers all over the world. For truly custom projects like these, we make and sew muslin mock-ups of the garments and send those out first

Then, when we have seen pictures of you wearing the muslin, we alter the pattern and cut a garment that is exactly shaped to your body and sense of style.

So contact us if you would like to discuss what we can do.

All of our projects include having us work with you to sketch up the perfect design and style. Just ask, and we will email a sketch!  We can design something to exact specifications that you provide, or can sketch up multiple options if you just tell us a bit about you and your personal sense of style.
