Everything for sale on Beckett Simonon is a pre-order. Each month, a new collection becomes available, and only the number of reserved items get handcrafted by tradespeople in family-owned and operated factories in Europe and South America.
As you can imagine, not carrying inventory keeps Beckett Simonon’s prices down, and is better for the environment, though let’s be clear, we’re talking about high-end leather goods here.
Come back for our experience with each month’s offerings.
Leather shoes are nice and all, but Beckett’s badass Atlas Biker Jacket is the kind of indulgence we want to see small brands spend their skill on. The Atlas fits like a leather jacket is supposed to (like a second skin), but is soft right out of the box, offering full range of movement the moment you put it on.
Made from full-grain Argentinian calf leather with a cotton-linen blend lining... The leather is hefty and durable... As it wears in, the leather will shape to your body resulting in a perfect fit. ...also includes solid metallic hardware such as YKK Japanese-made Everbright zippers.
If you’ve been looking for a black leather jacket and can handle a little edginess, pull the trigger on this. I’ve paid more than twice these prices for motorcycle jackets this nice.
- Use code VALENTINE to get the Atlas Biker Jacket for $299.
- Use code VALENTREE to get the Dowler Boots for $199 + a free pair of cedar shoe trees.
For November we checked out the Sutton Derby, a versatile shoe handmade in Portugal. While I’m typically focused on innovations like better ergonomics and support, different materials, or ways of eschewing laces in my shoe shopping, I can appreciate a beautiful, well-made leather dress shoe. They’re also very comfortable with surprisingly great arch support.
In October we checked out Beckett’s Bomber Jacket to get a feel for the brand, and I’m wearing it as I write this. There are a lot of great details here, like the gold hardware (which I’d typically hate), and great-looking lining. The jacket fits like a glove (as leather should), and wears a bit like a cardigan-bomber hybrid. We’re especially psyched to check out their next non-shoe products.
