How to Care for Leather Steampunk Outfits

When you buy the leather clothes, find out the type of leather it is. The type of animal it came from is not important, but you need to know if it is pigmented, semi-aniline or aniline leather. This will affect how you care for it and more importantly how well you need to look after it in the first place.
Before wearing, treat it with a suede and leather guard, like a scotch guard for leather furniture. This is usually a spray on application and will help prevent the ingress of water, stains or grime.

When you take the cloth off, hang it on a well shaped hanger as often as possible. You know from leather footwear that leather will stretch so try to avoid hanging on clothes pegs where the stress on the leather is very likely to be transformed.

If you get it wet, don't worry but try not to allow it to become saturated. When it does get wet, hang it on a well shaped hanger and allow it to dry at room temperature and away from any direct heat sources such as radiators or airing cupboards.
Whatever you do to care or clean your leather jacket always test anything you intend to apply to the skin in a small hidden area of the jacket first, this will make sure you are aware of any adverse effects the product will have on your leather jacket before it's too late.
