    Using "Leather Honey"conditioner on my ELC Irvin (demo)

    This is a demo I thought may be interesting to some of you on using Leather Honey conditioner and I’m using my ELC 1942 pattern Irvin for the demonstration. When I first saw this pattern jacket, it was in the old ELC “Golden Book” and it leapt from the pages and said “Buy me! Buy me!” and I...

    Why do boots need leather conditioner?

    Other than being exposed to dirt/puddles of water/more severe knicks and abrasion, why is it that boots need to be maintained much more regularly than jackets? If I have a Horween CXL jacket that doesn't need any conditioner for ten years, wouldn't it make sense that my boots of identical...

    Hi all, I've always used Pecards for all my leather conditioning needs. But I have a couple particularly stiff old leather jackets that even with a few coats of pecards remain dry and stiff. Is there a conditioner out there I should be using for these tricky buggers? I've heard a lot about...

    Hi, I just purchased an Aero B-6 and was wondering what you guys recommend to condition/protect the leather. I've heard that you do not want to use regular leather conditioner on a shearling as this may clog the pores. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Hi wonderful people, I've done a research on leather conditioner based on the knowledge in this forum (I've been amazed on the knowledge sharing practice in this place) and from my limited understanding Lexol is a good non-petroleum leather condition thus I have decided to give a try (it's to...

    For those older jackets that seem to be drying out, what are the arguements for and against mink oil as opposed to something like, say, Pecard?
