3 Ways Tailoring Can Improve a Leather Jacket, New York, New York

Leather is a sturdy and durable material, designed to last for years while keeping you warm and maintaining its sophisticated appearance. But, as with any piece of clothing, a leather jacket can benefit from some occasional tailoring to help extend the lifespan of the garment and make it look and feel even better. Below are three ways tailoring can improve a leather jacket.

3 Benefits of Tailoring a Leather Jacket

1. Replace the Lining

The lining of a jacket can be replaced to keep the inside of the garment warm and comfortable. The lining material often rubs up against your clothing whenever you wear a jacket. Over time, this can result in the lining wearing away, developing holes, or coming loose. Tailoring replenishes this layer and better protects you from the elements.

2. Shine the Material

A tailor understands the unique care requirements a leather jacket demands to look its best. They will apply leather polishes that restore shine and bring out the sleek natural appeal of the material. Never underestimate the power of a professional shining; the process can make decades-old leather jackets look fresh off the rack.

3. Repair or Replace the Zipper

tailoringConsider how many times a zipper on a leather jacket is used throughout the day. It's not surprising that zippers sometimes break or fall off completely. And a leather jacket without a zipper is little more than an accessory; it wouldn't be much use in keeping you warm. A tailor will easily repair or replace a broken zipper and ensure the jacket is secure and dependable for the years ahead.
