With great pleasure we introduce Simmons Bilt, a brand hailing from Scotland. In Scotland, there are rich traditions of craft, manufacture and heritage. Most, if not all, heavy industry has vanished but skilled artisans and craftspeople keep the traditions alive, honing their skills in crafts that could so easily have fallen to the wayside. These crafts require talent acquired through patience and time. All of which seem to be counter to the modern view of how things should be done. Simmons Bilt is this concept brought to fruition.

Within Simmons Bilt, the knowledge and enthusiasm for the leather, for the jackets and for the history shines through in their products. For a relatively young company they have a solid reputation for being the best at what they do. The range of styles, fits and leather show a great understanding of the history of leather jackets. Combine this with the detailing and customization, Simmons Bilt shows sympathy to the needs of their customer in a contemporary context. Collaborations with the likes of Nigel Cabourn, Edwin Jeans, Barbour International and Burg & Schild further cement their standing in the field.
