What’s your MODE?

Happy New Year, everyone! How was your holidays? Hope you are recovering from the overloaded festivities (or lack thereof)!

Yes, it is the time of the year to made new resolutions! Have you made a list? and are they very well forgotten already after 2 weeks? Well, it’s ok, don’t be discouraged, you are not alone. Making a change in life is a long hard struggle. It is not meant to happen overnight. Every little move is probably insignificant but some where down the road, when you look back, you will see the progress you made.

To keep us on the right track though, we have to know our mode. What’s your mode?Mode is a way of living. Mode is how you express yourself. You can have many modes, work mode, play mode, family mode, running mode, bumming mode.

Search for it, get to know it, stick to it. And then you are ready for the future.

Wishing you good health, good spirit and good fortune in the coming year!

Sewing at Mode & Pelle

Precision

It takes at least 3 years for a beginner to master the skills of sewing leather.
• Year 1 – straight lines, hidden lines, top stitches
• Year 2 – intricate parts such as pocket openings.
• Year 3 – Joining curves, such as sleeves and collars and putting on ribbing and zippers

Why does it take so long to master the skill? Because no mistake is allowed! Imagine! There is no eraser, there is no correction pen. If stitches are undone (snip, snip), there will be needle holes left behind and the panel has to be thrown away.

It’s like any live performance. Precision and Precision. Kudos to our master sewers who delivered the best workmanship piece after piece! ^^

Our experienced cutters are master artisans. Leather hides are their canvas. They cut and trace every panel by hand knowing exactly how they want the jacket to look once it is assembled. No machine can replace the masters’ artistry and no two jackets are the same!

Distress Vintage Biker Jacket

Rarely has a single jacket generated so much interest in television. Not because it compliment the figure of the leading lady or make the character stand out from a crowd or revealing a new trend in fashion. No, no, no. it is much more than what catches the eyes. The jacket has become a legitimate character in the cast and it has its own story to tell.

The distressed cowhide, the vintage biker style, the animal print trimmings and hidden studs all integrated seamlessly together. It embodies the toughness, hardship, basic instinct and mystery of the leading lady.

Do you have a jacket that shows your story? I wouldn’t go so far as to have my jacket run over by a car to make it distressed and interesting.

Simply treasure every crease, stain and mark. That’s what makes your jacket awesome and irreplaceable! ^^
