Cromford Leather Company

Blue Hoffman Suede Jacket




While a leather biker jacket is a run-of-the-mill staple, the safari style of the Hoffman jacket is an exceptional alternative. Crafted from buttery soft suede lambskin, sourced from a family-run tannery in Naples, this piece by Cromford Leather Company features epaulettes and top-stitched bellows pockets, finished off with a half belt and buckled collar detail.

The story

As a testament to Cromford Leather Company’s expertise, some of England’s leading fashion names – Margaret Howell, Mulberry and Holland & Holland, to name a few – entrust the company with their leatherwork. Founded in 1971 by Savile Row graduate Alan Sprooles and Peter Goodall, it operated as The General Leather Company for 45 years, carving a name for itself as a champion of British manufacturing, crafting read-to-wear and bespoke pieces out of leather, suede and shearling. In 2016, under the helm of Pauline Harris, the company was renamed in homage to the birthplace of Britain’s industrial revolution; Cromford, Derbyshire.
