Well Halloween is over and that means soon the holiday season buying will start! Yes I know most don’t want to think about it but it seems like each year people start their Christmas shopping earlier.

With times tough for most this year it makes more sense to buy gifts that are practical. A warm leather jacket or coat is a great gift while being something they can use instead of sticking it on a shelf!

I have a mix of both leather motorcycle jackets as well as leather fashion jackets and coats. I will be adding new ones very soon for the holidays, yes I know I’ve said that before!

Leather coats, classic apparel for warm winter use

Womens leather coat

It’s almost time once again to be taking your winter wardrobe out of storage and dusting off your sweaters, jackets, and coats. This will provide you with a great opportunity to update and expand your outerwear. If you don’t already own a couple of leather coats, consider buying one.

Leather coats have been fashionable for years, but this winter they’ll be hotter than ever! Genuine leather just makes good sense. For one thing, it’s a natural material that’s extremely durable.

When properly cared for, leather coats will last for decades. Unlike outerwear made of fabric, leather coats will maintain their shape winter after winter, so they’ll keep their inherent good looks.

Today I’d like to showcase a great long leather coat I have for women. Long leather coats for women are popular, and this one is very sharp looking. The leather is a very soft and smooth, yet sturdy and stands up to wear.

This long leather coat is full length, going down just past the knees. So it keeps you nice and warm as the leather acts like a great windbreaker. It keeps your clothes dry and clean from the outside weather too.

Long leather coats for women don’t often have zip out liners, but this one does! In fact the warm thinsulate liner runs all the way up the sleeves to keep you nice and toasty on cold days.

Buying fall and winter leather coats & jackets for women

fall and winter leather coats and jackets for womenfall and winter leather coats and jackets for women

Now that fall is here and the weather is cooler, you might be thinking about buying your wife or girlfriend a nice leather coat or jacket. Or your a woman and wants to get one for herself. But you might be confused with all the different styles and colors there are out there. So here’s a few tips for you to get a quality women’s leather jacket or coat.

Many think that a leather jacket will not keep you very warm. That’s because of so many fake leather and junk leather coats out there today. I had a girl here in Florida that got a great looking leather jacket from a well known brand. But even here in Florida in the winter she would freeze with that on! A quality, real leather coat or jacket with a liner is very, very warm.

So first make sure it’s REAL leather. Most coats and jackets today are fake leather, leather-like, synthetic leather (which is fake leather) and so on. A real leather jacket will have a tag on it stating it’s made from real leather. A QUALITY leather jacket or coat will say what kind of leather it is, and maybe even the thickness.

Obama should have worn a leather coat

mens leather jacket

I just wanted to make a quick post today. Talking about the new president is a bit off topic, but hey, it’s a big deal so why not. Besides, it’s my site! The weather at the inaugural was a bit cold, so he had on a long coat of some type. It looked good, but I think a long leather coat or trench coat would have looked cool with him wearing it!

It would have really cut that wind that was blowing too. So Obama is our 44th president now, and the first ever black president. Actually he has a bit of a few races in him, biracial. Love him or hate him, he’s it for another 4 years. I myself like how he keeps a calm, steady demeanor about him. He does not seem to get rattled up too easy. [Read more…]

Winter storage of your leather motorcycle jacket

winter care of leather jackets and coats

I know I made a post a while ago about caring for your leather jacket in the winter. Most people who have leather motorcycle jackets store them all winter long. I’ll just give a brief recap of how to best store your leather motorcycle jacket today, because I can’t think of anything else to say today!

Many times in the fall when you get ready to put your leather motorcycle jacket away you are too busy to really do a good job of it. You hang it up thinking “next week I’ll take it back out, clean it and really store it good”. But now it’s January and you just remembered that steam that goes into your closet from the radiator!

The best thing you can do right now is take it out and give it a good look over. Did you clean it good so dirt and crap is not stuck in the zippers, hardware and pockets? Now that you have more time in the long winter days you should get your leather motorcycle jacket out and clean it good. Wipe it down, brush it off and go over the buttons and snaps with a toothbrush to get out dirt. [Read more…]

What to do when you get a leather jacket or coat for a gift

How to care for your new leather jacket gift

I hope everyone had a great Christmas! I roasted a full chicken and really pigged out, lol. Many people will get a leather jacket or coat for Christmas. Many boyfriends and husbands will get their girlfriends or wife a nice winter leather coat or jacket. Many times this is the first leather coat they ever had. So, they are not sure what to do with it.

Should they clean it? Does it need waterproofing stuff on it? Does it need sealer? Well let me tell you the basics of what to do if you get a new leather coat for Christmas, or anytime as a gift. First, you want to inspect it and be sure nothing is wrong with it so you can return it if you have to. Take a look all over the outside of the leather coat.

See if there are any rips, holes, burns, flaking or even discoloring on the leather. Next inspect all the outside stitching on the leather jacket. Is there any threads cut, pulled out, nicked or worn? Now inspect any zippers on all the pockets, vents and so on. Zip them open and closed several times. New zippers may be a little stiff.

Should you buy a leather jacket as a gift?

leather jackets as a gift

With the holidays here, many people are thinking about buying their husband, wive, son or friend a leather jacket. The question is, is buying them a leather jacket a good idea? Why not you may ask. Well in a lot of cases it is a good idea and I’m sure they will be very happy with it. However for a lot of people, a leather jacket is a personal thing.

What I mean is, for the real biker who is looking to get a new leather motorcycle jacket, he has an idea of what he wants. Maybe he wants air vents on the back, or maybe on the sides. Perhaps he wants to get laces on the side, or he wants to get one this time with a zip out liner. There are lots of things a person may want in a leather jacket you don’t know about. [Read more…]

What is faux fur leather coats and jackets made of?

what is faux fur leather jackets and coats made of?

With the Holidays here, many guys think about getting their wives or girlfriends a fur, or faux fur leather jacket or coat. But just what is faux fur? What is faux fur made out of? Is faux fur cheap or quality? Well, years ago leather fur coats were popular and was seen as something up there with getting a diamond necklace.

A mink fur coat was a status symbol. Then organizations against the cruelty to animals made everyone more aware of the suffering and inhuman treatment that fur animals go through. So now many look down on real fur coats and jackets, and instead opt for faux fur leather jackets and coats. But many still don’t know just what a fuax fur is.

Faux is pronounced “foe” and is French for “not real”. Years ago people who wanted a fur coat but could not afford one got a fake fur leather coat instead. So they were looked on as cheap, and most were. But today a faux fur leather coat is the norm and is very fashionable and most are quality made. Many leather coats have an inside liner of faux fur.

Ladies warm leather jackets for cold weather

warm ladies leather jacketsladies leather jacket

Sorry I have not been keeping up on the post, been real busy! I have not added much to my store section, but I’m working on it. One of the things I’m going to add is Ladies warm fashion leather jackets like in the picture above. Some people are confused as to if leather jackets are really warm. Leather makes a great windbreaker, which accounts for a lot of cold.

So once you combine a good liner with a good leather jacket you end up with a very warm jacket. If it’s a sheepskin shearling leather jacket it’s one of the warmest jackets you can own. But you don’t even need a liner that thick. A thinsulate zip out liner like the ones in the leather jackets in my store keep you nice and warm in cold weather.

Now, I don’t mean minus 10 degrees temperatures! For that then your best bet is a down parka or shearling coat. But for most normal cold weather of 10 degrees above and higher a leather jacket or coat with a thinsulate liner will be plenty warm. With a zip out liner that same leather jacket will be able to be worn in warmer weather too.

I will be carrying about 8 or so ladies warm fashion leather jackets. Some have faux fur liners and collars. Some have just the thinsulate liner. All are very warm and toasty, two even have hoods that are hidden when not in use. So you get a warm jacket with good leather fashion looks. Look for them in the store in about a week!
