Smells, Smoke and Leather Jackets...

Discussion in 'Outerwear' started by PEPPE COTRUFO, Sep 14, 2020.

  1. Hi guys, can smells and smoke coming from a kitchen ruin the patina of leather jackets displayed in another room a few meters away?
    when I have to change the air in the apartment opening the door and the smells reach the area where I have the jackets on display, and I don't know how important this can be, if anyone has had the same experience, or has an idea about it, I would be grateful if help me understand, thank you!

    Short answer - yes, in time they will be affected. Not anywhere near as much as cigarette smoke, which tends to be a multiple times per day, and very close proximity to the jacket when worn, smell-acquiring episode. If only a short instance of smoke from a kitchen, probably not a big issue.

    Agreed. Don't see how it would have any effect on the patina of the jacket. Might cause the jacket to have unpleasant odors, though.

    Not sure what you mean by 'ruin that patina' - patina generally referes to the stains, scuffing and grunk that come with wear - so patina is not so easy to ruin. If you are asking will some vague cooking smells coming in through the door change the look of your jacket. No.

    Sorry, I missed the Patina word - no it will not affect the Patina itself... :)

    Will add to the patina if you stir fry while wearing the jacket :D

    Patina is 'good ruin'.

  9. Thank you everyone, however for ruined parina, I meant that the jackets could become opaque...

    if you run a BBQ joint and roasting for hours then your jacket might be affected it will smell like your BBQ, maybe if the soot if not exhausted properly the jacket might get black soot but so does your entire wall and ceiling overtime, if you just cook meal normally at home and your jacket is in the next room then I bet the patina is not affected by the smell, if even affected with oil in the smokey air then it will get more oily and adds to the patina when you wipe it down. but it seems very overthinking it.
