Tips on a leather jacket

This is what you should know beforehand about a jacket leather:
  • Know the type of leather. if you are unsure, ask before bringing it home. This will have a large impact on how you care for it.
  • Protect it from the elements. If you will be wearing your jacket outside in rain or snow, you will need to protect it from harm. A quality water protectant will help to condition as well as protect your leather from any moisture it may come into contact within the elements. If it’s a suede jacket, use a suede protection spray. Most solutions do not create a permanent chemical bond and therefore should be re-applied each season. Always clean evenly from seam to seam to prevent premature wear.
  • Blot stains. If you get a liquid stain, such as a drink on your jacket, simply blot it with a clean cloth; do not rub it into the jacket.
  • Let it Dry. If your leather gets wet, do not put it in the dryer, let it dry naturally. Once dry, condition it with an appropriate leather conditioner.
  • Hang it Right. When storing your leather, use a sturdy hanger that has a little padding to keep the shape of your jacket.
  • Don’t Use Plastic. Avoid the use of plastic bags when storing your leather as it could cause it to dry out and crack.
  • Empty Pockets. Avoid leaving heavy objects in your pockets, such as car key or a cell phone; it can stretch the leather.
  • Clean it with a proper leather cleaner and always remember to use a conditioner afterward to keep your jacket from drying and cracking.
