Electric Leather Studio?
I think the No. 2 Rainbow Country Sports Jacket is to similar.
My tip would be a trucker jacket and a shearling jacket
Artelier Savas ?
Had to google that, not sure i have seen a worst fitting D pocket...
Hard to believe they want $2700 dollars for that, and have the guts to describe it as "epitomizes cool elegance".
There are IMO far better jackets one can buy for that amount...
She does fully bespoke jackets starting at $5000
Look it up on YouTube. There’s a short film about the process. It’s quite interesting. Think it has $5000 in the title.
I think @Monitor has it right...
a vintage cafe racer.
Your collection is stellar, but could be rounded out with a cool “pre-loved” piece
Another member - @Superfluous has a similarly outstanding collection of modern jackets, and his vintage Buco J-100 is the crowning jewel IMO.
Don't mean to sound rude, but seeing what she does for $2700 doesn't make me want to give her $5000!
I'd rather get two custom Lost worlds, or 4 custom Vansons, i can think of at least 20 jackets i would buy before i gave her $5000!
I actually saw the movie on youtube a couple years ago, had the same thoughts about it back then.
To me it looks like she is aiming at having her name and the exclusivity be what makes the jacket be worth a lot, not the quality of the jacket itself.
Like look at the top stitch on the shoulder of that bespoke $5000 jacket:
It's so wavy it looks like it was stiched in the dark, i would not be happy seeing that on an $100 H&M jacket, let alone on a $5000 jacket!
Edit: just noticed the inconsistent stitching on the left side of the collar point, you can see a bunch of super tight stitches, then one giant one, then it gets back to normal stitches. Not very neat...
Not disputing that one bit. Like I said , it was interesting.
Wow... We're getting quite exotic here! This to me is alot like wine. There are some really high quality stuff out there where price seems to meet quality, or you get good bang for the buck if you wish. This seems to be the segment between around 1500 to 3000USD. Above that you pay alot for the last percent of perfection, or maybe you even get lured into thinking that just because it is extremely expensive it must be great. From what I can see from your great suggestions there are quite a few really nice options for custom made jackets out there for a reasonable price, or at least a high price that still sort of can make sense...
If you do come to London, let me know, I would be happy to show you something different
And I will second Electric Leather Studio, I have a lot of idea to go through them, sadly delayed by Covid.
You could also go for a short jacket with buttons, Thedi has some great ones
You can explore new colours as well as in red obviously
Your collection is very serious!
I am intrigued by the thought of vintage Buco... Could you offer some advice on how to go about that? I live in Norway, which means in practical life NO vintage markert. I have to rely on online purchases or personal contacts. Would love to hear your opinions on this!
I remember the vid, jacket and a hug and lunch date.
Great to have a fellow norwegian here. Your collection is pretty amazing already, but I would suggest something longer to compliment it further. Something like a Freewheelers Switchyard would blend in really well with the other jackets and boots you already have and it would be perfect for those chillier spring and autumn days
Nice to hear from you! Sure would need something long and warm these days... It is mighty cold out there! I see a returning advice is get something longer, so I'll have to check what my options are there. Freewheelers is not a bad place to start!
Mn. I like the look of the zips, but the fit - and the overly long body - look cheap, imo. There are some brands out there whose pricing seems to me far more to do with market positioning and perceived exclusivity than quality, but hey ho.
That jacket is like a sad, tired old Vanson Chopper with low self esteem. Makes me sad and tired just looking at it!
