Most of the time, no matter what leather you get and where you live the leather jacket will be breathable and flexible enough to adjust to your body - making your leather more comfortable over time. 

The Variety 
Leather comes in all different colors - from black, brown, and grey to brighter colors you can really find something for everyone. The color of dyed leather can be long lasting, but after time you might need to have it restored after some time. Lucky for you, we have leather restoration services here at Jonval!
