Custom Unfinished Horsehide Leather Jacket Project

Aero Leathers x Epaulet

May we introduce an exceptional made to order opportunity! We've secured enough gorgeous mid-weight unfinished horsehide to craft 10 custom jackets for 2018. We'll accept orders for this incredible leather until Thursday, Sept 20th.. as long as our leather inventory holds out. Delivery is slated for around Thanksgiving. Each piece will be made to your personal specs in Scotland by Aero Leathers. The price shown is a 50% deposit, you will be required to pay a balance before the jacket is delivered to you. 

This gorgeous and supple leather is one of the premier skins offered by Comipel - one of the finest leather houses in the world. As a Front Quarter Horsehide, its sourced from the most desirable and consistent section of the animal. The skins are vegetable tanned in drums for five weeks and lightly oiled. The final product has all the natural markings and grain of the original skin. Normal wear, moisture, and sunshine will all darken the leather over time - imparting a gorgeous deep caramel patina. And despite its unfinished nature, it offers the full strength and long-wearing durability of Comipel's other superlative horsehide products.

You can choose from our Cafe Racer, Double Rider, or Highwayman shapes. These exclusive fits are designed to work consistently with our typical Epaulet shirts and jackets. With a full range of sizes and a variance of up to 2" in both body and sleeve length, we can provide you with entirely customized measurements.

After that, choose your hardware color, pocket layout, and liner. Your jacket will be made expressly for you and delivered approximately end Sept / mid October 2018.

Detailed measurements are available, and we are always happy to assist customers via phone or email to achieve the best sizing.

Working with our exclusive model, you'll be able to customize your leather jacket with these options:  

Body Length & Sleeve Length: Order our standard, or adjust length in .5" increments from dropdown menu.

Chest Pockets: varies per design

Hip Pockets: varies per design

Cuff Zipper Placement: Zippers can be prominently exposed on the side cuff or hidden behind two besom seams in the back. 

Zipper: Choose Talon flat zipper pull or Valden chain pull. Also, choose brass or nickel.

Liners: Choose from solid cotton or a classic Scottish tartan.

MEASUREMENTS

Chest is measured from the front, laid flat, from one side to the other at 1 inch below the armpit seam

Shoulder is measured from the back, laid flat, from one shoulder seam to the other

Sleeve is measured from the shoulder seam to the end of the cuff

Length is measured from the back, laid flat, from where the collar attaches to the jacket to the bottom of the tail

Please note: you must allow up to 0.5" in variance from all measurements shown. Folding and sewing thick pieces of leather can and will result in slight differences from the cut piece measurements. This is unavoidable for the initial make of the jacket, but it becomes a non-issue with a bit of wear. Each leather jacket molds to you and softens with use. Measurements change and tend to even out. Small inconsistencies tend to go away as the jacket takes on your personal shape and develops its own character.
