Designer over Mass Production


Alexander McQueen once said, "It’s a new era in fashion - there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together." Fashion today is not about blindly following the trends set by a few. It is about expression, individuality and style. In a world where homogeneity is prevalent and the metropolitan culture is spreading like an epidemic, fashion gives us the chance to stand out and mould our identities in whatever unique style we prefer. Custom leather jackets are one example.
 
Custom leather jackets for men have a twofold purpose. They not only help people ensure their jackets match their individual tastes, but customized clothing facilitates people in terms of fitting and size as well. Take for instance the wrestler, the great Khali. His above seven feet frame will require specially-made jackets. He cannot just pick something off the rack. It just isn’t feasible. The idea of mass-manufacturing was a revolutionary idea during the nineteenth century. However, it had some giant drawbacks, including the alienation of people with sizes and heights that were grossly beyond the averages. Custom leather jackets are also great for all the die-hard fans out there. You fall in love with a jacket in a movie; well what else are custom leather jackets for men and women for? Customers simply send a picture of the jacket they desire and it will be designed for them. 
 
According to Karl Lagerfeld, “fashion is a language that creates itself in clothes to interpret reality”. Attention to clothes is important as it is a portrayal of a person’s own unique self. Clothes are a ‘language’, they help people to speak. They are our comfort zone as well as our personal statement to the world. Custom leather jackets are a beautiful idea because they help us individualize a style; an entity that has unfortunately become rather common. Custom leather jackets for men involve choosing your own logos, colours and etcetera. By having them made-to-order, a separate touch can be inserted. Rather than wearing a simple, black leather jacket, you can give it your own special twist.
 
Buying ready-made clothes lacks the personal touch that customized clothes have. As Marie Von Ebner-Eschenbach so aptly said, as soon as fashion is universal, it is out of date. Thus, wearing mass-produced clothes cannot be accurately termed as fashion. After all, fashion is about dissecting oneself from the masses. It is about screaming to be heard, not about joining the silent hoards. Custom leather jackets help you do that. Custom leather jackets for men, for example, can be designed to resemble the leather overcoat worn by Keanu Reeves in The Matrix. This does not necessarily have to be for people who are fans of the movie. Instead, anyone resembling the physique of the actor can want this overcoat keeping in mind the fact that Keanu Reeves looked great in it. Because isn’t that what we do? Generally, people will notice how something looks good on another person and think that it might look good on them as well. Custom leather jackets help accomplish that.
