Through the helpful hands of the startup called ‘The Jacket Maker’
If you do something by yourself, for yourself, chances are you’d do it brilliantly. Why? Because it's for YOU! Because no one can understand you better than you. Plus, we folks, enjoy doing it for ourselves.
In the business world, especially fashion, there is a phenomenon, called ‘customization’. Where companies allow individuals or its customers to modify/change something in its products based on their individual needs.
“Oh, you don’t like this design on the t-shirt; we’ll change it. Or better, would you like something of your own to be printed on this?” Similarly, “I don’t like this upper pocket on the coat. Can I have it removed?” And so on and so forth, there are literally like hundreds of examples of customization and we love them all :)
Leather jackets are a wardrobe staple, a timeless investment that will last for many years. Although there are lots of players who sell good off-the-shelves leather jackets and may offer made-to-measure tailoring, if you’re like one of us, who want to reflect your own identity and creativity through your jackets, you’d go for a custom jacket.
Moreover, aside from expressing yourself, you’d also like to not dig deep in your pockets when buying a custom leather jacket. Then, there is the matter of finding a reliable company which offers quality and full-custom jackets. Because, big jacket manufacturers only allow limited modifications, as they want their products to reflect their own identity and not of others or of customers’.
The Jacket Maker fills this gap brilliantly!

What’s more impressive is that The Jacket Maker’s uses full-grain leather for its jacket, which is the best quality leather out there, yet the jackets are so economical. It could be to do with its direct-to-consumer approach, passing on the benefits of not involving distributors and retailers to consumers.
