Here are The Few Tips to Know Before Choosing a Leather Jacket

  1. Be prepared to invest a minimum of $250. A good quality leather jacket could cost around $500 or more. However, you might get a cheaper price during sales.
  2. Go for traditional design, which includes bomber, biker, or sports jacket which are a zipped coat as well. Choose a medium length jacket, which is above your tight. But this has no limitation, if you prefer waist or hip-length coats, you can always go for it as both of these jackets are versatile.
  3. For the jacket’s color, pick the most safer and trending color which is black. Likewise, you can consider shades of brown if you are not a fan of black color.
  4. Next, understand the different textures from buttery soft, thin leather to thicker and more resilient jackets. Fabric is also another important factor to consider, whether to choose from animal skins or go for synthetic leather which is cheaper in cost.
  5. Make sure the leather jacket you receive is flawless. Ensure the joints of each part are strong, the collar and pockets lie flat and the bottom hem is straight. Examine the lining for strong seams, specifically in the pockets where you can get a great deal of wear and tear.

Tips on How to Take Care of Your Leather Jacket

  • Keep your leather jacket either flat or on a wide, tough, padded hanger to prevent stretch marks. Make certain to never use a plastic cover.
  • Take care of the spots constantly. When in doubt take the jacket to the laundry shop.
  • Keep your leather away from water as it will diminish the natural oils on the surface. If the jacket gets wet, allow them to dry naturally and away from extreme heat.
  • If the leather appears to be losing its luster, it can be oiled with mink oil to enhance its appearance.
  • Frequent oiling of leather will keep your leathers supple and improve their life expectancy drastically.
