The Slick Style of North Beach Leather
Posted on March 01 2011
Love, love, love old leather jackets.
We just added two North Beach Leather jackets to our Etsy shop:
North Beach Leather was established by Michael Hoban and Frank Morgan in the mid 1960s as a leather goods store in Los Angeles, California. In 1967 the shop was moved to San Francisco, to the North Beach section of town, hince the name. Hoban's leather designs proved to be popular with the San Francisco hippies, and a branch was soon opened in Berkeley. North Beach Leather did custom work for celebrities such as Elvis and Elton John. His designs are known for their boldness in both color and design.
