How to choose a leather jacket
It will be about genuine leather jackets. When choosing this type of clothing, the calculation is not made for one or two seasons, but mainly for several years, so you always want to buy a really high-quality product. To distinguish a fake from the original and to approach the choice wisely, we recommend that you adhere to several rules.
- The first thing to think about is the place of purchase. Factories producing natural leather goods sell their products mainly through brand salons or well-known chain stores. It is almost impossible to buy a fake in such places – large sellers do not risk their reputation and sell only certified products, but you will have to pay a lot for them. It is much cheaper to buy a leather jacket from retailers and markets. Here the buyer has to rely only on himself.
- The second factor of choice is the origin of the material. Buffalo leather is characterized by increased wear resistance, it is durable and soft, not afraid of moisture, dense in structure, retains presentability for at least 5 years. A pigskin jacket will cost less, but this wears out quickly and usually lasts no more than 3-5 years with proper care and neat wear. Sheep leather is used for premium quality products.
Large store sellers provide a guarantee for leather goods for at least 1 year This is one of the fundamental factors in choosing a product made from natural materials.
Now about how to independently determine natural skin:
- Feel the material. Real skin heats up quickly and retains heat for a while. Leatherette will cool for a long time at hand – it has a high thermal conductivity, so products made from it are usually additionally insulated.
- Find the hem – a genuine leather jacket usually has a place where a cut of the material can be seen – it is not tucked, because it does not wrinkle, does not exfoliate and does not lose integrity.
- Drop water on the material – after a few minutes, the natural leather will slightly change color, but then it will return to the original one. Leatherette does not absorb moisture at all.
- The previous drop test will also help determine how well the jacket is protected from getting wet in the rain. To do this, wet a light-colored cloth, run it over the jacket. The color of the fabric should not change – this indicates a high-quality impregnation.
- Important! No scratches will remain on real skin.
- Sellers selling jackets obviously made of fake leather will not allow the buyer to conduct any of the tests, except for the tactile one.
What else you need to pay attention to:
- Sewing quality: evenness of seams, quality of thread and design of hem;
- Serviceability of lightning;
- If there are buttons, check the loops – they should be well overcast, the hooks should also be firmly sewn;
- Textile lining is suitable for the warm season, fur (natural or artificial) – for the cool one. It is better if it is sewn on, and not fixed with a zipper, which can break at a crucial moment;
- The size of the garment should be accurate, but not smaller, despite the stretch ability of natural leather.
- Model and style are a matter of taste. For warm weather, shortened models are often chosen, for cold weather – below the hip line. Sleeve length from ½ to full, detachable collar, fitted or straight silhouette, classic zipper or leather jacket, colors – jackets can really be chosen for any occasion and style.
Important: in order for a genuine leather jacket to serve for a long time, you need to take care of it – periodically remove stains, clean and saturate with water-repellent compounds.
