Leather, suede, shearling and fur experts




Nothing compares to the look and feel of a jacket made from the finest leather. Every era has put its particular spin on the leather jacket. New styles are born, but the old one’s don’t die; they just make room at the top. This is why an old leather jacket is never out of style, it simply becomes ‘retro’. Leather jackets were worn in the early 1900’s by aviators and military members. During World War II they became know as “bomber jackets”. Later in 1940’s became popular in Hollywood, from For Whom The Bell Tolls, India Jones, Grease, Top Gun, Flight Club, The Matrix, and so on. Leather jackets also became famous in the streets of New York City by members of the Black Panthers, whether its a biker, bomber, reefer or blazer styles, leather jackets have only grown in popularity.

Over the past few years shearling coats have gotten popular for many reasons. With insulating property that providing great heat during extreme cold weather and consisting of extensive air pockets, allowing body heat to escape makes them great to wear in warm weather feeling comfortable and looking luxurious all at the same time. Shearling coats are strictly defined from lamb or sheep pelt from a variety of different styles from slanted pockets, a number of buttons, and cuffs that can be adjusted to suit the taste of the wearer.
