Joanna does quite a few things in life, but writing has been her favorite by far. She is a city girl who has moved to a beach town, and second to writing, will never tire of music, travel, and the friendships she makes as a result of both.

Independence Brothers is not affiliated with Lusso Leather and the opinions expressed here are my own.

Lusso Leather - Who Are They?

Lusso Leather is a Canadian based company that specializes in custom leather jackets. They are known for not only their custom made leather clothing but their handmade jackets as well.

Lusso Leather gives brief descriptions of each of their jackets, but you as the consumer are not limited by it. Each jacket, they explain, is custom made to order. Every part of the jacket can be customized to your liking, even if it differs from the description. Their jackets are listed as being made of 100% top grain lambskin leather. However, if you choose advanced customization when ordering, which is an option for every single jacket, you can get the jacket in any type of leather of your choosing. Lusso Leather has over 30 colors and prints of leather to choose from. You can even get jackets with a splash of color.

This also applies to the lining fabric and the color of the jacket. While most jacket descriptions state that it is 100% polyester lining, you have creative freedom with that as well. Linings are available in almost any solid color. In addition to that, they have striped and checkered pattern linings available as well.

Customized leather jacket

Their customizing expands to the details of the jacket as well. Lusso Leather tells its consumers that if there is something that you love about the jacket but there is an element that bothers you, you can leave a note in the comments section. This allows you to change an aspect of the jacket’s style or do something such as add or remove pockets.

Finally, and probably the most surprising yet pleasant aspect of their bespoke ordering journey is that if you see a men’s jacket that you want to get in a women’s fitting, they will do it for you. This is great because if your eye happens to catch a jacket that is not in your fitting. You can easily get it changed. The prices on these jackets range and are also hard to pinpoint. At their lowest, there are jackets on sale in the $200 range. However, they can go up to $700 when not on sale. Many of the jackets we saw were on clearance, so if there is something that catches your eye and is on the steeper side, it may possibly drop in price. It is also important to remember that if you do any advanced customization for the jacket, the price may increase depending on the options that you choose.

Should I customize or ready to wear?

Within the leather clothing world, this is the endless debate. We say there are benefits to both worlds, which you may have caught in a previous article. While there are plenty of great already made jackets, having a custom leather jacket allows you to choose your color, style, lining, and leather. Instead of having to choose from things that already exist, you can create your own masterpiece with the leather jacket company. That way, when you wear it, it truly is a reflection of you. No one else out there is going to have your exact jacket. Because it is something that you created, it is unique to just you, and that knowledge itself is pretty awesome. Your jacket becomes more of a statement as well as an extension of yourself. Outerwear is the first thing people see on someone, especially when outside. Now, the first thing anyone sees is more a glimpse into who you are a person.

There is the other side to the coin, however. Some people may not enjoy making decisions, or have strong opinions about facets of their jacket. Having something that exists already and is ready to wear provides a different kind of ease to ordering your jacket. Ready-made jackets provide the convenience of not having to make any tough fashion decisions, and they tend to come in at a lower price tag. If you are shopping on a tighter budget, then ready to wear jackets may be the route for you to take for the time being.

Whether you go ready to wear or bespoke, there is no wrong answer. Having a leather jacket is an expansion on yourself and your wardrobe, no matter which way you go about it. It is an exciting investment that you will have for years to come.

Choose your jacket color: Lusso Leather offers many options for jacket colors. They have the traditional black and brown, but they also have other options,such as red, green, blue, gray, and pink.

Choose the jacket inside lining: The Jacket inside lining is just as important as the inside, as this provides your inner warmth and comfort. Lusso Leather offers a few options for the lining of your jacket:

  • Bemberg lining with premium matching color - this lining is versatile and less costly. It is the most common material used in suits and jackets, and it is available in all colors.

Choose if you want to add insulation lining: We know that leather jackets can be used for fashion and warmth, and is good for a range of varying temperatures.

It is a lightweight mid-layer synthetic material lining that provides a high level of insulation for colder weather.

Choose the zipper teeth color: The zipper teeth covers that will be used for your pockets and closures are available in various colors, such as gold, brass, silver, charcoal, and bronze.
