A huge trend we are seeing with our clients of all ages is acquiring vintage leather jackets, repurposing and restyling them.  Every day we are getting 2-3 phone calls with requests for these services.  So what does this usually entail?  Any or all of the following items:

1) Slimming the arms

2) Reconditioning, which takes three different treatments

3) Refreshing or changing the lining

4) Adding buttons or new zippers

5) Re-stitching all broken seams

This allows for our clients to wear unique, one-of-a-kind pieces that are sometimes not able to be found anywhere else.  Vintage clothes are always a very popular item because they oftentimes have classic lines, and are made of durable material that will stand the test of time. Or, it may hold a special significance for a person, such as a family heirloom.

We have also done a lot with repurposing special items such as luxury Louis Vuitton bags.  There is a huge trend in repurposing items whether to have a one-of-a-kind item, or for upcycling.  In addition, one of the purposes of vintage is sustainable fashion.  

Come to our store to have custom tailoring for your favorite pieces to make sure that they work perfectly for you.  Because what's old is new again...
