At present Sinclair produces and distributes in its Marostica factory under property trademarks the Sinclair womens’ and Marini mens’ collections.
The Sinclair leather garments guarantee the highest standards of quality and the end-result of an ever rarer manual ability in the handling, cutting and sewing of a raw material chosen according to the strictest criteria.
Manual skill means paying attention to every minute detail. In its Marostica factory Sinclair’s highly specialized personnel produces each selected, cut, sewn, finished and pressed on a individual basis. The beginning and ending of each seam is knotted by hand, stitch by stitch in order to guarantee a perfect welding, this finishing takes two more hours of work than that of a normal leather garments. Each button is sewn on by hand, each button hole is made by hand, then reinforced and finished with further hand weldings.
Highly specialized workers select only the best skins from leading tanneries those guaranteeing top quality and taste. The skins are then stored at constant temperature and humidity.
The selection is made from among a great quantity of skins, in order to attain utmost homogeneity in the finished goods.
After a further check by a different operator, the selected skins are prepared for the positioning of the patterns and are then cut one by one. The prime characteristic of Sinclair is: selection and cutting have to be made by different workers.
Cutting is executed by a specialist first by hand and then with a small knife, The cut material is checked again before going on the shearing operation.
Highly experienced workers shear the seams and inner borders in order to guarantee maximum evenness of the same.
The parts most subject to dimensional tensions, in relation use and stylistic function, are finished by a special ribbon by means of careful handwork.
Each particular piece is assembled in the most accurate and painstaking of ways. For instance, the pockets in soft skin (nappa) have a plushy lining instead of the usual sheep one. In case of reversible garments, the sewings on the outer side are executed with a leather carry, Reversible garments, have effectively a more difficult execution and constitute the “test” to establish the skill of the Master dealer.
he welding is a very refined and onerous operation but extremely useful in order to grant solidity and resistance to seams especially on the parts most subject to tension of use.
There are two supplementary hours of highly specialized hand-work, giving, however an exclusive and inimitable merit to each garment, successively also combed in each of its sewings. Both operations represent a real “touch” of a leather specialist.
Skilled pressers perform this final task exclusively by hand, using a silk lining to protect the leather.
Lastly, each piece is carefully tested before being sent to storage at room temperature and controlled humidity. The Sinclair model is now finished. During its entire existence it will maintain its original top quality in terms of raw materials and fine workmanship.
