This bespoke leather sweatshirt is better than classic, it’s lightweight, comfortable, moves with you and covers your bases (and climates) in style.
I’ve made this leather sweatshirt in two different superfine, lightweight leathers. With a slight style variations, for 2 different clients.
Since I source all leathers and components on an individual basis according to each clients desires, and a style like this leather sweatshirt can be made up in any thin light weight leather. With the amazing array of gorgeous leathers out there. There is always a skin that will fit most any desire…
The burgundy leather sweatshirt is a very soft – almost naked – lambskin. The hand feel of this leather is completely natural. This type of leather in a lighter color is the kind that tends to mark up easily. However, in darker colors it’s a dream!
The blue leather is an even lighter weight, lambskin with a more standard semi-aniline finish. This finish adds both a gloss and additional repellency to stains and water marking. Both leathers worked up incredibly! Slightly heavier lambskins would also work, resulting in a heavier garment, for real fall/winter wear.
Either way this style can be worn as a shirt-layered or not. It can also be worn as outerwear, weather permitting.
The burgundy one is a minimally more relaxed cut with some elastic inset at the waist while the blue has a sleek finish. Details like this are chosen to suit each clients body type and muslins are always created to check details and fit. While I’ve made all different types of men’s shirts for both of these clients. These leather sweatshirts have been among their most loved…
Both are lined in 100% silk (or your choice of a 97/3 silk stretch) and completely hand-made, right here in our NYC studio from pattern to completion. Finally a shirt you can live in!
