Custom Leather Jacket Makers in Tdot?

I can't believe I'm coming to Tribe for fashion help but I thought I might as well since someone here must've come across a place that did custom leathers in Toronto.
Or really, any place that sells a good motorcross leather jacket that's not fucking covered in zippers or worn in or sells for $4000.

I'm lookin' in the $300 - $600 range.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I can't find anything online.

Danier sucks.
The one thin and high quality leather jacket they have was freakin' mustard yellow.

I've been wanting to get a leather jacket custom-made for a long time now. I hope someone posts some answers in this thread! (esp. since you specified a lower price range)

The leather jackets in the stores always fit me horribly.

There is this little scruffy Iranian guy on Bayview just south of Eglinton below the massage parlor on the West side who told me he could make a jacket based on an existing pattern or even if i had another jacket to show him. Price 400 bucks.

I wanted to do a PVC jacket signprinted with some of my photos (sure it would be a bit loud but WTF) and he was the only leather tailor I found who would even consider doing a job like that.

There is also another guy on Yonge just south of Wellesly on the West side - the store has moccasins and shit in the window. He has a leather tailor shop at the back for making stuff. I don't know what that would cost...

Finally and probably the best bet would be to go and see Marty at Northbound and see if he could design something to your specs - it would be expensive though but would be super hot I'd imagine.

Yah, that's what I thought.

I'm willing to pay $800 for a Marc, Hugo Boss or a Versace if they fucking made small leather jackets for anorexics.
Even smalls don't fit me.

Okay, now I feel like newstyle666666666666666666666.

try northbound, they are more than willing to do custom work and they start at about $500. and some of the simpler styles are not barf.


docs and danier are both lame.

Found one today after my meeting.
Strolling down Yonge, near Rosedale station.

Angelo's. 37 years in business. He was really nice. Old Italian man. Let me draw the style, showed me his leather samples (calf skin is looking the best) and is offering me the floor price for a custom jacket.

Any lining, any pockets, any zippers that I want.

Price: $600 - $1000.
Still steep but it could last a long time. Hmm...

VAL? Whaddya think.
