I've always thought of Vicenza as a 'dry' leather, but does it have some waxes inside?

My Vicenza jacket arrived in the winter, and I wore it often through the spring and it's always been stiff (not unpleasantly so.)

I wore it yesterday, and the weather suddenly turned hot by afternoon. Once it did, I noticed that the jacket felt lambskin/textile levels of soft, which was a shock.

Vicenza is will definitely show some reaction to temperature changes! While Vicenza is not nearly as waxy as other other leathers (like CXL and Bainbridge), the fat/oil in the leather is enough to make it moderately pliable in cold weather and super soft when the weather heats up. Enjoy :cool:

We just shipped this sweet custom Aeromarine off to its new home in Ohio! It's made with Blackened Brown Vicenza (request was for a smoother grain hide) and an olive cotton sateen lining. The final result is a stylish jacket for mild weather that can take some warm layers for the fall!
