Himel Brothers Leather would be nowhere without the support of friends and our customers. This month with the generous time of Matt Barnes Photography http://mattbarnesphoto.tumblr.com/ , my friend James Thompson, and the excellent team at Clutch Magazine in Japan we are very proud to have this story featured. Clutch is a cutting edge magazine featuring the best of the best of craftsmanship globally. Hopefully there will be an english version coming soon!
I have been developing some really hot women’s jackets of late. Because I am starting to get busy, and because blogging on all of the sites is time consuming, I have not been able to share the stages that got me to this final product. That being said, there has been quite a barrage of emails in my in box asking me when I am coming out with a women’s jacket. Well this is the finished product. Two versions have been tested so far, one longer model and one shorter one. This shorty that I made here is done in Canadian Buffalo leather with the camo lining and in goatskin with the black lining. The buffalo is a grainy soft slightly stretchy hand, and by contrast the goatskin is very very tough to the touch and has much less give. Each effect acts differently on the pattern but I am very very happy with the result!
