If it can create an effect similar to the feminine, it is also perfect to create a look very glamorous and terribly baby doll, if you wear his perfecto with a skirt with ruffles, fine tights and pretty ballerinas.
Yes but now, how to make sure that his beautiful leather bomber jacket, which we often paid quite expensive, keeps all its brilliance, even if we like to put it every day? How to maintain a leather jacket? Here are all our tips for wearing your leather jacket for years.
Have the right actions to clean your leather jacket
Of course, leather cannot wash as one would with a textile. Passing a leather jacket to the machine or trying to wash it by hand comes back, purely and simply, to put it in the trash. It is therefore not with water that one has to wash one’s leather bomber jacket men but with a specialist stain remover or with other products that one has often already at home. Indeed, one of the most effective liquids is none other than cleansing milk or moisturizing baby milk.
Use the right products to maintain your leather jacket
The first step when buying a bomber jacket leather is to waterproof it, as you do for new shoes. Indeed, the leather is naturally waterproof, but wearing it during a heavy downpour may permanently stain it. If you wear your biker jacket and it starts to rain, it is very important, once you get home, to lay it flat and gently wipe the wet areas with a cloth.
When the mens leather bomber jacket is very old or a bit fragile, it is better to leave the cleansing milk aside and clean the jacket with a cotton pad soaked in glycerine, a substance found in pharmacies. In other cases, it is often difficult to wash a leather that has become very dirty, over-worn and begins to feel sweat. To overcome this problem, we add to the cleansing milk a few drops of white vinegar, very convenient to counter the bad smells.
We can also use a brown leather bomber jacket on which we deposited a little clay stone. Another problem that may arise is the presence of dye spots, for example if a backpack has rubbed off on the leather jacket. To try to get rid of it, you have to apply cleansing milk, clay stone and a drop on cotton no more.
