Let's not forget about the leather artwork which you can have added to your garment; This is our specialty, and something we offer that most other companies can't even get close to. Leather art will make your piece more special, so you can to standout and shine. We collect a 50% deposit at this time.
3. GET MEASURED & FITTED.
When you are satisfied with the design and details, we will take your measurements for your custom pattern, which we keep. Once the pattern is made, we will cut and sew a test sample for the first fitting. The test sample is an exact replica of your garment, made in heavy denim, that allows us to refine the fit and design to your approval. Fittings take place in front of a mirror, so you can see how the sample looks and tell us how you like it, or what you want changed.
4. WE MAKE YOUR GARMENT.
After you approve the test sample, we start meticulously constructing your garment. The whole process takes approximately 4 weeks, depending on your availability for fittings. Prices for custom leather garments start at approximately $2,500 depending on the style.
