Stitching and skin types
So how do you go about buying one for yourself? A couple of things to watch out for.
First is the quality of the material. You can touch the leather and feel its smooth plain texture. If there are many dyes and oily surface on the layer of the jacket then the durability will be affected. Preferably, go for uncorrected leathers which retain their softness naturally.
Secondly, pay attention to the stitching and lining of the jackets which can be seen as a tell-tale sign of the quality. If there are loose threads and thin lining on the jackets it’s not meant for long durability. Good durable jackets are created keeping in mind the dense stitching and thick lining.Do you own a leather jacket? Tell us about your biker look in the comments section below.
