How to soften leather jackets

Want soft leather but don’t want to shell out your hard-earned cash on a jacket that’s been worn by someone else already? You’ll need to soften a brand spanking new one first then. Here’s a quick how-to:

You will need:

  • A leather conditioner

  • Microfibre cloth

  • Half an hour

  • A decent Netflix show to watch while you’re doing things

Step 1 – Take extra care

You’ve probably spent a fair amount of your wages on that leather jacket – so you’ve gotta be careful, to avoid ruining the look. Think about the material like your own skin. When you’ve been good and downed a couple of litres a day yours looks fresh – right? So, to soften up leather, you need a lot of moisture and a good conditioner.

Step 2 – Apply your leather conditioner

Grab your microfibre cloth – Amazon or your local supermarket can sort you out with one of these – and pour some leather conditioner onto this. Then start applying it to areas of your leather jacket that you want to soften up, like the sleeves and back.

Step 3 – Rub it in

With firm strokes, use the microfibre cloth to really get into the leather. You can be a bit heavy handed to achieve that well worn look.
