Leather ages well and I love the worn-in look of my leather jacket . But to preserve the leather, I try to avoid wearing my jacket on rainy days, and if I do get water stains on it, I let it dry naturally. Once dried, I used a leather conditioner to prevent the leather from drying and cracking. Coach makes a great moisturizer
that can be used for everything from leather clothing to bags to shoes.
For my jumpsuit, I make sure to wash it in only the most gentle detergent to preserve the color, softness, and fit. I used Woolite
Gentle Cycle detergent, which prevents color from fading and keeps my jumpsuit looking like new. Additionally, I always let the piece air-dry rather than machine dry.
Lastly, for my favorite red loafers, I use Apple leather cleaner
to remove spots and stains, and then use the Coach conditioner again to moisturize the leather and maintain the luster and shine.
