Types Of Leather Jackets
Leather jackets for kids, like the ones for adults, come in many shapes and colors. This is why it is important to decide which design suits your child most. Here are the main types you can find on the market:
- The classic bomber jacket – less tailored and thicker;
- Italian leather jackets – more tailored cut and soft leather;
- Motorcycle jackets – with many buckles and zippers;
- Leather jackets in asymmetrical cuts – an old classic look;
- Hooded leather jackets – may have zip-off sleeves;
- Vintage leather jackets.
Natural Leather Vs. Synthetic Leather
Natural leather is known to be very durable and if cared properly can even last a lifetime. This is why it is more expensive than synthetic leather. The type of leather used in tailoring a jacket is extremely important because it is an important factor in its function and feel. The most commonly used leathers are:
- Cowhide: known for its toughness, durability and resistance to water and dirt. Most commonly found in motorcycle jackets.
- Bison: similar to cowhide, but it has a richer look and texture.
- Deerskin: is dense and very durable. The leather jackets made from it get softer and softer the more they are worn.
- Goat skin: is supple, soft and light. The more you wear it, the better it looks.
- Lambskin: luxurious texture and very soft. It is also very lightweight, making it very comfortable to wear.
Faux or synthetic leather is a fabric that looks like natural leather. It is cheaper, but it can deteriorate quicker if it is worn frequently. The material is very pliable with a more shiny appearance. It is also less thick than the genuine leather. There are two main types of synthetic leather:
- Polyvinyl chloride (PVC): very flexible and has a natural color.
- Polyurethane: flexible and has an animal hide look
