Frank Clegg and his team are legendary for sourcing the most beautiful leathers in the world. Unlike a typical smooth leather hide, shrunken bison is not stretched during the drying process. Instead, it is laid flat and allowed to condense during the drying process, creating a unique grain that is tick, rugged and uniquely textured. This also makes the hide more resistant to the elements and less likely to show scuff marks or patina over time. We appoint our shrunken leather products with a smooth belting leather which creates a great contrast for the bags while also providing a structured carry.
“WOW! The quality of the fabric and craftsmanship amazing. This is what American menswear should be. Bravo!"
"The comfort of AOS clothing is second to none. I literally wear my pieces everyday. Thank you!"
"I just received my topcoat, suit and cashmere sweater. I am blown away! All three are 100X better in person than they are in the pictures."
With this one Frank and I wanted to create a garment bag that was as beautiful as a piece of luggage. Not just some nylon sleeve to keep the dust off your suit, but something that you can actually travel with in style. I see so many guys in airports carrying "dusters" - those cheap cloth garment bags that you sometimes get free with a purchase. These are not meant for travel, they're meant to protect your suits from moths in the closet.
This is nothing like that. It has a pure leather exterior with a two-layer bottom and an unbreakably strong Sunbrella canvas interior (a weather-proof fabric typically used for outdoor awnings and canopies). Long story short, this thing is built to last the test of time, and will only get better as the leather takes on a patina.
