About Us

Since 2003 Skip Pas, Design Director of West Coast Leather has been creating beautiful new leather collections. Working with television, movies and magazine features, Skip is the designer to the stars for leather fashion today.   His newly released 2012 Fall Collection is all about asymmetrical design and a return to sexy fitted sophisticated leather dresses and matching short jackets in Ferrari colors for ladies and exotic raw edge sport jackets and custom designed blazers for men. Formerly General Manager and Assistant to the Designer Michael Hoban of North Beach Leather, Skip started West Coast Leather within 2 weeks of North Beach Leather closing its doors in 2003.

West Coast Leather creates new collections each season and continues to push the envelope on leather design.   From their sexy corsetry line to military styles and riding jackets, raw edge washed leather with exotic inlays, eco-friendly leathers, as well as the inclusion of amazing silver hardware, there is no limit to where West Coast Leather can take leather design.   Skip continues to add new designers that complement their amazing leather designs, like luxurious Rizal shearlings from Paris and the sexy Cocoa Jeans line from Colombia.   Of all their products though, their clientele continues to be the most important product of all – West Coast Leather strives to help each customer create a unique leather outfit or wardrobe through outstanding custom fit, the ability to customize and add unique designs, and of course customer service.

Skip has always maintained that no matter what incredible leather colors they create in every season, Black Leather is Always in Fashion.   West Coast Leather also believes that Giving is Always in Fashion; each year they work with and support many different organizations and fundraisers like the Stepping Out for Life Breast Cancer organization, San Francisco’s local firefighters and the Friends of Dorothy, Orange County HIV Aids support organization.
