A Modern Leather Shirt

Modern Leather shirt

This Modern leather shirt is based – very loosely – on a 1940’s men’s shirt that the client brought in. The original shirt was in tatters, antique rayon does not have great longevity. But this new shirt will.

Actually, the only thing that survived the translation is the zipper closure. And that’s all good since many vintage garments don’t lend themselves to modern life or style. We wanted a sleek, stylish & wearable piece that could be worn many ways, with jeans, more formally, or simply to work. (Self-employment has it perks) So we happily lost all vintage reference.

Our client’s choice of leather works brilliantly here. It’s an almost paperweight bottle green French Lambskin. Lined in silk crepe de chine, it can be worn as a shirt or as a lightweight jacket over a thin layer.
