At the time of wearing...
*Try to wear a scarf around your neck to prevent the garment from becoming soiled by skin oils.
*Avoid cleaning fluids, shoe creams and saddle soaps.
*Do not allow a leather garment to become over soiled. (Most people have a tendency to wear split-cowhide garments far too long which
creates heavy ingrained soil.) Remember...age sets spots and stains. Garments should be cleaned by a professional suede and leather cleaner
*In winter promptly remove salt deposits from garments by having the garment professionally cleaned.
*Avoid storing in areas of extreme temperatures, wetness or dryness.
*Avoid spraying perfumes or hair sprays while wearing your garment and do not apply pins, adhesive badges or tape.
*Do not store in plastic bags; leather must have air circulation to keep them from drying out. Do not store soiled garments. Store in a
cool, ventilated closet on the proper hanger or professionally store.
*Wet garments should be allowed to dry out naturally. DO NOT PUT THE GARMENT IN HEAT! After drying, a high density type sponge
will raise the nap again. If the wet garment is dirty, it may need professional cleaning.
At the time of cleaning...
*Genuine suede and leather require special processing to preserve finish, feel and color. Therefore, you should take your garment to a
professional suede and leather cleaner equipped for this type of cleaning.
*Care labels and hang tags should accompany your suede or leather garment when taken to be cleaned.
*Unless all pieces of a multi-piece outfit are processed at the same time there cannot be a guarantee that they will match after cleaning.
*Advise your cleaner of stains or spots, whether visible or not. He will then know how best to handle your garment.
*It is a good practice to remove buckles, ornaments and hardware or ask your cleaner for special handling
*Be sure to remove all articles from pockets.
After cleaning...
*Inspect your garments immediately. DO NOT wait several months before you remove them from the bag. Should you have any problems
or questions, do not hesitate to contact your professional suede and leather cleaner.
*Be sure to hang leather garments on wide or padded hangers to maintain their shape.
At the time of purchase...
*Read care labels and hang tags carefullly...save them!
*Question salespeople before making your purchase.
*Be sure of decoration...keep it simple...due to the mechanical action, fancy
decorations may not stand-up during the normal cleaning procedures.
