Fantastic fur coat options for this fall and beyond!

With fall fast approaching, you may be considering what outerwear pieces to invest in. While we always recommend you consider adding a timeless Denver leather jacket to your wardrobe, purchasing a fall-appropriate fur coat is another fantastic option! By adding a fur coat to your outerwear arsenal, you can create even more fabulous autumn ensembles and stay on-trend. As a bonus, these coats will transition seamlessly into the winter months- giving you even more bang for your buck! If you are ready to add fur to your fall wardrobe, our experts have you covered with four amazing options below.


Made from sheepskin, shearling coats are fantastic additions to any fall wardrobe. Boasting beauty and warmth, these jackets are great for keeping the cold at bay while looking effortlessly chic. Because shearling is often less heavy than a traditional fur coat, this option is great for those who plan to wear their coat for a variety of different activities. Shearling is also available in a wide range of color combinations and lengths. While luxury furs like mink and chinchilla can be quite costly, shorter shearling coats and vests can offer a more approachable price.  

Fur-lined leather

We are huge fans of quality Denver leather jackets. However, for some, this may not be enough, especially chilly evenings. For those looking for extra warmth and a unique style, fur-lined leather jackets may be just what you need. While these coats offer the exceptional durability and fit of leather, they also provide a touch of luxurious fur on the interior or exterior lining of the coat. Perfect for any gender, this jacket works for any occasion and style. For those looking to wear their fur-lined leather jacket throughout the fall, we recommend investing in styles like a shearling-lined aviator jacket or a fox-collared biker jacket.


Considered one of the softest and most luxurious options available, it is no wonder coats made from this fur are highly sought-after. While these can be very costly, mink coats can last decades and work for almost any weather. For those considering a mink outerwear option for the fall, we recommend purchasing a style that is cropped or waist-length. We also suggest investing in a mink coat that is a light color, such as shades of cream or tan, as this often attracts less heat from the sun.


Another popular option, rabbit fur is ideal for those seeking trendy fur coat styles that are a bit more cost-effective than other luxury furs. Because rabbit fur is lightweight and available in a plethora of color options, it is a great fall coat material! We recommend investing in rabbit fur coats that have been sheared for a fun, sporty look.

As autumn approaches and temperatures cool, you may be considering purchasing a new Denver leather jacket. If that is the case, now is the perfect time to invest in a custom leather jacket from Jonval Leather and Furs. Although you can always buy a beautiful, ready-made jacket, custom allows you the opportunity to own a perfectly tailored and truly one-of-a-kind piece. With a custom leather jacket, you have complete control. Say goodbye to awkward fits, too-short lengths, and not-quite-right styles.

Consider what you want

Before setting your appointment with one of our expert leather designers, consider what you are looking for. Making the decision to invest in a custom piece requires a lot of decision making. A great place to start is collecting photographs of what you like. See a studded pocket or slim style you know would look great, save, or print, a picture of it.

Set the appointment

Once you have a design in mind, fill out a request form here. After the form has been submitted, your designer will reach out and help you schedule your first appointment.

Design your dream jacket

Working directly with our expert designers, you will discuss exactly what you are looking for in a custom jacket. You will be presented with endless options regarding color, grade, material, fit, and style. As your designer works tirelessly to make you dream jacket a reality, you will be presented with multiple sketches of the jacket design. You will review these and offer feedback until the sketch is exactly what you are looking for. Once that happens, the fun starts. Our designers will use your exact measurements and preferences to assemble your perfect jacket.

Rock your leather jacket

Custom leather jackets can take anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks to complete (unfortunately, perfection takes time). However, your designer will regularly update you on the status of your garment. Once you have received your custom leather jacket, it is time to rock it! Just remember to protect your investment by taking proper care of it.

The do’s and don’ts of wearing your Denver leather jacket this Halloween

August 30, 2021

The do’s and don’ts of wearing your Denver leather jacket this Halloween

With fall in full swing and Halloween only a few weeks away, we felt it was a great time to discuss some tips for rocking your leather jacket during this years’ festivities. Whether your trick-or-treating with little ones or incorporating your jacket into this year’s costume, we have rounded up a few things you should consider on this ghoulishly delightful holiday.

Do pair with a costume

Your leather jacket is great inspiration for a number of Halloween costumes! For the perfect 1950s biker boy (or girl) costume, wear your favorite black bomber or motorcycle jacket with a pair of cuffed jeans, a white t-shirt, and slicked back hair. For those with brown leather jackets, consider pairing with wide-leg khakis, a black shirt, and a dark brown fedora to transform into everyone’s favorite archeologist. For a famous flying female inspired look, pair your favorite bomber jacket with high-waisted trousers, a silky scarf tied at the neck, and an aviator hat with goggles. With endless possibilities, your leather jacket is the perfect addition to an impromptu or DIY Halloween costume.

Don’t mix with makeup or paint

Although it may be tempting to paint on your leather jacket to transform it into the perfect costume accessory, we seriously recommend that you do not. Fabric paints and sticky decals can cause stains or leave residue that cannot be removed by even the most specialized of cleaners. If you absolutely must have your jacket customized for your Halloween costume, it is very important to consider if it is worth potentially ruining your investment piece. If you can, we recommend skipping this part of the costume or purchasing an inexpensive jacket to customize. Also, if your costume involves heavy makeup on your hands, collar, chest, or neck consider skipping the leather jacket. These items have oils and dyes that can have bad interactions with your leather jacket, drying it out or creating hard to remove stains.

Do add style to your trick-or-treating

Whether passing out candy or taking the little ones for a socially distant trick-or-treat, wearing your leather jacket with or without a costume is great for Halloween! With fall temperatures ranging from mild to downright blustery, a leather jacket can help keep you keep warm and stylish while walking with the kiddos or handing out treats. For those with newer leather jackets, this can also be a great opportunity to break-in your jacket.

Don’t wear in the rain

Some leather does not respond well to water or being soaked. Because of this, we highly recommend you check the care instructions on your garment and the weather prior to your Halloween outing. If you will be spending lots of time outdoors and heavy rain is in the forecast, consider something that is more water resistant.

Common leather jacket repairs from your Denver leather store

Common leather jacket repairs from your Denver leather store

From scratches and scrapes to rips and lost zippers, you may find yourself in need of Denver leather jacket repair. Depending on the severity of the damage and your needs, you may be surprised to learn there are a few things you can do yourself and a few things you should always leave to the professionals. Learn more about mending minor damages, how to determine when you need a professional repair, and preventative measures you can take, below!

Mending minor damages

For minor scratches and scuffs, it is sometimes possible to mend your Denver leather jacket without the aid of leather professionals. To do this, we recommend using a quality leather oil and conditioner. First, be sure that your jacket is clean and dry. Next, apply a small amount of leather oil with a dry cloth to the scratch, and use circular motions to gently buff the area. Once the oil has dried, apply a small amount of leather conditioner to keep the material in optimal condition. If the scratch or scuff is still visible, we suggest calling our Denver leather repair experts for additional advice. Before using any specialty oils or conditioners, be sure to read the care instructions on your garment’s label or contact a leather professional.  

When you need an expert

Although it may be tempting to try to make every jacket repair yourself, this can lead to further (and potentially irreparable) damage. This is especially true of rips and tears in your leather jacket. Never try to sow sew or mend a tear in your leather jacket by yourself, as this could leave holes in the leather and potentially worsen the rip. For severe scrapes and scratches (or minor scuffs that are not lessened by the steps above), always contact a reputable Denver leather repair service like those available at Jonval. Finally, if your jacket has become extremely dirty, never try to wash or dry it at home. Because leather requires very specific cleaning products and drying techniques, washing or drying your jacket at home could cause brittleness, extreme cracks, and severe damage.

Preventative Measures

The best way to keep your Denver leather jacket in great condition is to utilize preventative measures. Try to avoid wearing your leather jacket in situations you know may damage it, like during exercise or arduous activities. We also suggest regularly conditioning your jacket with quality, leather-specific oils and creams (as long as the care instructions allow it). Doing this will help establish a protective layer over your jacket and potentially make it less susceptible to minor damages. Lastly, always keep an eye on vulnerable portions of your garment (like the elbows and shoulders). If you notice these areas becoming distressed easily, contact our team to discuss reinforcement and repair options.

Accessorizing your Denver leather jacket for the summer

Accessorizing your Denver leather jacket for the summer

Leather jackets or stylish enough to wear without any accessories - however accessorizing is an important element no matter what you are wearing! A great accessory can transform your look, create a signature style, and even convey a mood or feeling. From handbags and jewelry to sunglasses, learn more about what accessories to incorporate with items in your closet. Then, you can learn how to use these accessories along with a Denver leather jacket. 

Start with a Great Bag

If you are looking to up your handbag game this summer, think bright! When it comes to spring bags, whether it is a purse, satchel, cross bag, wristlet or others, the trend this spring is anything in a bright color. This can be a pastel, from pinks and blues, to bold shades of colors too. Nude or neutral color bags are also in style during the spring, which can easily match with any style of clothes. In addition, many bags also have embellishments and designs to help give them an extra bit of flair. A style that is popular this season have to do with the size of bags. There are wallet/wristlet-size bags that include a shoulder strap that many love to carry. Others? They prefer the larger style of bags. Oversized bags are great if you need to carry many items with you. 

Add Some Bling

For the latest in jewelry accessory trends, bonbon earrings are on the rise. You could also call these “statement earrings,” like a “statement necklace.” These are long dangling earrings composed of large circles. They are available in a wide variety of colors to pair with any outfit. And while these bold earrings are on the rise, a simple, thin choker necklace is also on the rise. Another must-have for the longer days are sunglasses. The aviator style still remains a popular choice for glasses.

More Leather!

Just because the temperatures are rising doesn’t mean you can’t rock a great leather jacket. Spring is filled with cooler days and the evenings are often cool as well, even in the summer. If you have a brown or worn black leather jacket, pair it with a pastel or neutral handbag that doesn’t overly compete. However, you could pair bonbon style earrings with a jacket to help add an extra pop to your style. If you wear your jacket during the day, they pair very well with both aviator and retro-style sunglasses. Last, don’t forget that leather bags are reliable and a great accessory to add to your closet.
