This python skin and leather shirt was a private commission, meant for both stage and street wear.
It features detailing in natural python skin with a semi-matte finish and cordovan lacing.
To go with the very dark – but NOT black – natural markings of the snake, we chose a deep espresso color Italian lambskin for the body of the shirt and the matching hand-laced work along the seams and edges.
The espresso color is so deep that it reads as black in many lights but has much more life to it. The shirt is fully lined with a light weight rayon so it can be worn on it’s own or as a lightweight jacket. In certain skins a leather shirt like this could be made completely unlined – creating an even more lightweight piece.
Our client often dresses down the matching espresso jeans with a black leather blazer and they work beautifully together.
One nice thing about using snake in combination with leather is that it can be a more economical option. So whether your project is a python skin and leather shirt, or a mixed medium jacket. It’s a nice way to bump things up!
We can even have custom colors created for you. This super premium service is available for snakeskin and alligator and has additional costs and lead times.
Remember, each and every piece we make is individually designed, patterned, hand-cut and constructed in our NYC Studios.
Prices on custom made garments will vary according to the type of leather used, the amount of leather required, as well as the specific details of each individual garment. Current market and exchange rates also affect prices.
