Pit stains and armpit blow out prevention
i have a predisposition to sweating quite a bit, and i frequently find my jackets with pit stains upon taking them off. when i consider that the armpits of a jacket are frequently experiencing friction, with the fact that sweat can be some what acidic, i worry that i will be blowing out the armpits of my jackets sooner than normal. if i let my pit stains dry naturally, i can usually wipe them down with a wet pad and remove the stain, but i also know that wetting and drying the leather will contribute to dryness and cracking, so this is another concern.
i cant do much layering since its quite warm in california, so i usually just have a tee shirt under my jacket, and both my schott 613sh and per22 suffer from said pit stains, though the per 22 gets soaked through alot easier that the 613sh.
my question is, is there anything i could be doing to improve the longevity of the jackets armhole friction points? should i wipe down the jacket as sparingly as possible, is there something i should be doing differently?
