Leather jackets are classy and stylish. They never go out of fashion, allowing you to continue using them for years to come. However, maintaining leather can be a bit daunting, but if done carefully, they look as good as new every time you wear them.
It is significant that you understand the type of leather used to fashion your jacket. Leather is usually divided into five grades of leather:
The leather then has different finishing, including embossed, Nappa, nubuck, suede, die-cut, embroidered, patent, printed, split, aniline, brush-coloured, degrained, metallic, pigmented, waxy, semi-aniline, etc.
The characteristics and quality of the material differ based on where the finishing of the hide is done. Other factors that may influence the quality of leather include the breed of animal, the food they have been fed, the climate they were raised in, the exercise they underwent, etc. Hides are natural, and the life of the animals is what impacts their quality.
Always remember to check the labels to determine the type of leather and the material of the lining from which it is made. Leather jackets are not meant to be washed using a washing machine or immersed in water. However, to prevent the build-up of grease or dirt, wiping it with a damp cloth and conditioning it helps in the build-up of mould. The jacket should be dried; naturally, it shouldn’t stay damp for long. Jackets with cotton or polyester lining can be maintained using the same method but if the lining is rayon or silk, then avoid doing anything at home. The job is meant for a specialist!
The tag of the jacket always carries the details of the material from which it is made along with the care instructions. If at all you are trying to clean the jacket at home, then don’t deviate from the instructions; else, the jacket will be spoiled.
Use a moisture protectant if you are going to wear the jacket out in snow or rain. You must spray it from seam to seam, so every part is protected. You must re-apply it as mentioned in the instructions.
If at all you spill something on your jacket, then you should refrain from rubbing it anxiously. Use a clean piece of cloth to dab and absorb it, and then allow it to dry naturally. You must never put it in a dryer.
Leather jackets should never be folded; instead, you must hang them using a sturdy hanger. Always take off the plastic when it comes back from the dry cleaners; else, it may dry it out and give a flaky look to your leather jacket. Remember to empty the pockets when not using the jacket to prevent the leather from stretching.
The best way to maintain your leather jacket is to get it dry-cleaned from professional dry cleaners. Selecting experienced, established and reliable dry-cleaners like DhobiLite ensures that your leather jacket stays new as always.
