The saying, “old is gold”, fits perfectly when it comes to leather jackets and leather pants. Leather develops more character as it ages which is why most fashionable women prefer the appeal of “old leather” these days as opposed to new leather.
In general, leather develops a patina when it ages which gives it a darker color and a unique finish. Gradually, this layer would give the leather jacket or pants a different appearance because the natural marks on the leather would start becoming more noticeable. As leather is sourced from animal hide it can contain natural wrinkles and form small markings on the surface. These tiny markings and can add a rugged character and appeal to your premium leather jacket or pants.
