Dame Drummer is a singer-songwriter, GRAMMY®-winning producer and award-winning filmmaker who has been a client for many years.  He has sent us a lot of friends in the music industry as customers and we have also done a lot of custom work for him. He texted West Coast Leather's brand founder and designer Skip Pas when he received a Grammy nomination as a producer.  He attended the awards show along with his 15-year-old son, Dame the 2nd, this February 5 in Los Angeles, where he received the award for Children's Album of the Year.

In November 2023, Dame became a "Grammy-Nominated producer" with his production work with Oakland-based group Alphabet Rockers, who have been nominated 4 times for Grammies.

Dame asked Skip for any ideas that he had for outfits to wear to the awards show and Skip said that they could make a tuxedo together.  Skip and Dame designed a custom aquamarine / teal and black tuxedo.  Together they imagined how it would look, starting with Skip taking all of the measurements.  The legs were more tapered and the body of the blazer is all tapered.  Skip took it all in for him and it fits him like a glove. 

It is designed with a black inlay strip in the shoulder and arms, and no pockets.

Dame is 6 feet, 8 inches tall.  It is specially fitted for Dame, with 39 inch sleeves.

They also wanted to have a matching outfit for his son, Dame the 2nd.  West Coast Leather wanted them to win an award for Best Dressed at the Grammy's and was excited to get recognition for the beautiful suit.  In fact, images of Dame and his tuxedo appeared on "Good Morning America" the very next morning.

The material is a shaved leather lambskin, with an aquamarine / teal satin breathable acetate / taffeta satin blended lining for our lightweight leather.

As Skip says, "look hot and stay cool" in lambskin leather....
