Q. I’d like to get a leather jacket made with some writing on the back, something completely unique. Who should I contact about this? How much is it going to cost roughly? Is there anything I should make sure I ask for, like armour built into it?

A. Buy British! Hideout ( will make you a jacket for £510 (+20% for made-to-measure). Prices for lettering and logos will vary according to size and design, but you’re looking at around £30 extra if your name’s Alan and you want it quite large. The jacket will come with armour that exceeds CE requirements and is available in a staggering 21 different colours.
