Before the Arrow, there was the Raider. Vanson was on the third floor of an old brick warehouse in the South End of Boston.
The rent was cheap and the neighborhood a dumping ground for getaway cars and former gang members past their expiration dates. A customer showed up at the door, it was past closing time, snow was on the ground, the heat had been off for several hours and the place was rapidly reaching thermal equilibrium with the great outdoors. This man had with him his grandfather’s jacket from the '30s, rescued from the attic, and wanted to know if we could duplicate it. We did not know any better, so we said "Yes". After his custom jacket was finished the jacket hung by the office door, all the while attracting comments from other customers.
It was such an interesting period piece, a real slice of late '30s America, with its huge one-piece back that has to come right out of the heart of a skin, and slight fit-darts at the waistband, that we asked if he would mind us creating a pattern for production and selling the style...and now you can get this classic leather jacket, something of a Jurassic Park resurrection.
