With people like the Apprentice’s recently fired Kevin Shaw showing how leather jackets can look bad, it’s becoming more important to get a tailored jacket regardless of what material it’s made from. Gar-De are a New York design collective who aim to ‘reinvent the highest quality materials into innovative designs’. They chose leather for their debut collection and focused exclusively on it.
While you can find any number of ill-fitting leather jackets on the market, finding one that mixes suit-like tailoring with the ubiquitous biker influence is pretty hard to come by. The range becomes available from Autumn, but the price range will be from $1,680 upwards – so start saving now.
