WILL Leather Goods

William Adler — aka the “Will” in WILL Leather Goods — didn’t start off designing accessories. He was working as a successful actor in L.A. until the SAG strike in 1981 forced him into another line of work. Taking a cue from his brother, who worked in the fashion industry, Adler started a small belt stand on the Venice Beach boardwalk. Things quickly took off, and by the ‘90s he’d grown the cottage business into a full-fledged enterprise with a proper factory, sold it to a rival firm, and started another leather goods company, this time in Eugene. Another decade, another company made successful and sold off, and he was free to create something new: WILL Leather Goods. Blending rugged designs with an actor’s eye for storytelling, the collection draws inspiration from the Old West but updates things with new production techniques and clean, functional lines. Call it trail gear for the modern cowboy.
