Taking care of your Denver leather jacket

May 3, 2021

From the classic bomber to cafe racer, there is truly a leather jacket for every style and taste. Your Denver leather jacket is a timeless piece that, when properly cared for, can last decades. However, many are unaware of the best practices when caring for their Denver leather apparel. At Jonval Leathers and Furs, we know all about the importance of leather upkeep. Because of this, we have compiled a few tips to keep your leather jacket looking fresh for years to come.  

“No wire hangers, ever!”

Much like oil and water, wire hangers and your Denver leather do not mix. Although this might seem a bit dramatic, wire hangers can severely alter your leather jacket, especially in the shoulders. Instead opt for a wide, preferably padded hanger. Be sure to hang your jacket in an area that is well ventilated and away from extreme heat or sun (see tip 3). You should also make it a habit to hang your jacket, rather than folding it. Keeping your leather jacket folded for extended periods of time can cause unwanted creases and other types of damage that may not be repairable.

Check the weather

Although we always encourage you to rock your Denver leather jacket, if there is significant rain on the horizon, it might be best to leave the leather at home. Prolonged exposure to a good deal of water (think torrential downpour) can cause damage. If your jacket does get caught in the rain, do not fret! Water exposure most likely will not ruin your prized possession but be sure to hang your leather jacket to dry on a proper hanger (see tip 1) away from direct heat as soon as you possibly can. If you live in an area with frequent rain, consider consulting with our leather specialists on waterproofing options and the best type of leather for your climate.

Clean and store properly

Do not put your Denver leather jacket in the washing machine (we are so serious). Tossing your leather jacket in the wash can cause irreparable damage and ruin your favorite leather piece. Instead, we highly recommend you utilize our outstanding cleaning services. For small stains, a slightly damp cloth can sometimes do the trick.
However, we highly suggest you consult with our experts before trying to remove any stains yourself. If you find a small hole or rip, do not try to mend it yourself. Instead, make an appointment with our fantastic team of tailors. When storing your leather jacket at home, be sure to keep it in a dry, well-ventilated space with plenty of room to breathe. Do not allow your jacket to be exposed to direct heat or sun, as this can severely dry out your leather, causing it to become brittle and crack.

Three reasons to add a leather jacket to your wardrobe from your Denver leather store

April 22, 2021

If you have been considering adding a quality Denver leather jacket to your wardrobe, we think now is the perfect time to buy! Stop wasting your money on faux pieces you only wear once. Instead, invest in a material that will fit you perfectly, last for years to come, and get better with age! If you still are not convinced, check out these three fantastic reasons to add this essential piece to your closet, below.

Leather jackets are versatile

From pairing perfectly with your favorite jeans and t-shirt to adding an edgy elegance to your favorite formal pieces, a Denver leather jacket goes with (just about) anything. One of the many reasons this outerwear option has remained a favorite of fashionistas, motorcyclists, punk rockers, and the average joe is its extremely versatile nature. From bright-colored, trendy designs that scream style to neutral toned, traditional fits that look great on anyone- the options for a leather jacket are seemingly endless (especially if you opt for a custom leather creation).

Leather offers durability and longevity

This extremely durable material lasts longer than you may think. In fact, a properly cleaned and cared for leather jacket can remain wearable for twenty years. Leather’s longevity is one of the many reasons your Denver leather jacket can remain a wardrobe staple for years (even decades) to come! Searching for a unique heirloom investment piece to pass down to a child or loved one? A high-quality leather jacket is just the thing! Also, because leather naturally forms to your body and gently wears over time, your jacket will look even better with age. Styles may change, but your Denver leather jacket will remain a fashionable favorite for years.  

Leather jackets are functional and fashionable

Leather jackets also offer great protection from the elements and can be worn in just about any season. Because leather is often very water resistant and offers warmth, this fabric is great for layering in the fall, winter, and spring! You can even wear your Denver leather in the summer, as many light leather jacket styles offer breathability. A leather jacket is also a great investment for motorcycle riders. Because leather offers superior insulation while also providing additional padding, this textile can help protect motorcyclists from the elements and injuries. Because there are lightweight and heavy-duty options, leather jackets are also fantastic at allowing a varying range of flexibility. However, no matter how heavy-duty your leather piece is, it will always offer endless amounts of comfort. Regardless of how and why you wear it, your leather jacket will keep you warm, dry, and (of course) stylish.

From brightly colored stripes to beautiful watercolor prints, adorning your leather atop these trends adds an instant touch of edgy elegance. For an outfit that screams spring, consider pairing your favorite fitted leather jacket with a romantic floral print midi-skirt and neutral top. For those who prefer trousers over skirts, try a brightly checkered pant instead. Own a vibrant leather jacket you have been dying to wear? Now is the perfect time to pair these bold pieces with your favorite go-to spring looks.

Go Grunge

It seems the grunge trend is still alive and well this spring season. From distressed skinnies and graphic tops to baggy jeans and oversized tees, this trend is easy to copy and instantly upgraded with a classic black leather jacket. For those who want to awaken their inner 90’s Rockstar, we suggest going monochromatic with a black fitted t-shirt, black jeans (rips optional), black moto-cross boots, and black leather jacket. For added style, consider pairing with bold statement jewelry or a sleek timepiece. For a more casual option, pair your jacket with straight-leg black jeans, a classic plaid t-shirt, and black slip-ons. For the simplest grunge look of all, adorn your classic black leather jacket atop a crisp white t-shirt and blue jeans.

Mix leather with leather

With leather being used to create many everyday basics, this spring and summer trend is great for those looking to stock their wardrobe with investment pieces. From black leather maxi skirts and midi-dresses to the always stylish leather pant, it is easy to pair these classic pieces with your favorite leather jacket. For the perfect leather pairing, mix fitted black leather pants with a lighter weight turtleneck and your favorite black leather jacket. Swap the leather pants for a leather A-line skirt, for an edgy yet feminine look that can be worn at the office or during happy hour.

Three things to consider when purchasing the perfect Denver leather jacket

March 29, 2021

With spring temperatures finally on the horizon, now is the perfect time to add a new Denver leather jacket to your outerwear arsenal! Versatile, durable, and always stylish- these timeless pieces pair perfectly with just about any spring outfit. If you are ready to take the plunge and invest in a quality leather jacket, there are a few things you should think about before buying. From the fit and style to its purpose, our experts have rounded up three things we think you should consider prior to purchasing a leather jacket. Find out more below!

Its purpose

Whether you are buying a new leather jacket to stay warm when riding your motorcycle or simply to look chic while window shopping, recognizing the main purpose for your leather jacket is essential prior to purchasing. For example, those looking for added layers of protection and insulation may want to opt for a thicker leather jacket that offers wind resistance and extreme durability. However, those looking for something light and breathable to wear after work or on weekends may want to consider something thinner with a sleek, minimalist style. Always consider what activities you will be engaging in most while wearing your jacket.  

The style

The style of your jacket should be a reflection of your personal style. A great leather jacket can pair with just about anything. However, if it is not suited to your tastes, you may rarely (if ever) wear it. For those with an edgy spirit, you may want to consider the café racer or traditional motocross style. For those looking for something casual and sporty, a brown bomber jacket may be just the ticket. You can also have fun with styles boasting bright colors and interesting lengths, although these may not have the staying power classic cuts offer. When choosing your jacket style, we also suggest inspecting the jacket’s detailing. For a long-term piece, look for leather with minimal detailing (as these can date your jacket) and neutral colored hardware.

The fit

From shoulders that are too snug to sleeve and hem lengths that are too long, choosing a jacket that fits properly is one of the most important things to consider prior to purchasing a leather jacket. To make sure you find the perfect fit, we always recommend trying on your jacket before buying (if possible). We also suggest selecting a fit that allows for light layering. You do not want the jacket to be too baggy, but too tight will be uncomfortable and unflattering.
