Maintaining Your Vintage Leather Jacket

Post by CRAZYBUBBA » Mon Feb 08, 2010 1:27 pm

Do you guys have any leather products or conditioners that you use so that the leather stays vital without looking oily or wet?

I bought a "water proofing" leather spray about five years ago and the leather still looks wet because of it :( (of course, I didn't really take care of my stuff back them).

Have you tried good old Kiwi Saddle Soap? Softens, cleans, and brightens even the most beat up filthy salty & stiff leather.

Most waterproofing materials (mink oil, silicone) will change the color of the garment, leather or otherwise

Pecards is the best by far.It does change the colour of the leather initialy,but it soon reverts back after wearing.Nothing else comes close.
