Building upon 8 years of constructing bespoke saddlery hand sewn cases and durable leather goods for major professional photographers/ photojournalists, designers, engineers, creative directors and film industry professionals via our former sister label Fast+Prime, we feel honoured that our work is chosen for daily use by such skilled creative professionals all over the world.

Expanding our outlook and product offerings organically from demand with our Fast+Prime clients, we developed a new home “Channel Modern” in 2015 which has been focused on bringing together absolutely all of our finest work and construction techniques into one place.


Neal Simons: 

A decade in the design industry for labels such as Alexander McQueen, Giorgio Armani and Loro Piana, to finally having my own coat & jacket label sold in Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge London and Beams International Gallery Tokyo.

After achieving much of what I was after in the traditional “seasonal” (treadmill) design business model, I decided it was time to look at my construction and design skills in longer lasting ways. In a complete about face, I spent the next 5 years as a bespoke classic car restorer working on classic Jaguar, Mercedes, Rolls Royce and Aston Martin cars creating bespoke interiors- where lasting quality construction is everything.

Now, 9 years via Fast+Prime and Channel Modern bringing everything together and working at the highest level of hand sewn production with the finest lasting quality materials possible in traditional saddlery. Items built to last a lifetime.
