Just because people don’t know the proper method of cleaning jackets and maintaining them, they have made this myth that fabric is better than leather jackets. A jacket needs proper maintenance and if you are not providing it with that it will definitely lose its shine and durability. Anyway, leather is better than fabric.
6: Jackets Durability depends on its price
It is a popular myth that the expensive leather jacket is more durable. It is a wrong statement because the manufacturing procedure of the jackets is almost the same for every jacket. The only difference is that the high jacket either belongs to a big brand or is being sold by an agent.

You can easily find these markets in your neighborhood. They repair different types of leather jackets and make them look like new again.

It is a myth which is completely wrong because over time jackets do not become rough they become soft. Yes, if you will use your jacket daily you can feel that they are softer than before. It will be more comfortable after a few years and it’s one of the best features of leather jackets.
9: Don’t wash Leather
Leather jackets are washable and waterproof. They can bear moisture because of their leather which is used in the production of leather jackets. You can even go outside in the rain wearing jacket water will not damage it. So do not be afraid to wash your jackets with water otherwise it will look dirty and smelly.
10: Jackets are made up of CowHide
Cowhide is one of the most common leather which is used in leather jacket manufacturing. However, there are other animals hide such as sheep hide. If you don’t like cowhide jackets then you can buy a sheep side jacket but it is a myth that jackets are made up of only cowhide.
In summary, these were the myths about leather jackets that I debunked. Just because people don’t have the knowledge about something they make myths and misconceptions.
