THE REAL McCOY'S
HANDCRAFTED HORSEHIDE HIPPO
Inspired by the animal ottomans made by Omersa & Co. during the 1950s, The Real McCoy's has put the leftover leather collected during the manufacture of their famed horsehide jackets to use with their own collection of small handcrafted animals. This stuffed hippo makes for a unique gift or home accessory and will look great on a shelf or positioned atop a stack of books.

The Real McCoy’s was created by Mr. Hitoshi Tsujimoto, an esteemed vintage collector and dealer, as a way to recreate the classic pieces from his archive of American fashion from the 40s & 50s. Inspiration alone was not enough to produce the ultimate reproduction, it required the sensitive minds of detail-orientated craftsmen in Japan. Additionally, The Real McCoy's reproduce materials and parts using the same methods and machinery from the past. While they create the ultimate reproduction, they seek to make it even better than the original. The Real McCoy's brand is split into distinct sub brands, to give each a clear identity. The Real McCoy's refers to the Military reproductions from the US Navy, Army and Airforce. Joe McCoy includes American sportswear, denim and workwear.
