The Leather Jacket
Any great leather jacket mould and crinkle around seams and along joints, around the pockets and at the elbows, fits better and becomes suppler with time. What betters even more is the colour distortion and subtle patina around the pockets, at elbows and along collars. A great leather jacket lasts a lifetime and you will never need another.

In time it takes on natural and unique characteristics, cotton becomes more pliable and moulds to a better shape. Natural blemishes around knees and thighs are natural and fade lines differ from one wearer to another.
