For these three keywords, in descending order from specific to general (usually riders is the best keyword):

八の字 (5-zip)
ライダース (riders)
レザー (leather)

You can also do a general search over the entire site for 5-zip and see if somebody put theirs in the wrong category

Perfect. Thanks.

Has anybody seen the fall Balmain jackets that the buyers actually bought yet?

 

Really did not care for their spring 2014 leather designs at all.

 

The runway shearling piece - http://www.balmain.com/en/shop/d-blouson-en-cuir-et-mouton-retourne-balmain/ looks very cool in a Jaime Lannister season 1 kind of way. 

 

Hoping they'll do a non-washed, non-distressed lambskin black plonge version of the biker one with no straps at the bottom or other unnecessary. . . accoutrerments

It looks like there is a cashmere-lined bauhaus for fw14, and the calf looks amazing. Here's hoping it rivals fw09 stuff.

Now if only he'd remove the buttons on the sleeves...

Weird question but: Is it okay to get washed leather wet?

post #11182 of 12266

Have some TOJ on order... will probably be at least another 40 weeks lol.

 

What are your thoughts on this YSL leather jacket and the Burberry Prosrum Double Rider? 

Which do you guys prefer? I'm leaning more towards to YSL, but I may just hold on to my cash for now.

Yea you are ok to get any leather wet. Think of it like this what do cows do in the rain? They don't melt. The only risk i think is the dye but other than that just wipe off and you'll be ok.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)








1. SLP - several people said its built well but its not great. IMO not worth the dough.
2. Burberry - classic leather looks ok, again not worth the cash

lol come on sinnedk. It's not okay to get any leather wet. Naked cowhide can shrink like crazy for example.

COWS DO NOT SHRINK

Suede can't get wet.


As for SLP vs Prorsum, I'd go with Prosusm just because they are going for 40%-50% off while those SLPs rarely goes on sale, if ever.

Cows aren't processed, dried, and dyed for that matter. Some lighter veggie dyed jackets tend to develop rain spots. There's no blanket statement but most non-suede leathers will be fine in a bit of rain, just condition them every once in awhile.

False.

 

Take it from someone who has a vested interest, other than just fashion, in keeping their leather jacket in good condition.

 

Cows are still alive. Living skin continuously produces oils and is self-conditioning. Once the leather is "dead," that does not happen. 

 

Water, among other things, dries leather out. 

 

Whenever I get caught in the rain and my jacket gets wet, it has to be reconditioned. Repeated whetting will dry leather prematurely and it will crack. It also loses abrasion and tear resistance if it is not reconditioned after becoming wet.

 

However, leather can get wet and not suffer any permanent damage if it is allowed to dry slowly and then oiled or conditioned. One of the worse things you can do to leather is to get it wet and then apply any kind of heat to dry it.
