How to protect your premium leather jackets this season?

Premium Leather jackets have been popular for quite some time. Though they were "created" in the early twentieth century for practical uses and later refined for the armed services during ww2, they were popularized in the 1950s by none other than Hollywood stars seeking to replicate that military image. Since then, whether they're vintage bomber jackets or trendy sparkly coats, they've become a fashion classic, and it looks that quality leather jackets are here to stay.

To ensure that your leather jacket has staying power in your own closet, you must clean and care for it properly. The best method to keep your premium leather jackets supple, soft, smooth, and clean is to treat it like the expensive object that it is.

Step one

The first step is to read the manufacturer’s label: there may be some specific care instructions for the leather, such as how often to waterproof or condition the jacket.


Step two

Never fold your premium leather jackets for an extended amount of time, since this can cause wrinkles and cracks in the leather. Instead, put it on a broad, ideally cushioned hanger in a well-ventilated closet – never in direct sunlight, as this can discolor the jacket rapidly. This is especially true with suede. Do not, under any circumstances, hang your premium leather jackets on a wire hanger. You're inviting strange "bumps" in the shoulders. Don't stuff it into your closet with hundreds of other jackets after you've hung it. Give it some breathing room!

Even if you have been carefully caring for your premium leather jackets, you should have it professionally cleaned at least once a year, if not more, depending on how frequently you use it. A professional leather cleaner will know which cleaning method to employ (dry or wet cleaning, both of which may be used on leather jackets) based on the kind of leather, color, and style, as well as how to remove any stains (even dreaded ink stains).
