Based out of California, USA & RAK, United Arab Emirates The jacket Maker are a group of young, exciting individuals looking to disrupt the outerwear industry. They are changing the rules of fashion retail. Their new rules empower customers and give them control over what they choose to wear.
We started the bespoke service keeping in mind simple solutions to three problems.
Check out my Instagram for the full video of my first impression of the jacket.
This is a jacket for the long term. The bespoke has always existed but contrary to fast-fashion, it has never been accessible to all. Their custom leather jackets start at $350 equals too 192 pounds being as affordable as mass-produced leather jackets is the best solution to bespoke accessibility.
The Jacket Maker wanted to make the bespoke process as easy and convenient as possible. With The Jacket Maker, you get a dedicated design consultant to work on your custom project without any charges and final commitment to purchase.
I didn’t experience this at all. I just chose a spicy red leather jacket, guessed my size and hoped for the best.
It actually is a tad to long in the sleeves it does not match the picture. As the picture the sleeves look shorter. I know on-line sometimes the wrong picture is uploaded, but at this price you certainly don’t want to get it wrong.
I like tight fitted jackets and this is a tad too big in the arms both in length and upper arms. But it is easy to drive in and that is important.
The cut, darts over my breasts is nice.
I like the jacket on me zipped up.
I was surprised at the weight of it, it is perfect for travel as it is so lightweight. It is a leather jacket for autumn wear.
How often do you find a product which you like but there is something you want to change about it. At the Jacket Maker they believe you should never settle for anything almost perfect. I agree with this. The jacket is not perfect on me regarding size but that’s OK.
I do like the collar and the details on the sleeves. The zip quality I am a little worried about. But time will tell on that.
In this era of fast fashion even when one pays that extra cash. The disposable attitude to fashion is worse than ever. It is a jacket I would not hold on too.
I gave this jacket away as it really was not a jacket for me. I am all about quality leather items. It was too big and not funky enough for me. it’s a jacket for a more conservative personality.
It’s important to buy a leather jacket that suits who you are.
