Sustainable

The fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world, and it’s time we rethink the materials, processes, and packaging used to create our beloved purchases. This is why we’ve done the upfront legwork and vetted our brands to ensure that our planet’s health is top of mind for them as well.

Woman-Owned

Women lift up half of the sky - by investing in women, you’re assisting in the process of creating more wealth for families and communities. The successes of women shape the way young girls see themselves as they develop into leaders, and it's essential for the world to provide leaders that mirror half of the population. 

Toxic Free

The secret behind the beauty, personal-care, and fashion industry is that they’re virtually unregulated, and therefore, allowed to use untested chemicals in their products. Exposure to these ingredients can be harmful overtime, and that’s why we’ve vetted each and every single one of these brands to ensure that they’re up to standards for those looking for a cleaner beauty routine or may be more sensitive to harsh ingredients.

Ethical

Here at ourCommonplace, all brands have our ethical stamp of approval, which encompasses decent working conditions, treatment of workers, and fair-wages. Through providing a platform for purchasing ethical goods and ensuring all brands uphold ethical standards, we hope to take us towards a more equitable and just world.

BIPOC-Owned

We believe in uplifting BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) communities by empowering their businesses. By choosing to allocate your purchasing power to BIPOC-owned businesses, you're not only strengthening local BIPOC communities — you're also contributing to shrinking the racial wealth gap, fostering job creation, and propelling diverse representation across consumer industries.

Cruelty Free

Animal tests are often painful and cause the suffering and deaths of millions of animals every year. Having this stamp of approval means that no animals were tested on, harmed or killed in the process of making the product. When you opt in for cruelty-free brands, you’re opting out of animal testing, and investing in clean products that are made for the benefit of your body, animals, and the environment.

A wardrobe must-own; The New Yorker Motor Jacket is our classic leather motor jacket with a design twist. Introducing a unique surface treatment we call 'bubble' leather. Sourced from New Zealand, this irregular surface texture is unique to the lambskins in the region. A new shade of stealth black was developed for you, since you've asked for it!

Story

Meet the New Yorker Motor Jacket.

Take me to the bar at hip (and oh-so-noisy) Locanda Verde on Greenwich St for the true NY experience: fashion girls, chic Europeans and uber-cool-professionals. I'm your best ally from office drinks to date night - but make sure you pre-book!


Sizing

  • True to size, regular fit 
  • Snug, slim fitted long sleeves
  • Fit is slightly generous due to the softness of the leather
  • Model wears size SMALL
  • Length is 54cm (small)
  • Martyna Budna height is 180cm ( 5'11 in), bust 82cm (32.5 in), waist 60cm (23.5 in) & hips 90cm (35.5 in)

Designer Fitting Notes: We designed the New Yorker to be that easy classic leather jacket. This motor jacket fits true to size. We suggest trying on your standard size to start. The sleeves have more room compared to our Greenwich Jacket and the body does too. If the jacket fits snug then it's the right size for you as leather will 'give' with time and mould to your shape to make it feel like your very own bespoke jacket. If the jacket is tight then it's too small and would suggest sizing up. Look at the shoulders seam to align with your shoulder as another sign of the right fit. Note leather will give about a half of size over the lifetime of wear.

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.

 

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.
