The Jacket Maker x Michael 84

Hey guys!

I hope you are well, the weather is turning and we’re really starting to get into Autumn right about now. That means a bit of a change up in the wardrobe, wearing more knits and sweats, and less Summer clothing. It also means a change over of jackets, from my denim jackets to leather. I never used to be a fan of a leather jacket, but a couple of years ago I got my first one, and I’ve never looked back. They’re pretty timeless, so adding one to your wardrobe is something you should seriously consider.

I have a new addition to my leather jacket line up! The Jacket Maker got in touch and told me about their collection. Not only do they have a large collection of ready to wear pieces, they also do custom jackets tailored to you, and this is what I went for and I’m wearing here.

The Jacket Maker - Bespoke Leather Jacket

If you just want something from their collection, they have a serious amount of jackets to choose from. There’s plenty of different style, including biker jackets, shearling, suede, mid length and bomber. Colours are also plentiful, with a range of different browns, as well as classic black, and more statement colours such as green, blue and red. They really do have a large number of options and styles to choose from, so if it’s a leather jacket you’re looking for, they’ll have it.

Custom Fit

For my leather jacket it’s a bespoke leather jacket, and I love it. First of all the fit is brilliant. I have ordered a few custom fitted things online before, and it’s always a worry that I measure incorrectly or something else goes wrong, but the process was really easy, and when I tried on the jacket it fits so well. The length is perfect, as is the overall fit. For the colour I went for brown, a traditional and timeless colour. I already have a black leather jacket which I like, and my old brown leather no longer fits well, so this is the perfect replacement.

The Details

The quality of the leather is really nice. It’s a very soft leather and I would say that it’s a mid weight, a little heavier than one of my other jackets, but lighter than my older heavy brown leather. For the detailing, to the front I went for some zip pockets to the chest, this was to stop the jacket looking too plain and to break up the design a little bit. I also have side zip pockets for practicality, inside pockets as well as zipped sleeve openings which I really like. When it comes to the collar I love a band collar, I think they look really stylish and edgy, so that’s the look I went for.

Michael 84 Style - Leather Jacket

If you are looking for your first leather jacket this season or just want to refresh your current wardrobe with a new one, I can recommend checking out The Jacket Maker here and taking a look at their collection. You can pick from their collection which is ready to go, but I recommend going for a custom made jacket, which is not too expensive and you can get the absolute perfect fit, and a jacket tailored to your very own specification.

For the rest of my style, I went for a plain white tee, keeping the look of the top half classic, along with my indigo selvedge denim jeans. The shoes are brown brogues, and I teamed these with a brown leather belt to complete the outfit.
