Vintage leather jacket
When we offer a leather jacket, there is no want off the hook us at the end of a season. Of course, there are leather and leather: the Lamb-the Rolls Royce-is soft, very soft, everything beautiful but generally more fragile than the sheep, the cow or goat.
Also essential: the leather work. “Full flower” (the best) and the”flower” won the prize of beauty by leaving the “crust” (strong but less chic, sometimes very cheap) on the side of the road. Not to mention the treatment. But apart from the noble words “dipped leather”, it tells us little about how our jacket has been boosted. For example with opaque coloration for camouflage imperfections.
As we have all our BTS “hides and skins” (does anyone?), I advise you to trust your instincts. That of exactly what you told my grandmother, born in a tannery, which sniffed all the skins to “feel” the quality.
Test your senses: sight, touch, smell should help you make the right choice.
Is the leather shiny or strangely too satin? Is the grain regular? Not at all?
Finishing (sewing, lining…) are they up to?
If the jacket is already skated, is the patina homogeneous or as vulgar as an artificially faded jeans?
Do you want to pet him both its sweetness you called or so his roughness you stop she net?
Does he smell good or do you feel that a biquette has entered the room?…
It’s called feeling and so it is a very personal story: some will love retro army jackets when others prefer irregularities (color variations, grain…) promising an authentic patina.
Because that’s also the point of a beautiful leather jacket: watch it grow old in beauty.
He needs you to through the years.
To avoid deformation, do not stuff the pockets, do not let it hang out on a couch, do not hang on a peg but to a hanger in the right size that takes good shoulders and close it.
If he took the rain, get him away from the radiator (don’t worry, he won’t catching cold) and let it dry on its hanger (or the back of a Chair) at room temperature.
Clean regularly with a milk for leather (especially at the neck) or a milk make up Remover on a cotton.
Use a cloth moistened for small dirt.
You can also clean the lining (well Yes, you sweat) with a (clean) sponge saturated with laundry (not too much or you will spend hours rinse).
If you do not wear your jacket for several months, slide it in a cotton cover (not plastic, unhappy, there need to breathe).
You discover white traces when you get out? It’s what the pros call “regrowth”. Nothing dramatic, a wet cloth, it should leave (unless your jacket has been stored in a damp place).
And you, how is your favorite jacket?
