How to Buy Custom Leather Apparel as a Holiday Gift

December 18, 2019

Are you still trying to figure out what to buy your friends or family for the holidays? Although their tastes may differ, something they can all agree on is how good they’ll look in leather apparel this winter. This is why you should consider getting them custom leather clothing as a gift in Denver this holiday season. To get started, here are a few steps you should begin taking before local leather apparel inventories run too low. 

Get Proper Measurements
Although you can purchase your friend or family member a small, medium, large, or extra large sizing for leather apparel, it’s best to get them clothing that’s custom-fit. But how do you get this done without them knowing? Although it may seem impossibly hard, it’s easier than you think. You can get an idea of what their measurements are by “borrowing” an article of closing that is well-fit to their figure and taking down the arm, waist, neck, leg, hand size, as well as any other necessary measurements you might need. Plus, you can give them back the borrowed article of clothing in an hour or so following taking their measurements. They might not even notice you took it at all. 

Know the Style of the Person You’re Shopping For
After getting the proper measurements, you should figure out the style of the person you’re shopping for. After all, you don’t want to go through all this effort in buying a custom-fit leather jacket or pants just to have them returned. Plus, some leather shops don’t have a return policy in place for custom-made clothing. However, you can figure out the style of the person you’re shopping for by bringing them to a local leather shop and having them browse the racks of leather apparel. Once they find something they like, you can then use that style to buy a great custom-fit jacket, pair of pants, or gloves for them this holiday season. 

Keep the Tags and Receipts
Once you’ve bought your friend or family member their new custom leather apparel, you should make sure to keep the tag and receipts. Although you can remove the tag on the clothes themselves, make sure you keep it in a small ziplock bag with the receipt, in case the recipient needs to return the leather apparel due to it not fitting or it not being their style. However, it’s essential that you keep in mind that some leather shops don’t allow returns for custom-made clothing. 

Although it may seem impossible to buy custom leather apparel as a holiday gift this late into the season, there are plenty of ways to get proper measurements and understand the style of who you’re giving it to. Hopefully, the tips above could offer you some necessary insight of buying custom leather apparel for your friend or family member secretly. So, what are you waiting for?
