One Of A Kind Clothing for one of a kind people


ForTheFly customs started with customising vintage leather biker jackets for myself and began evolving to what it is now in December 2018.

A metalhead for as long as I can remember, I am inspired by the music I love, tattoos, dark & occult art and the alternative sub-cultures of times past & present.

I aim to make unique, quality statement pieces that reflect the personality and individuality of the wearer, constantly honing my craftsmanship and skill to make something you will love forever at an affordable price.

Sustainability is a huge part of ForTheFly, and in my own little way i am raising a middle finger to the disposable, mass-produced fashion industry, one jacket at a time…

I use vintage perfecto pieces wherever possible, giving them love and care (and usually a whole lot of studs) to create head-turning custom clothing that tells a story and i would proudly wear myself.

I thrive on making your nightmares a reality, and love to collaborate with clients to bring their ideas to life as well as making my own designs, all work being done 666% by hand with a borderline obsessive attention to detail.

The ForTheFly range has expanded with my beautiful fiancée, Emmi, designing hand-made jewellery and harnesses, and we have ambitions to grow this truly independent venture further in the future, so keep your eyes peeled!

And remember…

Normal is an illusion. What is normal for the spider is chaos ForTheFly.
