    you can probably do well with this if you can find a quality designer who will provide patterns that are either on-trend or true classics.

    Will you set up a factory? Start with manufacture in your garage? Do you have reliable suppliers of leather? The more up market your jackets are, the more care you need to take that the leather is of a consistent, agreed quality.

    Distribution will be important. Do your research - will people buy online? Do retailers require particular stock levels and size ranges? Will you have any issues filling large orders? What do you need to do to be able to respond quickly? Where will you sell stock that is soiled, no longer on-trend?

    Much of this will come down to your start up capital.

    LOL

    I heard Hollywood actors make a lot of money. Does anyone have any knowledge about immediately getting in to a Hollywood film as a major actor making millions?

    Seriously now... there is a lot of money in a successful leather business if you know what you are doing. You have no idea what you are doing. You simply heard there's opportunity in a leather making business and now you want to learn how to manufacture and start a leather business? Just piss off.... This is just silly.

    You have no interest in leather. You have no skill in leather. You only heard there's money to be made. There's also money to be made in medical, law, marketing, etc. But what is YOUR background? What are YOUR interests?

    ps. It's HIGHLY HIGHLY unlikely that you will now spend the next couple of years to develop your leather making skill set to go start a successful profitable business based off simply hearing about the leather niche being profitable. Just a waste of time to ask.

    I can understand your emotions :D but don't get stressed as your advise will be worthy only if you share any informative comment :p
    I don't know where you saw that i don't have leather manufacturing knowledge, but it's better to read the replies before participating in the discussion :cool:

    That's what i am trying to do

    I agree with your point, buyers always attract on current trends, and therefore I also talked with the manufacturer so that I could protect myself from storing a large amount of goods.
    Regarding the size i did my research, and usually customers select the size patterns, but I'm also going to share an option for customize size.

    @statusredox said something that you should focus.
    I have both options, manufacturing or engaging a manufacturer whatever is feasible in beginning.

    It's up to you, how you make it profitable
    There isn't any term of profitable business, but it's the strategy that makes any business profitable

    Hello. I recommend finding a good supplier of leather, organizing a room for cutting raw materials, deciding what you would like to make from leather, thinking out the sales market, Paring Machine Schmedt and quality tools. After all, your reputation depends on it. Good luck.

    For retail one best way to sell your products is Amazon,Ebay,Etsy or any other ecommerce site. But the key to making leather products have a good trail sale is by creating a strong brand on social media. Use Instagram,Facebook,Tumblr and Pinterest to get your brand identified by multiple users.

    Well, I believe if you're determined to make it profitable, you will.
    It's all about your desire, your faith and organize planing, this is what makes the difference really.

    Presumably you're not manufacturing which is what the OP was asking about.
