Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 746post #11177 of 164195/31/14 at 1:57pmpost #11178 of 164196/2/14 at 4:36pmpost #11179 of 164196/2/14 at 4:51pmpost #11180 of 164196/3/14 at 12:04am
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.post #11181 of 164196/3/14 at 12:05amQuote:Originally Posted by Somatic
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.
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 cashpost #11182 of 164196/3/14 at 12:05ampost #11183 of 164196/3/14 at 12:32amQuote:
lol come on sinnedk. It's not okay to get any leather wet. Naked cowhide can shrink like crazy for example.post #11184 of 164196/3/14 at 12:54ampost #11185 of 164196/3/14 at 2:13ampost #11186 of 164196/3/14 at 2:34ampost #11187 of 164196/3/14 at 5:48amQuote:Yea you are ok to get any leather wet.

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.post #11188 of 164196/3/14 at 6:54ampost #11189 of 164196/3/14 at 6:58amBe careful conditioning soft lamb, can make it a bit TOO soft. I use a tiny bit of Saphir delicate on my lamb Rick if it starts feeling dry or I get caught in the rain, just once or twice a year. It helps around the cuffs and zippers where there's a lot of abrasion. Kept it going for five years so far and looking great
Always test on a small, non visible part first. I had the sleeves cut down on my Rick so I've been experimenting on the leather scraps - pretty damn hard to damage the jacketpost #11190 of 164196/3/14 at 7:06am
