$800 is to be expected for custom leatherwork...If you want something food that is I once had a custom jacket I designed made a few years ago (wasn't a very original design like a couple I made later on, it looked like a standard motorcycle jacket with a few more details) and that cost me little over $200...But once the initial excitement of getting it had passed I started noticing some flaws and corners cut on parts of it. It's real leather but quite a thin and flimsy leather compared to some of the more sturdy, store-bought ones I had and that's when I learned to be skeptical of the quality of any custom leather clothing item that cheap
Having said that, I've had little luck finding someone to make me a new and better jacket for some more recent designs I made last year which I ain't gonna waste on that first tailoring company But $800 compared to the quotes I got from certain places is actually a bargain! I'd love to know what site or person this guy went to for his if you know
Oh, and his clothing matches his hair and eye colour too! That's pretty cool
If that's the jacket I'm thinking of, it was actually made by the same person who made the jacket from the show itself. There was quite a bit of discussion about it on the Replica Prop Forum when the pics of it surfaced.
