A Philly-based maker of ethical, made-to-measure leather goods, Independence Brothers has always straddled the boundary of Classic and Modern. For decades the humble leather jacket has kept a space at the forefront of everyday fashion, yet finding the right fit and style is pie-in-the-sky for anyone of humble means.

They jumped into production head-first, and came to me for a logo after setting up shop. In the end the logo stayed as-is with minimal changes, but the process was a worthwhile exploration of postwar style, the many meanings of “bespoke,” and so, so many birds.
