There are few commonly known bespoke leather jacket makers both in the U.S. and abroad and although their luster has waned for me some time ago due to incredibly high pricing as well as design shortfalls, Mark's work has definitely rejuvenated my interest.

Mark Fisher at Superior Flight Apparel is a gentleman these companies need to look out for. His craftsmanship is phenomenal and prices are hard to contend with - of course, as the economy continues to shift so will pricing, but even then I don't feel other companies can hold a stick to it.

Longtime contributor to this blog, Steve C., is a two-time return customer to this up-and-coming brand from Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, and his latest acquisition is an amazing 1930's style Horsehide jacket.

Based off a 1930's aviator jacket, Mark captured everything one could ever wish for in an original without having to liquidate personal assets.

I'm currently working with Mr. Fisher on having my own custom jacket made and couldn't be more excited.

Contact Mr. Fisher via e-mail to commission your own piece of art.

Here's Steve's first commission with Mr. Fisher.  It's a hybrid A-1/A-2 aviator jacket from the 1930's as worn by George Brent in two different movies, God’s Country and the Woman (1937) and Racket Busters (1938).
