Back in the 1950s men's leather jackets were made famous by the likes of Marlon Brando and James Dean and notoriously worn by petrol heads and punks. Thankfully, today you don’t need to be succumbed to sub cultures or have a motorbike addiction to wear one.
A leather jacket is one of the coolest pieces of outerwear a man can own. Name another item that comes packaged with as much heritage, attitude and rugged appeal. Which type of jacket you opt for depends on what you want your jacket to say about you.
The type of leather you decide on depends on what you want from your jacket. Premium, supple, and with a butter-soft sheen, aniline leather is your go-to. Or nubuck for the more buffed appearance and suede-like touch. Nappa leather has similar characteristics to aniline, but the greater pigmentation levels make it suitable for more robust wear.
I’m calling this jacket the father of all jackets. The brown leather jacket has transcended through the fashion decades from the Air Force to a key wardrobe staple, without looking like an extra from Indiana Jones.
All our leather jackets are hand-crafted from premium quality materials to produce luxury garments that last. Hamish is expertly crafted from supple nubuck leather that will only age more beautifully with wear. We create the nubuck finish by lightly buffing the smooth leather surface to create a suede-like touch. It creates a no-sheen, subtle texture, and we finish the jacket with iconic brushed metal hardware. It’s the perfect choice for an everyday jacket. It can be a tough one finding the right balance of smart casual, but Hamish certainly does.
A traditional café racer design, Charlie is inspired by the biker and motorcycle era. Rising to fame from the likes of iconic Marlon Brando and summer-lovin’ Danny Zuko, the biker design is timeless. Giving a nod to the racing heritage (but stripping back the collar and T-Birds logo), Charlie is crafted from UK sourced aniline leather for a soft sheen appearance. Fashioned with a buckle press stud collar, press stud cuffs and side adjusters with racing cream leather contrasting stripe, no detail is spared. With over 100 years of culture to its name, it’s beauty is within its versatility as an all occasion, no-nonsense jacket.
