Have lurked here for some time.  First post.

Searched the forum for this topic and couldn't find anything 100% relevant, but i'm a noob, so please point me to any extant threads.  thanks.

I have somewhere between ten and fifteen high-quality leather jackets.  About half are lambskin; the others are a mélange of bovine, sheepskin, equine, kidskin, goatskin, you name it.

 

My question is, what's the best way to store them?

Right now I have them hanging on wide hangers, each one in a(n unzipped) fabric garment bag.  For the softer, lambskin ones, I have a hand towel wrapped around each arm of the hanger so that there's less chance of puckering in the shoulders.

 

The reason I ask is, I've noticed a very slight wrinkling in the shoulder area of one of the lambskin jackets.  It's nothing that's yet noticeable when I'm wearing the jacket, but I noticed the difference when I put it over a chair at a restaurant.

That's despite the padded hanger + towels, so I'm worried that hanging the jackets is going to cause more damage than I'd anticipated in the long term.

 

Any advice?

I'm most concerned with the lambskins; nothing's going to happen to the cow and horsehide ones.

 

Fwiw, I live in northern CA, where it's never too hot or too cold for leather, so this isn't for long-term storage; I'd like the jackets to be reasonably accessible.

 

Thanks.

Thanks for the polling input.  For the people who chose "Other", I'd appreciate hearing exactly which "other" you had in mind.

I've commissioned a number of mannequins made to my exact measurements and I store my jackets on them when I'm not wearing it.
