New Jackets: Oil Skin Avro and Brimaco
Ive been working hard over here making jackets for my clients. Every month I am inspired to work on new experiments, purchase new tannages of leather and try new design ideas. Part of the prototyping process is about finding the right combinations of design features, materials and colour combinations. These two are recently made and sold. The Avro is a standard stock Himel Brothers jacket and this one is a luminescent oil tanned leather. The cut is half way between a sports jacket and a flight jacket and is typical of the period. The other jacket is a pigment finished horsehide with a hair on racing stripe. It is a replica of the famous Brimaco Raider cafe racer jacket. It was my first one and it worked out beautifully!
