WEST COAST LEATHER. “Because Giving is Always in Fashion” …… Design Director Skip Pas. Fashion Director and Company Founder Skip Pas has been in the leather business since 1986. Formerly General Manager and Assistant Designer while at North Beach Leather, Skip was instrumental in helping North Beach grow from a San Francisco based company to a global business and his expertise and knowledge in the leather industry is unequaled. Skip started West Coast Leather in 2003 after North Beach Leather closed down and has continued to grow the leather fashion business in his own unique way. Designing Leather clothing today is all about a special custom fit, tailored to the client’s needs. With the addition of jewelry, exotic skins, and technology breakthroughs in leather design, Skip and his design team continue to add new inventive collections every season. Since 2003, Skip and West Coast Leather have participated in and supported many charities from the San Francisco Breast Cancer Emergency Fund to the Fireman’s Benefit to help a local injured fireman, to the Wounded Warrior Project and Cher’s Operation Helmet. Skip and West Coast Leather continue to believe that “Giving is Always in Fashion.”
