House of Billiam prides themselves on making one article of clothing flawlessly well, and that is the varsity jacket. Coming a long ways since 2009; where the majority of manufacturing was being done in a single bedroom, the brand has now grown to offer more than 100,000 variations of its famed varsity jacket. Unlike jackets that are massed produced, this made-to-order jacket is custom tailored to ensure it fits each individual customer’s body. For the latest PROCESS video, we get an exclusive walkthrough of how one of these jackets are made; from receiving the order, applying the measurements to the raw material, down to the hammered Nappa leather sleeves. Helping along in the design process, we elected to pay homage to the classic flight jacket. In doing so, we applied iconic color sensibilities creating a luxurious outcome.

Crafted in an extremely limited run, in conjunction with this PROCESS: House of Billiam video, we are giving away a single varsity jacket to a single random winner. All you have to do is “Like” this post with the Facebook button below and leave us a comment about the jacket in the comment section below. On Monday, August 20, we’ll select the winner and update this feature with the winner’s name.
