Essential Tips to Correctly Store Your Leather Jackets

Many of us have at least one leather jacket that we treat like gold. The leather jacket is something that we cherish, and keeping it in good condition by taking it from season to season and year to year is an important part of that. Below are some tips for keeping your leather jacket in tip-top shape.

Essential Tips to Correctly Store Your Leather Jackets

1 - Use Wide Hangers

Sometimes in our haste to put away the leather jacket, we pull it from the closet hanger only to put it back on the same hanger. When you pull the jacket off the hanger, the shirt or scarf that you have been wearing often gets caught in the sleeve. This can result in a very wrinkled leather jacket when you take it out of the closet.

To avoid this problem, use a wide, padded hanger that allows the leather to hang over the sides of the hanger to avoid getting caught on the hanger.

2 - Clean with Leather Conditioner

To clean leather jackets, you need to use a leather conditioner. This will keep the leather soft and flexible and prevent cracking. Just like you condition your hair, you need to condition your leather jackets. Be sure to read the directions on the conditioner before applying it to your jacket.

If your jacket is not very dirty, then you can simply use a damp sponge to wipe down the suede. However, if your leather is very dirty, you may need to use a garment brush to remove the dirt.

3 - Use a Leather Brush

Once you have cleaned your leather jacket, you will want to use a leather brush to remove any remaining dust and debris. Use a brush made for suede because it will be gentler on the material.

4 - Store in a Climate Controlled Area

Your leather jacket is an investment, so you want to ensure that damage does not come to it. Temperatures and humidity can have damaging effects on the leather, so avoid storing it in an attic where it is too hot in summer and cold in winter. 

5 - Consider Storage Containers

Some people prefer to put their leather jackets away and forget about them, while others want to be able to take them out and wear them any time they want. A good compromise is to protect your leather by covering the jacket with a storage container.

You can cover the entire jacket in plastic wrap, or you can place the jacket in a large zip lock bag instead. This will keep out dust and other particles and keep the jacket clean and ready for wear.


There is a reason why people continue to buy leather jackets year after year. The leather jacket is a classic and timeless piece of clothing that is appropriate for many different types of occasions. Whether you are looking for a casual look or a dressy look, a leather jacket can be your answer.

By using these tips for taking care of your leather jacket, you can ensure that you are able to wear it for many years.
