Restore Leather Jacket

Dena Hamilton - Friday, June 24, 2011
This a jacket we restored - before and after!






Cleaning and reconditioning leather jackets or coats is probably the largest part of what we do at Leather CARE Specialists™. We do not spray on dye and finisher, which is the dye-ing they do at the dry cleaners. (Necessary for suede and brushed finish leathers). These photos show our restoration work, accomplished by applying penetrating layers of several products, and allowing time in between to dry.

Skins are as different as people, and the more experience you have, the better your assessment of each individual skins' properties, the desired outcome, and an accurate application of care products.

I have been working with leather, primarily garment leather, for many, many years and I have seen and restored all kinds of leather. Besides the feeling I get when I see a beautiful and seemingly miraculous transformation of a skin, the customer's pleasure over a returned finished item is a real joy for me.

I understand old military items are irreplaceable and deserve the utmost respect in handling. I would like very much to see your items and speak to you on the phone about what I believe they need, what your possible options might be, and what you would like for me to do specifically. It is better to have the leather items in hand of course, but we can definitely talk over photos."

Thank you!
Dena Hamilton

i like my old leather jacket A LOT. i thought it was done for. came across this place in a last ditch web search before giving up on the coat. after what dena has done, i'm convinced that it can last FOREVER. it's really quite something to have a favorite
garment looking and feeling new after so many years. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SERVICE. jeez, how refreshing to have such good, straightforward service from someone who has mastered a useful craft.
