Shea Glaser is #wearingwest14th New Yorker Jacket on the streets of New York…. it’s a real pinch-the-screen-moment!

“My search for the perfect, consciously made leather jacket has finally come to an end, and I’ll be living in this beauty for the foreseeable future.”

Journey To Sustainability

Designed in Bondi Beach, Australia



Sourced this super soft lambskin leather from a tannery based in Pakistan. The hide is a by-product and was sourced from New Zealand. This irregular surface texture is unique to the lambskins in the region. West 14th labels are developed using Oeko-Tex Standard 100% organic certified cotton.  



Processed using an eco-friendly, plant-base and chemical-free tanning process called vegetable tanning to develop this leather and colour that is unique to West 14th.



Recycled material is used in the trimming details for this style. Perma Core ECO 100 by A&E is an ethically manufactured, industrial sewing thread, featuring fully recycled polyester.



Manufactured this heirloom piece in Guangdong Province, China with quality control conducted in Hong Kong by our long term boutique manufacturing partners.



Shipped in compostable satchels to our warehouse partners in Ingleburn, NSW Australia and then directly to our women around the globe.  Safely packed in West 14th reusable duster bag made in Australia by Sisterworks social enterprise.



Worn & Loved by our beloved customers for a lifetime… or until your girlfriend or daughter steels it!
