We’re pretty into leather jackets right now.

  1. They  can be thrown over anything
  2. They instantly make your t-shirt and jeans outfit look bad-ass.
  3. A great one lasts forever.


The downside? Leather jackets cost almost a month’s rent. BUT buying the right leather can last for over 10 years. Remember that a more classic moto style leather jacket will be in style longer than a trendy bomber style leather jacket. Consider it a treat yo self-moment. We also find calculating your cost per wear helps. So obviously this article from the onion had to be shared. We’re team Leather Jackets over Children.

Consider it a treat yo self-moment! We also find calculating your cost per wear helps. Shop around, do your research, calculate your CPW, and when you do decide to buy consider it a “treat yo self” moment.

This article from The Onion had to be shared…. we’re team Leather Jackets over Children.

SEATTLE—A study released Thursday by the Pacific Parenting Institute found that owning a seriously cool leather jacket is significantly more fulfilling than raising a child to adulthood. “Our research suggests that the feeling of purchasing a really amazing leather jacket and then proudly watching over time as it gradually becomes broken in and forms perfectly to your body is, by a very wide margin, more rewarding than conceiving a child and then raising it from birth to 18 years of age,” said lead researcher Dr. Marcus Aiello, adding that it was on average 63 percent more gratifying to regularly condition a leather jacket that had awesome vertical zippers on the sleeves than it was to read nightly bedtime stories to a son or daughter.

Anderson’s was founded in the mid 1960’s by Mr. Carlo Valenti who got all his training in the world o belt making for a very famous leather factory in Parma. After gaining enough knowledge, he decided to go into business for himself and opened up Anderson’s. Wondering where he came up with that name?! Well, being an Anglophile, Mr. Valenti was very fond of hats and wore suits by English tailor ‘Anderson and Sheppard’… that’s how the name ‘Anderson’s’ came to life.

Anderson’s is now one of the leading accessories companies in Italy and maybe the oldest men’s belt manufactorer in Europe. With the wolrd as their oyster they have truly made the name Anderson’s synonymous with the highest quality of design and manufacturing, combining modern techniques with the experience and tradition of the “Parma leather artisans”.

Today, this family run business is helmed by son Riccardo and daughter Elisabetta and continues to strive to produce the highest quality belts you will ever own.

Anderson’s is a real family business, proud to still be owned and run by the original  family and is still – after more than 45 years – based in Parma, Italy, where 100% of belts are manufactured by 50 employees. Production takes place exclusively at the laboratories in Parma (historically well known for the manufacturing of shoes and leather goods), where each individual operation is supervised by expert craftsmen. Each garment is made with knowledge and quality that has been passed on from generation to generation. The town Parma has been the birthplace of high quality Italian belts and Anderson’s pieces are one of its outstanding products. Our heritage is evident in placing values on material, sewing, processing and workmanship passed on over generations within our family. That’s why all our products are entirely handmade in Italy using premium quality leathers and fabrics for belts manufactured with highest standards and craftsmanship.
