Thrifted a leather jacket. Will Lexol suffice for conditioning?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Got bored today, and went to a few thrift stores, and came home with a motorcycle style leather jacket (was told it was about 20 years old). It is really nice, thick leather, but is in obvious need of some conditioning. It is quite stiff with some creases, but no cracks or tears, etc.

I was wondering if Lexol conditioner would work and be enough, or should I look into a cleaner and some other conditioner. Also, are there any common retail stores that carry it, or do I need to get it online?( is there a good place for that?) What size bottle will I need for the whole jacket?


FYI, I paid $5 for the coat, and it came with an ipod suffle in the pocket haha.

Thread is useless without pics.

Anyway, if it's 20 years old, decent chance you should use a cleaner first. Lexol makes one (I've never used it; it's probably good), or you can try saddle soap. Definitely condition after (Lexol's very good, but there are others). You can get both on amazon easily enough.

I like bic 4 for leather conditioner for bigger leather goods. I have used it on a few thrifted jackets. They also have a cleaner.
