This is hands-down one of the most gorgeous leather jackets that we've ever laid eyes on! Handmade in Greece by the esteemed Thedi Leathers Co., this shawl neck bomber crafted in the most supple midweight horsehide imaginable. It's a truly magnificent investment piece.
Please note that this is a very slim garment, and we recommend sizing up one from your typical Epaulet size (ex. order a Large if you typically wear a Medium).
The leather is genuine Front Quarter Horsehide from Italy. It is vegetable-tanned, stained, and glazed over the period of several months. The result is a remarkably soft skin with an incredible hand and a strong degree of water resistance. Much like our Wyatt Horsehide jacket, we've ordered this skin in a relatively light weight - making it more comfortable and slimmer fitting than the typical horsehide piece. Although all horsehide comes with grain marks and small scratches, we were very impressed with how uniform this leather is - which is a testament to both the excellent tannage and the sharp eye of Thedi's master cutter.
The details of this jacket include:
* Two-piece shawl collar with reinforced bottom stitching
* Solid one-piece back panel with no center seam
* Hand-sewn buttons and button-holes
* Two front patch pockets, one zippered interior pocket
* Heavyweight cotton twill liner
* Button cuff and size buckles to adjust the waist
We are absolutely smitten with this jacket, and we're confident that you will be too! It's a true heirloom piece that is designed to last for years.
