It’s been a long time since I made a new post in here. But I wanted to let you all know about a great new leather jacket I just got in. I’ve started designing and buying my own leather apparel directly from quality leather manufactures.

So I now have my own brand, Leather Supreme. 🙂 This is the first one I have in stock, and it’s a beauty. It’s a mens retro brown buffalo hide cafe’ style motorcycle jacket. It’s modeled after the one I had in here before with a few improvements.

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!

How a Women’s Leather jacket is different than men’s

Women's leather jacket

I’ve had a few women who liked a men’s leather jacket and wanted to know if they could get it in a women’s Leather jacket style. When I said I did not they asked if the men’s jacket would fit them.

The short answer is yes, but they would not fit good. When it comes to a women’s Leather jacket there are several different areas that are different than a mens. The two biggest differences are the arm length and torso.

You can have a man and woman stand side by side and be equal in height, but a jacket would not fit the same. Men have longer torso’s than a woman, as well as arms in general.

USA leather, finding leather jackets made in the USA

Many bikers want to get a leather jacket that is made in the USA. Bikers in general seem to be a more patriotic bunch that want to buy USA leather products whenever they can. However like most things made today, where leather jackets are made and came from can be confusing.

The truth is most leather jackets and leather apparel in general is made outside the USA. Most are high quality, in fact the biggest names in leather wear get their leather outside the USA and also get it made somewhere else.

However maybe you don’t care if it’s quality or not, you just want a good quality USA leather jacket from and made in the USA. If so there are two things to keep in mind, where the actual leather comes from, and where it’s made.

Leather jacket thickness and toughness

Leather jacket thickness

I recently had an email from someone who wanted to know if a leather jacket I had was really tough, not a soft leather jacket. He seemed to indicate that if a leather jacket was soft to the touch it was not a tough leather jacket. So I thought I’d clear up that question in a post today.

How tough, or long lasting a leather jacket is depends on several things, but softness is not one of them. Leather that is soft and flexible to the touch has just been treated very well to get that way. The real test of how rugged a leather jacket is depends on the type of hide, the layer of the hide used and how thick the hide is.

A top grain leather is the layer of hide at the top, where the hair use to be. That layer is the strongest part of the hide. Leather hides are always split into several layers. The layers below the top grain is the split grain leather, which is a bit weaker than the top layer.

Spring cleaning your leather jacket and motorcycle leathers

Leather jacket spring cleaning

Down here in Florida biker weather is year round. But for much of the USA people put their leather motorcycle jackets, saddle bags and biker leather away for the winter. With spring coming up it’s a good time to get out that leather and get it ready.

It also cheers you up as you can think of riding again! If you’ve kept your leather jacket and leather items in a cool, aired out place and you cleaned it before putting it away chances are you don’t have to do a thing to it.

But,,,, if you threw it in a pile last fall, left it dirty thinking you’ll get around to cleaning it, or it’s been hanging over a heater, chances are you need to do a few things to it if you want it to last.
