Hello, snaps

working with snaps on new jacket design

I like the clean look of metal snaps, and their utilitarian aesthetic. But they’re not something I’ve yet used in my projects. Well, maybe one or two times on personal projects, with poor tools and unsatisfactory results.

For a new jacket design I’m working on, I’d like to use a few snaps in place of buttons. A lot of people are interested in the Tailored Dog Jacket, but the price doesn’t fit their budget. So my goal is to create a design that takes less time to make (for more on this, see what goes into making the Tailored Jacket), allowing me to offer it at a lower price. I think it’ll be a more casual take on the Tailored Jacket — still using reclaimed wool, but less formal in approach.
