Jacket needs TLC

Hello

 

Just joined the board, and would like to know if anyone has a recommendation on the best product for cleaning/restoring my old 125 would be? It's at least 18 now and is wonderfully well worn in (well, I think so anyhow) but could probably do with something to give it a good feed and maybe restore a little colour. Also, I've managed to lose both of the side lacings, and the only leather laces I can find are the square profile ones - anyone know where I could get some nice flat ones from? I'm in the UK, so would prefer a supplier over here if possible

 

Thanks

Mous

Dear Mous,

Your jacket style # 125 is a Naked Leather, we actually recommend nothing to be put on the jacket. If you feel you need to put something on the leather, we would only recommend Saddle Soap or Mink Oil to keep the leather moist and retain a soft hand.

Caution: These products may cause shading or cause the leather to darken, this is the reason we do not like to recommend a product for naked leather. Naked leather has no finish, allowing any product to be absorbed into the leather. In naked leather because it has no finish the natural oils are allowed to naturally keep the jacket moist and retain a soft hand. When applying any product to leather always test the product first on a none visibly area for any discoloration, shading, spotting or darkening of the leather.

Because it is a older jacket you may want to have the jacket professionally cleaned and reconditioned by a specialist. I have listed a website below you can check for information for professionally leather cleaners. For the side laces needed please email me at gail@schottnyc.com  and I will help you replace the laces. Gail
