We’re old school – but in the best possible way.

We believe in making products, like back in the day, that will last you a lifetime. We only use the best quality, locally sourced materials. We love retro styles for their ability to outlast trends. Our products are all handmade by quality seamstresses at our factory in Bedfordview. This is your dream jacket, so we create it to your exact specifications, from leather, linings, zips and finishing’s, your jacket will be tailored to fit you and your lifestyle. Our passion may have started with biker jackets, but that same passion now flows into an appreciation for fashion with substance and high-quality leather. Old school simply stays cool.
