Hi all, Now that I have acquired a couple of jackets from (I believe) the 50's and/or 60's, I am wondering whether to try and "restore" some color, lustre and additional suppleness to the leather, or NOT. This thread is not meant to bring up "which leather treatment or conditioner is "best", as I did a couple of searches and found more info than I could process. I couldn't really assess what was best for the jackets. The question I have for you, fellow vintage jacketeers, is who among you would choose to recondition the leather and who would choose to leave it "as is?" I notice that both the jackets I have received, from knowledgeable fellow Loungers, appear to be unmolested, that is passed on to me as found. However, I don't really know what was done to them before I got them. For the record, neither of them is as stiff as that Bates that Gamma was displaying the other day. Both my jackets are completely wearable and the leather may be stiff (the CHP), though they do of course show show their age. The Cal-Leathers has probably a little more suppleness. For the moment, I am inclined to just let them be. My background in vintage is guitars, and with those you really don't mess with the finish. I welcome your comments. Thanks.
